KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE
Vata, pitta or kapha- detailed understanding of your body type helps you tailor a personal diet and lifestyle plan for achieving and maintaining your optimum health.As you are reading through the descriptions of vata, pitta, and kapha below, keep in mind that your constitution undoubtedly includes all three doshas. This being the case, you may see elements of each dosha that you identify with and others that are less relevant.
Vata Body Type
Vata individuals are typically very tall (or sometimes very short), very thin, and are often underweight. They tend to have protruding joints and irregular features. Vata-type eyes are small, narrow, dull, and often itchy.1 Their skin is typically grayish, dry, dark, cold, and rough. Their hair—usually in scant amounts—tends to be wiry, dry and dull in appearance. Vata types have difficulty sweating and their movements can be awkward and gangly.
The Vata Mind
Vata types are enthusiastic, vibrant, and quick to learn, but also have very poor memory retention. They are often very creative, flexible, mature, spiritually perceptive and mentally disciplined. Vata types make excellent counselors or teachers and are happiest when surrounded by the beauty of nature. The vata nervous system is usually on alert and vata types can be highly sensitive to sounds. The vata mind tends to be restless, and even a bit scattered. That said, vata types often have profound spiritual potential and can be extremely sensitive and attuned to subtle energies.
