Understanding Tri-Doshas

In Ayurveda, the concept of Doshas, namely Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, explain the fundamental energies that govern the functioning of the human body on the physical and emotional levels. These energies, in turn, are tied to the five basic elements found in the universe – space, air, fire, water and earth. Each of these Doshas is a combination of the elements, and in a balanced state, contributes to a healthy body and mind.
