Ayurvedic Dosha Quiz

Ayurveda is based on the theory of Tridoshas. This theory explains how the five elements air, fire, water, earth and ether, which make up physical creation, energetically combine to determine the fundamental nature of the individual. In the Tridosha theory, the three vital energies, vata, pitta and kapha govern how a person responds, both psychologically and physically, to the environment.

To determine your Ayurvedic Dosha, please fill out the questionnaire. Your choices are based on what you observe is most consistent over a period of time, rather than your present state. Make the choice that best describes you, or that is the least unlike you if you feel none of them are exact reflections.
