Why should I know my Ayurvedic body type?
Ayurveda is natural and personalised health care approach. Personalised because everybody has unique body bio-energies. The body bio energies resemble the characteristics in the body, which we typically attach to the elements of: space, air, fire, water and earth.

Any imbalances in your body bio energies can have a substantial effect on your quality of life and keeping your body bio energies in balance with the food and lifestyle choices right for you will transform your life.
BODY TYPE QUESTIONNAIRE
To find out what body type you are, or to find out where you currently have an imbalance, you can use the following questionnaire to get an indication. Your body type would be with you since birth so if things have changed over the years then it might be more indicative of your current imbalance, rather than your body type. We are using the body type analysis to help bring balance to the body.
Excess of 1 ) Imbalanced Vata
When out of balance, vata tends to cause fear, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, and exhaustion. It can lead to both physical and energetic depletion, disrupt proper communication, and cause all sorts of abnormal movements in the body, such as tics, tremors, and muscle spasms.
Excess of 2 ) Imbalanced Pitta
When out of balance, pitta causes fiery, reactionary emotions such as frustration, anger, jealously, and criticism. Imbalanced pitta is often at the root of inflammatory disorders, which can affect organs and tissues throughout the body.
Excess of 3 ) Imbalanced Kapha
When out of balance, kapha triggers emotions of attachment, greed, and possessiveness and can also create stubbornness, lethargy, and resistance to change. Physically, kapha tends to invite stagnation and congestion in organs and tissues throughout the body—including the mind.
To stay as healthy as possible for a long time and to live your best life we want to balance our body bio energies whenever we have the opportunity to do this. It’s easy to do and I invite you on this journey.
