Dosha

Definition of Dosha

In the ancient Indian system of Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, there are three doshas or energies within each person. This study of the elements in the body influences personality and health. It can be balanced with certain herbs and foods. Most people have one dominant dosha and one secondary dosha. The three types are vata, pitta and kapha.
