FIND YOUR AYURVEDIC BODY TYPE WITH THIS FREE DOSHA QUIZ

Are You Vata, Pitta or Kapha?

This free dosha quiz can help you discover your ayurvedic body type, whether Vata, Pitta or Kapha. The three body types in Ayurveda, called doshas, are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each of these doshic body types uses metabolic energy in a unique way. Vata spends energy. Pitta manages it. Kapha stores it. Your body type effects your physical constitution, psychology and way of thinking. Each body type tends to get imbalanced in unique ways as well.

Once you know your dosha, this website can help you balance your unique body type with food, herbs, and lifestyle suggestions! When you are done with this quiz you will be taken to a results page where you can view your doshas, create a diet for your body type, and see product recommendations matching your body type. This test will take approximately four minutes to fill.


Please choose the answers that most accurately fit your body for most of your life.
