explains that human beings, like the Universe, are made up of the five
elements: air, space, fire, water and earth.

These elements, in their biological form, are known as doshas: Vata,
Pitta and Kapha. Vata is made up of a combination of Air and Space.
Pitta is a combination of Fire and Water. Kapha is made up of a
combination of Earth and Water. The doshas have the qualities of those
elements.

Because we all have all of the elements in our bodies, we all have each
of the doshas as well. But every one of us is born with a unique,
individual balance of these doshas. So, no two of us are alike! The
idea is to find what our own special combination of doshas is, and to
work to keep in balance so that we stay in radiant health, mentally,
emotionally, and physically.

Just about everything could be classified by its dominant dosha. Here
are a few examples of the ways Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are expressed in
the world around us. See if you can begin to guess which dosha you are:

VATA PITTA KAPHA

And just for the fun of it, here are a few celebrities and their doshas:

Ayurveda helps us understand our natural tendencies, how we operate, and
what it takes for us to get along with the people in our lives. Through
learning about our doshas, we are better able to recognize our strengths
and work on our weaknesses. To help keep us in balance, and to bring out
our best qualities, Ayurveda has various lifestyle, diet, and exercise
tips for each dosha.

Ayurveda is indeed the "science of life" and life is all about
relationships. "What's Your Dosha, Baby?" will give you insight into
the individual doshas as well as how they work together. Of course, we
all want healthy relationships in our lives, and Ayurveda helps make
this possible! A quick-tempered Pitta woman, for example, may learn to
be more patient with her even-keeled Kapha partner. Or a "big picture"
Vata man may discover the benefits of being more detail-oriented with
his Pitta bride.

As we grow in this knowledge, our connection with one another becomes
more apparent, and we become more aware of the impact that our
relationships have on the world. We become more compassionate, more
accepting, and more empathetic. May your exploration of my nine "love
matches" and your own relationships bring you to a new depth of
self-knowledge and help you manifest everything your heart desires.
