    Prakriti - What is your Unique Constitution?
    Ayurvedic wisdom and teaching guides us on the journey of understanding ourselves and those around us from a deeper perspective.

    Ayurveda teaches that each of us is made up of a unique blend of the Doshas. As we have discussed the doshas the past few weeks of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which doshas do you seem most prominent within yourself?

    Prakriti is our individual constitution acquired at birth and remains constant through life. Our prakroti does not change.

    Your unique body type this is determined at the time of conception by the genetics, diet, lifestyle, and emotions of the parents at the time of conception. In addition, the diet and lifestyle of the mother during the pregnancy, the time, season and family hereditary characteristics also play a role.

    There are 7 basic types of constitution. These are made up of single dosha, dual dosha and tri dosha. Remember - Not every person has the same ration of the doshas and this is why we are all unique!

    1. Vataja.
    2. Pittaja.
    3. Kaphaja.

    4. Vata- pitta.
    5. Vata – kapha.
    6. Kapha- pitta.
    7. Tridosha (Vata/Pitta/Kapha).

    It is important to note that seeing an Ayurvedic practitioner is the best way to truly identify your Prakriti, as it is so easy to be identified with our imbalances. The practitioner will assess your constitution through traditional Ayurvedic examination, including pulse analysis.

    If you are interested in learning more you are welcome to book in with one of our practitioners. Alternatively you can email us with any questions. 

    With love, the Lakshmi team.
