The five elements—space, air, fire, water, and earth—give rise to the three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. They combine in an infinite number of ways to determine each person’s unique dosha type.

Vata is like the wind—dry, light, subtle, irregular, quick, mobile, and changeable. Those with a predominance of Vata in their mind-body constitution have a tendency towards these attributes. These people are generally thin, light, and active, both physically and mentally. They tend to move quickly and are changeable. They generally welcome new experiences and are talkative. These are the people whose habits, interests, and daily routines change considerably from week to week. Their bodily functions also have an aspect of irregularity about them. Their appetites and moods are often inconsistent.

Pitta is responsible for all types of digestion. Within the body, the fire principle metabolizes our experiences so we can absorb that which is nourishing and eliminate that which isn’t. The attributes of Pitta are what you might predict—hot, light, intense, penetrating, spicy, sharp, and acidic. Individuals with a lot of Pitta in their mind-body constitution display these attributes mentally as well as physically. They tend to be intellectually sharp, with discriminating minds that enjoy delving into the underlying causes of things. They’re often good leaders, visionaries, and speakers. Physically, they have a hearty appetite and good digestion. They tend to be warm, even in cooler environments. They often have a strong appetite for knowledge, luxury, and worldly recognition.

Kapha is responsible for structure, protection, and lubrication within the body and mind. People with a preponderance of Kapha are generally sturdy and consistent. The attributes of earth are heavy, cold, solid, stable, wet, smooth, and slow. These attributes manifest themselves in individuals who have a lot of Kapha in their mind-body constitution. Physically, they tend to be heavyset and stocky with great strength and endurance. They’re generally process-oriented and are slow to anger or respond to provocation. Their skin is usually moist, youthful, and beautiful. The heaviness of Kapha means that these types have a tendency to retain excess weight.

 At a very basic level Emotions are physical sensations associated with mental thoughts.

The quality of you emotions influences the health of your body and and in Ayurveda your emotions are a fundamental pillar of health.

Emotions are your internal guidance system .


The 4 A’s of emotional wellbeing.

1)Attention- To be heard and understood

2) Affection-To be loved and cared for.

3) Appreciation-To be noticed for our special and unique qualities .

4) Acceptance-To be accepted


The seven Biological responses to unmet needs are.

Flight -flight -freeze 

An instinctual stress resonse putting the body on high alert .


Behaving in a way that attempts to control, manipulate or coerce someone else into getting what you want.

Restful awareness

Meditation , key to unlocking the more expanded levels of emotional responses- the nervous system’s experience of deep peace , stillness and going within.


When your insight and understanding come from within as opposed to the external world .


Creative response

Applying a new context or meaning to a situation or circumstance .

 The Visionary response

The visionary response reflects our connection with Archetypes. We all have the potentials to be Gods and Goddesses.

The great leaders and figures in history have recognised and given their lives a vision. We can all access these psychological potentials within us to create new narratives in our lives.

 Sacred response

Our biology is one of calmness and stillness in whatever we experience because we identify at all times with our ground state -pure  consciousness.


The vast majority of human beings use only the first two responses on a daily basis . However human beings have been given the incredible gift of choice and free will. While our responses to unmet needs can be automatic and based on instinct to survive , through regular meditation practices we have the ability to shift our ego based internal reference point to a soul based one.
