A tool for balance
To be able to see what makes you tick, how you work, what you look like and whether you are balanced or not can help both you and your surroundings. In Ayurveda they describe, among other things the capacities, the doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha. In balance, for example, Vata can be creative, Pitta focused and Kapha caring, but with an imbalance Vata can be stressed, Pitta irritated and Kapha depressed. We all have little of everything, but usually there is one or two that dominates, and makes you you. Sometimes we gain more of one or more of these energies and it is then described as an imbalance.
