    Exercises for Pitta Body Type

    The Ayurveda Experience September 24, 2015

    Pitta personalities are warriors with a strong sense of competition and a desire to excel. So obviously they love to have activities that require competitive interaction with others. They are happy competing with themselves also by building on their intensity and endurance. They love to use the stopwatch and other parameters for this purpose.

    Pittas are muscular & athletic in their build and they do well in high endurance sports and exercises. But in their pursuit to excel Pitta personalities may overstretch their limits and get angry for not being able to win or achieve their set target. This is an indication to shift to an activity that needs endurance but is non-competitive and calming for the Fire that is in Pitta.

    Exercises recommended for Pitta personalities in a balanced Prakrit state:

    • Baseball
    • Handball
    • Hockey
    • Football
    • Basketball
    • Boxing
    • Rowing
