5 Ways to DiVE into your Personality TRAITS through Ayurveda

Ayurveda (pronounced: aa-you-r-way-duh!) – the ancient Indian ‘science of life’ and sister science to Yoga that is 5000 years old – unveils the secret of Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) to help you land a deeper understanding of your personality and actions, through your body type and more! This holistic science is not just for discovering your true nature and balance but also offers powerful methods of herbology, to serve the realms of wellness and beauty, optimum health, and fully natural lifestyle practices.

Ever wondered why you do the things you do, and why these actions feel unique to your personality? Do you feel highly impassioned, your brain paces ahead of your thoughts, teeming with ideas? Or are you more of a focused, consistent personality with a steady pace of thinking and doing things? A combination of all these traits, perhaps? Obviously, the western world has an approach to all this. But when it comes to investigating these behaviors through a much more holistic mapping of your being... If you are a wee bit curious about yourself and want to embark on a journey of
exploration of Self, we recommend you wear the lenses of Ayurveda, and hang around! 

1. Understand the five elements in nature that all of us are comprised of


Akasha (Space):

Also known as Ether, it is one of the most profound elements of our universe. It signifies not the presence of something, but it is the absence of qualities that form the basis of Ether. This element is cold, light, subtle, unmoving, not because it carries these traits, but because it lacks warmth, heaviness, solidity, mobility caused by the other elements!


Vayu (Air):

You know how we sometimes want to ‘give air to an idea’, or ‘give air to an opinion’? This is what the element of Air teaches us – providing mobility caused by expression and moving things forward. Air is nothing but an evolved form of Ether, which alters its nature through the synergy of the two. The key traits of Vayu are sharpness, grace, coolness, subtlety, dryness, and lightness.


Agni (Fire):

Fire is a powerful element that is born out of Space and Air. It relates to the pursuit of perceptive thought, as its main characteristics resemble heat and light. Light gives form to color and texture, and entwines this element deeply with the gift of sight, resulting in excellent perception. Other major qualities of Fire are hotness, dryness, softness, intensity, and flexibility. 


Jala (Water):

If one of your core elements is Water, then you must be feeling a certain fluidity in your personality that helps you sail through smoothly and elegantly in life. Among its many duties, water is, first and foremost, a protector. It counters the emptiness of Space, the dryness of air, and the hotness of fire for a harmonious existence. Water, when present in adequacy brings about stability, coolness, focus, softness, and peace.


Prithvi (Earth):

Finally, Earth – the heaviest of the five elements, holding everything from space to water in its cradle – completes the pentagon. It signifies the structure and abundance in one’s psychological as well as physiological frame. Along with those, Earth is a carrier of stark presence of smells that can cause a person to have vivid odors. People with a large portion of Earth in them show signs of rigidity, density, clarity, coolness, and resilience. 

2. Ties between Elements and Doshas

Now that you have a basic awareness of the five elements, or the mahabhutas of Ayurveda, let’s talk about the identification process of your traits through Doshas.

The first thing to know here is that all of us are made of the combination of these doshas – Vata, Pitta, Kapha – BUT each one of us has a distinct balance of these doshas, so no two of us are ever alike!

While it can be puzzling to read these foreign terms for the first time, once studied and grasped, this knowledge can transform every aspect of your life in unimaginable ways!

Doshas not only teach you about your individual actions in life, but it also pours an abundant amount of insight into the functioning of your relationships, body type, features, what foods to eat, a tailored exercise regime and more.  

3. Analyze your body type

Body type is imperative in the recognition of the Doshas. Vata type typically has a slim body frame with visible veins and a narrow bone structure. Pitta body type is athletic, medium built, and flaunts a muscular look. Kapha tends to represent a sturdier, curvier appearance and roundness of the body than other types, which is often susceptible to overweight.

4. Be mindful of the foods you consume

Did you know that a lot of, or should we say, all the food that you consume has a DIRECT impact on your doshas? One of the three doshas, whichever is dominant at that point of time in your personality, can be balanced by your food choices. If we talk in biological terms, then, drawing a holistic balance in your doshas can soothe your metabolic system and smooth out the fine lines in the face of your health. One great example of this problem is the Metabolic Syndrome, that causes many of us to feel older, much, much faster and earlier in life than we deserve!

Want a sneak-peek into different diets suitable for each dosha? Here’s some Thought for Food! 😀

Food advices for Vata Doshas
  • Avoid dry fruits like prunes, raisins, figs, dates
  • Stay away from raw fruits like apples, cranberries, watermelon
  • Cooked apples, soaked prunes and raisins are good for intake
  • In general, food should be warm and cooked; can be sweet, sour, and salty. It should not be raw, cold, or dry.
  • Avoid caffeine as it spikes Vata and causes imbalance.
Food advices for Pitta Doshas
  • Avoid sour fruits like sour apples, kiwi, pineapple and sour foods like vinegar, cream
  • Exclude salted foods like salted butter and cheese, yogurt, buttermilk
  • Choose sweet lime juice instead of vinegar to season vegetables and salads
  • Eat cool or warm foods, but stay away from hot, hard foods, like red meat
  • Avoid coffee and alcohol to fine-tune Pitta dosha
Food advices for Kapha Doshas
  • Choose spicy, astringent, bitter foods like garlic, leafy greens, peppers
  • Prefer warm foods over cool ones such as tofu, eggs, soups, curries
  • Replace sugar with honey to sweeten food and drinks
  • Avoid dairy products, cold, fizzy drinks between meals and fried foods
  • Eat smaller portions and avoid snacking in between meals

5. Recognize the imbalance in Doshas

When one of the three doshas is in excess, it can deviate from its typical virtues and trigger flip side effects.

For instance, if your skin feels extremely oily, or if you’re struggling with maintaining a healthy body weight and exercising is not much help, if you’ve been feeling generally demotivated, Kapha dosha may be overly dominant in your personality.
If you’ve been splurging on the things that you don’t need, purely out of impulse... your Vata inclinations might be piqued!

And for all this knowledge of BALANCE and IMBALANCE that guides us to a truly fulfilling existence, we owe it to Ayurveda! Without it, we as humans would be lost, deprived of a holistic understanding of ourselves which finds the connections that a naked eye can't see. 

It could be tempting to visit tarot card readers and seek what your stars are professing... Or take online personality tests to understand how the universe of your psychology or physiology really works... Or bury yourself under myriad articles to get a better peek at what goes on in the workings of the human vessel.

We have all been there. But is it really that easy to understand ourselves? Or is there, perhaps, a deeper knowledge that goes beyond the reach of the western world? And if yes, then, where does one attain this knowledge?

To answer all these questions and more, in the sincerest way possible, 
The Ayurveda Experience – an online platform for All-Things-Ayurveda was created, to help you collect the secrets of holistic health and complete wellness from the comfort of your home.

The Ayurveda Experience, one of the largest Ayurveda-focused platforms in the US, brought together a team of Ayuveda Experts, Ph.D. scholars, research scientists, and legal experts to provide the highest quality Ayurvedic courses to a modern western audience to solve their problems today, naturally and effectively.

The Ayurveda Experience is a leading platform for digital dissemination of Ayurvedic education at a large, world-wide scale. The first and only platform of its kind, The Ayurveda Experience provides the West curated educational and informational content on Ayurveda that is relevant to Western lives, in today’s times. Ranging from Holistic Nutrition to Autoimmune Conditions, from Mental Health to Digestive Conditions, we present a wide variety of educational courses at affordable prices.

Our courses target each sect of health and wellness with a distinguished, tailored approach. Right from an unadulterated understanding of the concepts to useful, practical and applicable home remedies, with each of the programs you’ll find an array of wisdom and support.

This science has existed for years, but never before was it brought forward in the way The Ayurveda Experience does today.

Some of the biggest mistakes, we make are waiting for a problem to arrive before we become conscious of health and well-being, not going to the roots of the problem, not looking at the complete picture, not viewing health within the complete context of a person’s emotions, spiritual, mental state and environmental/external conditions as well as treating the human being as a 'part' and not a 'whole'. Ayurveda undoes that in the most beautiful way and enables you with more power than ever before!

The best solution is NOT to resort to pills and temporary bandages, but to enter our most naturally balanced state and exude good health with a pacified mind. 

Our Educational Courses do just that - they empower you with the ability to get long-term results yourself, 100% naturally through knowledge on subjects such as:

✔️ Immunity and Aging

✔️ Menstrual and Hormonal Imbalance

✔️ Sexual Wellness

✔️ Psychology and Focus

✔️ Food and Digestion

✔️ Weight Management and Metabolism

✔️ Memory, Attention and the Brain

✔️ Beauty and Rejuvenation

Note that Ayurveda should not be looked upon ONLY as a Problem Solver and Healer but ALSO as a Life Enhancer! If you simply want to take charge of your own health and wellness, there is nothing more profound than Ayurveda. 

The Ayurveda Experience brings the acumen of ancient culture and tradition along with the scientific principles that the science of Ayurveda was based upon, in a unique way.

Our Educational Courses stand out in a world where there is abundance of noise but inadequate value addition. Western medicines take a different road to healthcare and wellness by isolating each issue. Contrary to this, Ayurveda studies the interwoven patterns in the human physiology and psychology and works towards restoring the lost natural balance! And if you are wondering WHAT tools does it use to attain that balance... We say, the power of HERBS, SPICES, HABITS AND LIFESTYLE and many of these internal secrets with intriguing, life-changing benefits. 

Thousands of women and men across the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are totally loving this newly founded (and ironically) ancient wisdom! 

“I have always been interested in Ayurveda, but programs were very expensive or very long. I couldn't find a program I was comfortable investing money into.
By chance, I happened to see an ad for The Ayurveda Experience. Since we're all social distancing, I figured I would need something to keep my mind occupied. I am blown away! The course is very informative, packed with information without being overwhelming! I'm learning a lot better with small videos in the modules than just having huge chunks thrown at me. I can stop & play it as I need & the text companion is beautifully written!
I'm glad I bought this course & I shared it with my friends!”

- Mina 

All our educational courses are tailor-made for women and men who want nothing less than their best selves in every sense of the term!

We care about making Ayurvedic education informative and pragmatic for you.

More words from our Enrollers...

“For Lent (the 40 days leading up to Easter) I decided to follow your diet recommendations completely 100%, no cheating, nothing. I know you’ll be thinking “I told you so” but yeah, I should have just done this from the beginning! My skin has been like 5 million times better, I’ve had 2 periods which have been the most pain-free periods of my life (that tincture you had made is fantastic!) and in general, things are really good. My periods are much closer together than I’d prefer, but the lack of pain makes them much more manageable. I’ve found that my skin becomes most inflamed/rashy/blistery during ovulation and leading up to my period, and as soon as my period comes the rash diminished rapidly (hurrah!). Since Lent began I’ve been so pleased to find that the amount of rash during ovulation is like… barely noticeable at all. Honestly, it’s been life changing.
THANK YOU for everything… and thanks for letting me come to these realizations on my own without forcing me into it!”

- A. Yeates

“I appreciate the information explained in a fashion that allows the non-medically trained layperson to understand the material. Very informative and I highly recommend it!”

- Maria B.

“I want to thank you for the help you gave me in getting healthy. I have been off all pharmaceuticals/drugs for over a year now and am managing my ulcerative colitis purely by your diet, your tinctures, and your lessons that taught me to tune into my body better. I got to KEEP my large intestine, and am able to live at an incredibly stable state for the most part. My GI told me I’d never be healthy and that the large intestine HAD to go. Well, Western medicine failed me but you did not!”
