San Diego Kapha Ayurveda

The basic principles of Ayurveda include balancing the three basic Dosha Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each Dosh is made of two of the five elements of nature.

Kapha (water) body types tend to be of larger proportions, with a robust frame, well-padded joints, thick smooth skin that may tend towards oiliness, and rich, wavy hair. They are made up of two elements water and earth. Kapha is known for accumulation. Stable and calm in thought, speech, and action, makes them easy-going and supportive in relationships. There is an element of steadiness to their step, a quality of serenity in their smile. They tend to be long and heavy sleepers, with slow metabolisims, making them susceptible to obesity. They are uncomfortable in damp, clammy environments. Calm and sweetness of disposition are hallmarks of balanced Kapha.

Unbalanced Kapha can have difficulty with weight gain, slow digestion, motivation, and attachment.
