Dosha, also known as "the inherent intelligence of the body", is our natural constitution or individual "make-up".

In Ayurveda, there are three distinct Doshas- Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each individual has a specific Dosha type or can be a combination of two and sometimes have characteristics of all three. Doshas impact all the functions of the body influencing our appearance, our metabolic functioning and overall wellbeing.

For ayurvedic patients, identifying your Dosha is the first step in determining your path for treatment. To get started, please visit the ZenSpot Institute and take the "Identify Your Dosha" quiz.
