Vata governs all movement – voluntary and involuntary physical movements as well as thought and mind movements. Imbalance in Vata can cause a fidgety mind and body and is associated with insomnia. Vata-types are “like the wind,” they can’t sit still, and jump from topic to topic quickly. They may also worry or become prone to mood swings, are often cold, tend to be slim and fine-boned, and have variable hunger, but can get cranky or anxious if they forget to eat.
Pitta is associated with heat and keenness of mind. Pitta-types tend to overheat easily and tend towards redness in skin when irritated. They like the best of the best, are very intellectual, prefer details about new topics, and are very results-oriented. Pitta types tend to be of medium build and strong-boned, and can become irritable or prone to angry outburst when stressed.
Kapha’s unique quality is density; they tend to have dense tissue and are heavy-boned and curvy. They gain weight easily, are slow to lose weight, and NEED movement and activity to lose. Kapha personalities are quiet, careful, deep-thinkers, and can be prone to depression. They are intrigued by tradition, are slow to change habits. They benefit from routine but also from excitement, challenge, and getting out more.
