Ayurveda views the world (our bodies, thoughts, feelings, emotions, nature… the universe) as made up of a combination of five primary elements: earth, air, fire, water and space (sometimes called Akasha).
Each of us has a different mix of these elements within us – some more than others. The ones which appear most dominant in our Self make up our “dosha”. A dosha simply represents the elements that are most likely to become unbalanced, as they already exist in excess, even in one’s natural state.
Ayurveda operates on the principle of like increasing like. Food, drink, exercise, breathing, as well as lifestyle affect all the elements within. So, if you have more air and space (vata) in your personal make up, the time of year when those elements are elevated in your external environment (autumn and early winter) poses a particular challenge.
The other doshas include pitta (fire + water) and also kapha (earth + water). Pitta corresponds to the summer, whereas kapha is elevated in late winter/spring.
