According to the Tridosha theory of Ayurveda, three energies circulate throughout our being & govern our physical, mental & emotional characteristics. These energies are called Doshas. The five elements - Ether, Air, Fire, Water & Earth - bind together to form the concept of Doshas: Vata, Pitta & Kapha.
Vata = Blend of Ether + Air
Pitta = Blend of Fire + Water
Kapha = Blend of Water + Earth
When there is balance among these three doshas, you will experience equanimity & an incredible level of 'aliveness' & health. Imbalances can lead to dis-ease.
Elements: Fire + Water
