Find Your Dosha
How to use this questionnaire:
Complete this questionnaire two times.
- The first time, complete this questionnaire with how you would describe your ‘current’ physical, mental and emotional state in mind. This will give a good indication of which Doshas are predominant for you right now, known in Ayurveda as your ‘Vikriti’.
The second time, complete this questionnaire with what your physical, mental and emotional nature was growing up as a child. This will give a good indication of your innate constitution from birth, known in Ayurveda as your ‘Prakriti’.
A note: Dosha questionnaires like this are a useful guide only, and not necessarily 100% accurate. The best way to find out what your unique Doshic makeup is, is to consult an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner. Through completing this questionnaire you will however gain an understanding of the elements most predominant inside your body, your unique nature and can use this knowledge and understanding to start making choices in food and lifestyle that will support your optimum nourishment and balance. It’s wonderful to gain new insight and awareness of which elements out of the 5 elements; air, ether, fire, water and earth you have more predominance of within you, so you can remember to keep those elements in balance for optimal physical, mental and emotional harmony, alignment and balance. Enjoy!
