Ayurveda: KAPHA-Type

KAPHA-Type people tend to have sturdy, heavy frames, providing a good reserve of physical strength and stamina. This strength gives Kaphas a natural resistance to disease and a generally positive outlook about life. Kaphas tend to have thick, dark hair, and big eyes & lips. Kapha celebrities include George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, and Jennifer Lopez.

The Kapha Dosha is slow, and Kapha Types tend to be slow eaters with slow digestion. They also speak slowly. They are calm and affectionate but, when out of balance, can become stubborn and lazy. They learn slowly, with a methodical approach, but also retain information well with a good understanding of it.

Kapha Dosha controls the moist tissues of the body, so a Kapha imbalance may show up as a cold, allergies, or asthma.
Kapha Types need to progress to stay in balance. They should not dwell in the past or resist change. They need lots of exercise and need to be careful not to overeat. Kaphas need stimulation to bring out their vitality. Kapha dosha teaches us steadiness and a sense of well-being.
