what’s my dosha?

Take this fun quiz and check mark the answers that apply to you. If two points for the same category apply you can check mark both. Add the totals for each dosha of Vata, Pitta, Kapha at the end to find out your Dosha type.

You might have a single dominant Dosha, be a combination of two (bi-doshic) or have all three Doshas equally balanced (tri-doshic).
