So when you come to this world as a unique person, you cannot fit inside a crowd and just eat sleep like everyone else. If you are doing so, you never realized your full potential.

Now if you want to know about the body type and understand their general characteristics, read further. When you know the body type, you understand where your core strength  and your weakness are. The man who knows well about his body, knows to control it and use that as his ship to the success pathway. 

Vata Body type

The people who are thin, light and have a bony structure. When you see a Vata you know it, because you would feel like we can blow them away by a wind. They dash from one place to another at lightning speed. These people have a high level of energy that keeps coming out. They can burn themselves to light up any chimney you give them. 


Body type of Vata is light in the frame with thin skin. Here are a few ways to spot a Vata body type of person.

1.Rough, thin and dry skin.

2.Lustrous eyes, but little sunken inside. 

3.Cold hands and feet.

 4.Can never stand or sit idle doing nothing. 

5.They wake up even to light noises. 

There are still many more physical references for a Vata body type. These are few physique features that are visible. 


By default Vata body type people will have so much energy. They can’t keep their mind calm. Very spontaneous in discussing ideas. Their mind keeps whirling. If you are a Vata body type person, focusing on one thing at a time is very hard for you. You will have some kind of insomnia problem because of the inability to calm your mind. 

Advantages of having a Vata Body type

1.Creative people can come up with unique, crazy solutions for problems. 

2.They can have high energy when compared to other body type people. 

3.When they set their mind into anything they will achieve it

One of the body type people who leaves an exceptional remark by their presence. An individual with a competitive spirit, organized and prudent with money. They have clear, radiant skin and silky hair. You can see them getting hungry even after having a great meal. It is common for them to face acidity problems.

Ruddy skin and prone to rashes

They have brown eyeballs with a clear glare

Their hair is silky but they face premature gray and hair fall 

Impatient and gets annoyed.

Good organizer with healthy competitive spirit

These are few easy ways to identify a Pitta body type woman or man in a crowd. 


As they are good organizers by nature, they have a high focus in their mind. You can’t distract them. But beware since they are often irritable, Pitta body type people are good in managing things, handling money and structuring frameworks. They are great managers because of their ability to assemble things.  Personally in spite of their temper, I see them as a good person to rely on. 

Advantages of Pitta body type 

Since they have a competitive spirit, they have a constant growth in their life. 

Their eyes and glare makes them look attractive. 

The life skills such as handling money, sorting out things and having an organized approach makes them born leaders by nature. 

Biggest Drawback 

Impatient and gets angry

Find hard to accept solutions from others.

Faces acidity problem because of the excessive heat in their body 

Secret Mantra for your success

Your food habit will influence your mind. Try eating foods that take time to digest. Include complex carbohydrates in your diet. 

Have a physical activity in your life. You don’t have to like sweat but you could do bit of exercise daily morning before starting your day 

The improvement in your digestion and acidity problems will reduce your impatience, irritability and temper.

Kapha Body type 

The Kapha body type people are overweight, they have rigid muscular, very broad shoulders and bright skin. They are strong-built in nature, can eat & sleep well. They are bloated, slow, calm and composed. You will find them lazy. 


Kapha body type people are full of fun and everybody loves them. You can see strong limbs and white teeth.

Bright skin that feels like porcelain 

They have big beautiful eyes and a well-shaped mouth 

Calm mind with collective inner peace. 

Big frame, they are the exact opposite of the Vata body frame.

You will never miss a Kapha when you see them. It is easy to get confused between Pitta and Vata, but a Kapha is always noticeable because of their giant body.


The saints of all. A Kapha body type person can never get agitated at all. You will see them as the modern monks. They have so much patience in everything they handle. They are steady in their mind. You will see a Kapha accepting things in the way they are. They are never curious. Kapha body type people live with a flow. 

Advantages of Kapha Body Type

They can decide and hold it. 

Ability to remain calm even in the worst scenarios.

They keep what they have learnt and remember them always. 

Biggest Drawback 

The peaceful mind turns into a downside because they strike as a slow person with a careless attitude. 

Very slow by nature. If a Vata or Pitta takes 15 mins to eat, then Kapha will take like 45 mins to consume the same food. 

Excess weight makes them to move around slow 

Lethargic attitude

Secret Mantra for Kapha Body type 

Physical exertion is a must. Kapha body type people must sweat and immerse in the sweat. They need to focus on shedding down their weight 

 Their calm mind is crucial for their growth, but to forge some speed into it, they can add pungent taste into their diet. Adding up spicy foods also helps.
