Kapha Profile

"Stimulation and variety is the key for you..."

Kapha is the slow and steady dosha that governs structure and lubrication in the mind and body. It controls weight and growth, the lubrication for the joints and lungs and the formation of all the seven tissues - nutritive fluids, blood, fat, muscles, bones, marrow and reproductive organs.

Kapha Governs

  • Structure and cohesion, fluid balance, muscle, fat, bone and sinew. Including:
  • Moisture for nose, mouth, eyes and brain
  • Sense of taste, which is essential for good digestion
  • Moisture of the stomach lining for good digestion
  • The heart, strong muscles and healthy lungs
  • Lubrication of the joints and soft and supple skin.


Each dosha has underlying primordial elements. For Kapha these are Earth and Water.


Each dosha has certain qualities. For Kapha these are heavy, solid, cold, unctuous, soft, sweet, steady, moist and slow by nature.
