Relationships are tough. One of the reasons I love Ayurveda so much is due to the fact that you can apply it in all areas of your life – including in your relationships. This topic came up most recently in our Yoga Teacher Training course as our students began to dive in deep into the Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and all of their qualities. We discussed how the doshas and their qualities show up in our relationships, and how some doshas are more compatable, and some less so.

We seem to do well with those who will bring more balance rather than those who are most similar to us.  That is true in so many areas of our lives, but especially in our relationships. Our friends at Maharishi Ayurveda say it best, “Relationships can be challenging — there’s no arguing that one. From minor disagreements to seemingly insurmountable differences, keeping a partnership happy, healthy and mutually fulfilling takes commitment and work, but it’s certainly possible. Knowing your partner’s predominant dosha(s) and tendencies can help take much of the mystery (and dare I say frustration?) out of relationship woes. Knowledge allows for insight, and insight for patience and compassion.” Read the full article on Relationships from an Ayurvedic Perspective on
