SPORTS, EXERCISE AND FITNESS
Though regular exercise is essential for maintaining good health, the amount Ayurveda would recommend you do will vary according to which Dosha predominates in your physiology. Vata types need less exercise, Pitta types need moderate amounts and Kapha types need more intense exercise.
Whatever your Ayurvedic body-type, supporting your body tissues and maintaining good energy and vigour is an essential part of any fitness plan, especially for those involved in sports.
