Yoga - Ask Yogi Marlon

  What's My Dosha?
To take the quiz, check off the answers that most closely apply to you. If none of the answers seem to apply, it may be helpful to think of what you experience when you are not feeling your best, even if that is rare. When you have answered all the questions, you'll need to add up the number of checks in each column. The column with the most number of checks may very well be your primary dosha. Also note the secondary dosha indicated.
