What鈥檚 the newest celebrity trend? Ayurveda! Well, to be fair, we can鈥檛 exactly call it new. It鈥檚 been around for about 5,000 years and is a Hindu traditional medicine. Hardcore yogis have been practicing it for a long time, but since a lot of us learned about it courtesy of Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow, it鈥檚 new to us. If it鈥檚 new to you as well, here鈥檚 a crash course in the very, very basics.

The word Ayurveda breaks down to 鈥渢he science of life.鈥 Ayur means 鈥渟cience,鈥 and veda means 鈥渓ife.鈥 When the two are combined, what you get is an inclusive, holistic system for mental, physical and spiritual health. To get started, you鈥檒l first have to find your type, aka dosha. You鈥檙e one of three things: Pitta, Vata or Kapha. Read on to discover which you might be.

Vata: Translates to 鈥渨ind鈥 and represents a more energetic and sometimes anxious type of person. Think of someone who always needs to stay busy and can jump from topic to topic without breaking a sweat. Physically this dosha is more delicate and statuesque. To us, this dosha screams Gwyneth 鈥 delicate, energetic, always busy. Yup, that鈥檚 a Gwyneth. (Photo via Theo Wargo / Getty Images)

Pitta: The word itself means 鈥渇ire鈥 and is characterized by a more intellectual and motivated type. Physically this type is strong, athletic and energetic, but focused. We think Jennifer Aniston on this one, because just look at those shoulders. (Photo via Jag Gundu / Getty Images)


Kapha: Kapha means 鈥渆arth.鈥 This dosha is the laid back, warm and the good listener of the bunch. Physically they tend to have beautiful clear skin, bright eyes and a more hourglass shape. Is it just us, or does Jennifer Lopez seem like she might be a really good listener? We can鈥檛 forget her flawless skin either. (Photo via Pascal Le Segretain / Getty)
