Fall Correspondences in Ayurveda

The autumn season corresponds to the Kapha dosha in Ayurveda. This dosha is associated with stability, heaviness and moisture. As a result, this season can be a time of increased weight gain and lethargy. The Kapha dosha is also associated with the mind and emotions, so it can be a time for emotional eating or feeling sad or depressed.

To keep your Kapha dosha in balance during this season, try these tips:

  • Eat foods that are light but nutritious such as fruits, vegetables and legumes.
  • Avoid heavy meals such as meat or fried food.
  • Practice yoga to help you feel lighter on your feet and release tension from your muscles.
  • Take a brisk walk outside to get some fresh air and enjoy the changing leaves! 

Food and Clothing

Kapha dosha is the energy that governs the earth and water elements in our bodies. Kapha dosha people are usually calm, relaxed, and stable but they can also be lazy, slow, and lethargic. Curious about your Dosha? Read more here.

The foods for kapha dosha are:

  • Sweet fruits like bananas, oranges, pineapple
  • Citrus fruits like grapefruit and oranges
  • Vegetables like broccoli and cabbage
  • Oils like coconut and palm oil
  • Sweet foods like honey, molasses, and maple syrup

The best clothing for the autumn/fall season are clothes that are lightweight but still warm. They should also be breathable so that you do not overheat during the day. Some examples include: wool sweaters, light jackets, turtleneck sweaters or shirts, and long-sleeved shirts or sweaters.
