Everyone responds to stress and frustration differently; however, you likely react to triggers in a similar way every time. In Ayurveda, your unique patterning is a combination of three qualities, or emotional body types, called the maha gunas. When they tip out of harmony, they can lock you into behavioral cycle that can seem impossible to elude. Here, John Douillard and Larissa Hall Carlson, who co-teach our upcoming course Ayurveda 201, which dives into how to use this psychology to unknot unhelpful and unhealthy habits, share the three gunas and a surprising tip to begin beating stress and finding balance.
