Each of the 3 Doshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in our body, have five sub-doshas. Each of these sub-doshas have their own energetic and physical responsibilities within the body. These sub doshas can also go out of balance like Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas.

Sadhaka Pitta is a sub-dosha of Pitta Dosha. Sadhaka Pitta has a very special and important role in our body. Sadhaka Pitta governs mental energy, creativity, beliefs, emotions. It is also responsible for motivation, self-confidence and a feeling of fulfillment. When Sadhaka Pitta is out of balance we may be prone to mood swings, anger and irritability we can be critical intolerant, can get easily hurt and suffer from low self-esteem, feeling of hopelessness which can lead to despair and depression. Sadhaka pitta’s most important function is to connect the heart and mind so that they can work in conjunction.
Prana Vata is a sub-dosha of Vata Dosha. It is commonly known as the ‘life force’ within our body. It governs the brain, head, chest, respiration, mind etc. The main purpose of prana vata is to regulate the workings of the nervous system. Making a person more responsive to touch and sexual pleasure.
When these two doshas work in conjunction it helps revitalize the mind and body and makes you and your partner more sexually active.
