Doshas are the bioenergetic systems of the body and vata is one of three doshas which make up the human system: vata controls movement, pitta governs metabolism, and kapha governs tissue, bones and lubrication of the body. Of course, it is actually not that compartmentalized because all the doshas are interdependent and interact with each other. When you eat, vata moves the food to the digestive system, lubricated by kapha, where pitta will do the digestion.
