Christy Turlington is known as the "Calvin Klein" model working with them for 20 years! She is one of the top models of her time but has alot of interests outside of her everyday world. According to Psychology Today "Turlington finds much of her strength in yoga, meditation and Ayurveda, an ancient holistic science from India. Many of the Ayurvedic principles are based on discovering your balance as an individual. The philosophy holds that every person is a hybrid of the three elements called doshas (vata, pitta and kapha). Understanding your unique combination can help you choose how to exercise and what to eat. Finding the flexibility and balance that is required for good mental health is a challenge we all face.
Some Q&A from the article:
How have you adjusted your life according to Ayurveda?

What is your dosha, and how does it reflect who you are?
I am a vata/pitta, which means that my constitution is generally pitta, hard-working, a leader, but I also have a vata imbalance, which is revealed in my skin type. I have dry skin and a small bone structure, a lot of creative energy and I speak very quickly.

We all have all three doshas and all five elements of nature in each of us in varying degrees, which makes each of us an individual.
