The Ayurvedic calendar consists of three seasons each of which is related to the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The Vata season starts from late fall to summer (October to February), the Pitta season lasts between mid-summer and early fall (July to October) and the Kapha season stretches between spring to early summer ( March to June). It is believed that during the transition of these seasons, the body undergoes a lot of changes depending on the imbalances in the system.
