Dr. Rohit R. Borkar was born in Goa and completed his bachelors degree in Ayurveda at Goa University. After completing a five and a half year long course at Gomantak Ayurveda College, he was awarded his Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery (B.A.M.S.) degree. He has also completed a yoga course at The Yoga Institute's Academy of Yoga, a special department for teacher training at Santa Cruz, Mumbai. He currently works in Goa as an ayurvedic physician, panchakarma and yoga specialist, with over a decade of experience in these areas. During this time he has traveled extensively around India and Europe, studying, lecturing and conducting workshops on ayurveda, yoga and allied subjects.
It is said:“Studying a single scripture does not give one the conclusive essence of the science. Hence a person should try to understand the scripture after having studied several disciplines”. This inspired Dr. Rohit to learn yogic science with a keen interest that he now applies to his investigations into how yoga can be implented alongside Ayurveda. You can find out more about Rohit from his website http://www.ayurvedagoa.org. He says: “Ayurveda, the science of life, is a boon to the science of healing and to seekers of health, rejuvenation, longevity and well-being”.
