Dr. Rama Prasad was born in a Kerala village in south India.
His father was a Sanskrit scholar from a long lineage. Traditionally his family duty is to look after the local Vishnu-Shiva temple, make garlands for the deities and help the priest with all his temple duties.
Rama studied Ayurveda and Yoga for 8 years from the Bharathiyar university, in a gurukula style. He did private internship with some of Keralas leading Ayurvedic gurus after his formal studies. He learnt Sanskrit from his father and various other teachers at school and university. He also has studied hypnotherapy and mind-body counseling in Australia.
For the past 20 years he has been practicing Ayurveda internationally. He runs courses and consultations in most large cities in Australia. He was the keynote presenter at various international Ayurveda and Yoga conferences including the 2006 one at Madras, India along with Dr Chopra and Dr Svoboda. He has been part of organising 4 international conferences in Sydney and India over the past 10 years.
Rama uses Ayurvedic and Yogic wisdom that he gained from university and his village in his clinic. He has identified over 2,000 Ayurvedic herbs that are native to Australia. His future plan includes health villages in Australia and India. His passionate classes are fun-filled, simple and clear. He believes ‘the more you give, the more you learn’. Rama still makes garlands for the temple deities during his yearly Kerala visits along with his mother and sisters.
