Dr. Abhishek Joshi, BAMS, MD, PhD
Dr. Abhishek Joshi was born and raised in an Indian family where Ayurveda was practiced daily. Born in a place that is much revered as a holy and spiritual place, "Somnath" in the western part of India, he had imbibed powerful spiritual vibes right from his childhood. The practice of yoga and meditation was instilled at a tender age in his life by his mother, a yoga teacher at the local school in India. She used to manage minor ailments at home with kitchen herbs which sowed the seeds and inspired Dr. Joshi to further dive deeper into the scientific exploration of the holistic sciences.
These beginnings inspired him to pursue a degree in Ayurveda School in India (Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery – B.A.M.S. – 5½ years duration). His zeal for science continued, and he further did his post-graduation (M.D. – 3 years duration) in Ayurveda. He was the topper in his university with a distinction for his master's degree. He went a step further by embracing and internalizing the knowledge of Ayurveda by pursuing his Ph.D. in Ayurveda at the most prestigious institute of Ayurveda in India, Institute for Post Graduate Teaching and Research in Ayurveda (I.P.G.T. & R.A.), Gujarat Ayurveda University (G.A.U.), India. He was a doctorate in Ayurveda at the young age of 29 years.
His keen interest in yoga and meditation was also very much alive, and he became a skilled Meditation & Yoga teacher at the age of 26. He also impacts the lives of millions of people globally, across many countries, with his collaboration with the Art of Living Foundation.
He practiced and taught Ayurveda and yoga at a traditional Ayurveda hospital in Kerala, India, for a year when he got a call from his university vice-chancellor to take up the task of spreading Ayurveda to other parts of the world. He was appointed as Chair of Ayurveda at the young age of 31 years at a 53 years old university in Bali, Indonesia.
He has presented Ayurveda at many national and international seminars, with his research published in several papers and journals.
He is a perfect combination of authentic knowledge and practical wisdom of Ayurveda and yoga. He consults his patients with traditional Ayurveda principles and a modern scientific approach.
He guides his clients with diet and lifestyle changes, pranayama, meditations, and therapeutic yoga. He also prescribes Ayurveda herbal medicines and Ayurveda treatments if required. All are aimed at the physical and psychological well-being of the patient. His passion for helping people, straightforward approach, gentle nature, dedication to holistic practices, and Ayurveda medicines makes him well-respected among his students and patients.
