Dr. Robert E. Svoboda is the first Westerner ever to graduate from a college of Ayurveda and be licensed to practice Ayurveda in India. During and after his formal Ayurvedic training, he was tutored in Ayurveda, yoga, Jyotish, Tantra, and other forms of classical Indian lore by his mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda.
He is author of 12 books, including Prakriti: Your Ayurvedic Constitution.
Dr. Svoboda lived in India from 1973-80 and 1982-86, receiving his Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery from the University of Poona in 1980. In his final year of study at the Tilak Ayurved Mahavidyalay, he won all but one of the university’s awards for academic excellence in Ayurveda. He later served as adjunct faculty at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington.
Since 1986, Dr. Svoboda has traveled extensively, and is sought-after throughout the world as a speaker on Ayurveda, Jyotish, Tantra, and allied subjects.
