Benard Bennett obtained a BA in International Studies. During his lifetime of experience, he studied Ayurveda, Macrobiotics and Yoga for over 10 years gaining hundreds of hours of real practice cooking, preparing and mixing modalities coming to a conclusion that herbs, food and lifestyle are the true balancers of life. He worked at Whole Foods and Casa de luz and volunteered for Austin Harm Reduction Coalition and Pure Yoga Austin.
His interest in Ayurveda began with Yoga. He took a weekend course over Ayurveda and Yoga in Austin at YogaYoga from Felecia Tomasko. There he learned about srotasmi and the intricate systems of Ayurveda. As an aspiring practitioner, a person must learn to balance themselves. Traveling throughout India for 6 months at a time over 3 years from 2017-2019 afforded him many experiences with Panchakarma doctors in Gokarna to Pediatrician doctors at an Ayurvedic Hospital in Kolkata. The most fulfilling learning experience was in Pachmari, where he sat in during a vaidyas consultation, observed his formulations of chayawanprash through open air vessels and visited his roof to see the drying and wildcrafting of herbs for 3 weeks.
He met Khabir at his Ayurvedic training course taught in Rishikesh, India. He completed Fundamental Principles & Physiology Level 1 , Diagnosis Methods Level 2 and Herbology & Dietary Treatments course for 450 hours and 3 month intern/apprenticeship with Khabir at his clinic for over 1000 hours. During his India course, the owner of Ayurpak taught 2-3 classes a week going over dishes like kitchari and kheer. With his oversight and my willingness to follow ancient texts, I made ghritams and tailams with the utmost therapeutic efficacy. Sahasrayogaram is a reference that humbles any practitione
