course information


Bali Raw Chef Trainings!

Receive easily applicable nutritional information with a wide-open view of raw & plant-based nutrition from a modern scientific and a traditional Eastern perspective. Gain not only certification but also the full confidence to apply and integrate your knowledge into your daily life and the full enthusiasm to share your passion with the world.

True understanding comes from experience. Our Bali Raw Food Chef Trainings are immersions into a vibrant raw-living food lifestyle. Whether you are searching for a new beginning or purpose to your life, wanting to shift old paradigms and beliefs, simply seeking more nutritional confidence and hands-on skills, or wanting to open your own health food shop or raw food café, our courses are for you! 

At fully equipped workstations you will work in teams to replicate and re-create our Sayuri Healing Food recipes, magic and techniques. You will attend lectures, go on field trips and spend quality time with an inspiring group of people from all over the world. Each course culminates in a final project in which you will apply all your freshly acquired skills and knowledge and develop your own raw creations. Students receive a Sayuri Healing Food Academy certificate.

Through the experience we will share, we will re-connect ourselves to nature to restore and reinforce our health &  find our individual paths to a sustainable, radiant and healthy lifestyle!

Dis-ease, is simply dis-harmony from nature. If we align ourselves with the universal energy, our body, mind & spirit will function perfectly, just the way they were designed to. We firmly believe that “what we eat” is one of the easiest ways to access that alignment.

Why do we eat? What is food? What are we made of? If we give off or even are energy & vibration, why don’t we eat light & higher vibration? These are some of the many questions we will examine throughout the training.

Our passion is to share, teach & remind ourselves that we all are fountains of potential. You can do anything you want & you can become anything you want to become. Food is our tool to discover that. For some people, it is painting,  singing,  playing music, or mediation. We will learn tools to help you discover your true purpose, your dharma, for yourself and all living beings. All this is possible from the simple act of eating!

From Sayuri’s experience, raw-living cuisine is all about playing with flavour, texture & colour! Preparing living food is by far one of the most beautiful works/acts that you can contribute to yourself and to the world. Your life becomes a full spectrum of colours, fruits & flowers, full of joy & excitement, of vibrations through veggies & plants, full of appreciation & gratitude for being nourished by nourishing others, and by becoming the bridge between them & mother earth. We will share all our tips to create fun and vibrant raw dishes whether you want to recreate your old traditional dishes or create a totally new contemporary extravaganza. We guarantee you will end up being amazed at how amazing you are!
