Course Overview

The 2018/2019 Macrobiotic Health Coach Course is a unique programme focused on providing a learning experience for men and women who want to contribute to a healthy world. The course is designed to prepare the participants to help themselves and others to achieve personal health goals.

This is a rare opportunity to study with teachers who are expert consultants and draw on decades of practical experience. Macrobiotic philosophy serves as the foundation of these studies and provides the link between the disciplines and life skills we will explore together.  This course also offers additional tools to enhance professional or Para-professional skills in both the orthodox or complementary health and healing arts.


Course Contents

The course will be useful to those students who want to deepen their study of natural health care and macrobiotics as well as those who wish to utilise the training as an addition to their professional services such as fitness coaching, yoga teaching, vegan coaching, business coaching or any practice of alternative health care.
