This course is made up of 2 hour online classes on Thursdays, with some Saturdays and Sundays. In addition there are practical projects between classes. The advantage of 2 hour classes is that each class is short enough for full attention and focus. By having classes 1 to 3 classes a week you will easily remember what you learnt, from one class to the next. Allow about 2 hours a week for reading, practice and projects.

Most students find they are naturally eating macrobiotic foods, meditating, thinking more positively and taking exercise as the course progresses.

You will complete the whole course within a year, this being a reasonable commitment for your macrobiotic training.

Each training session is recorded, so if you miss a class you can catch up. The course includes 4 private tutorials and you may ask questions between classes.
