What our students say

Absolutely amazing! Life-changing experience! I joined this training simply because I love dessert and was searching for an alternative to my sweet cravings. I did not expect that I would want to become a chef at all but I must say I am considering now starting my small business to spread this yumminess and happiness to the world!
I did not even know that you could make such a delicious dessert without animal products, wheat, and white sugar! I also did not know that those desserts make us uplifted, motivated, and happier! This course was beyond my expectations!
Sayuri is so knowledgeable, and I can feel her pure passion for healthy food and she is living this lifestyle. Learning from someone who leads a healthy lifestyle and who is the owner of the most successful vegan/raw restaurant, there is so much you can take in from her teaching!
Highly recommended!

“Dis-ease, is simply dis-harmony from nature. Working with plants and veggies bring us back into alignment. If we align ourselves with the universal energy, our body, mind & spirit 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.”
