A comprehensive five-day program

The Women's Health and Vitality Program offers a dynamic approach to women's health and beauty from a traditional macrobiotic and contemporary holistic perspective. Modern science and medicine are increasingly documenting the importance of a balanced diet centered on whole foods and living in harmony with nature as the keys to health, happiness and longevity.

This program is designed to make women aware of the tremendous benefits that a macrobiotic way of life can offer for preventing and relieving diseases and awakening their own healing abilities.

Before arriving for this study week, we will send you a list of subjects, from which you can mark your interests.

The classes are than “tailor made” to your personal questions and concern.

Questions and Answers


Many women have already successfully overcome similar problems and developed confidence in knowing that they can enhance and maintain their health naturally. They have become conscious of the choices available to them, and they have taken responsibility for the future health and happiness of themselves and their families, contributing to self-realization and fulfillment at many levels.

These days, modern women seem to be more free because of the industrialization of the food industry, but the price they pay for consuming this diet is a loss of control of their own health and the health of their families. Fast food is a fast ticket to medicalization.

For a fresh new start, join these magic study days. Through the classes and workshops, eating together and getting to know one another, you will gain a wealth of practical information and insight that you can immediately begin to apply at home

Do-in early morning exercises

To start the day fresh and energetic you might like to attend the early morning program, before breakfast.



This program will be devoted to a clear, practical explanation of the Macrobiotic way of life and food patterns, with an accent on your own personal experiences and health questions. There will be time for questions and answers for subjects such as relationships, family and career. Some exercises will be given to release stress.


Cooking classes

These sessions will include time for your personal questions on health and beauty.
