Leading the field in holistic nutrition for over 20 years.


Welcome to Macroschool

Leading the field in holistic nutrition.

Established over twenty years ago, International Macrobiotic School has provided courses to hundreds of people and trained many people to go on to become professional cooks, health consultants, coaches and bodyworkers. Our graduates in turn, have gone on to help thousands of people improve their lives and health.

Focused on empowering you to create health and happiness using the enriching alchemy of macrobiotics, we use this ancient philosophy in an integrated and holistic way through food, exercise and emotional intelligence.


With us, you can discover the basics with one of our short personal courses, transform your health with our Holistic Nutrition & Cooking Year, or gain professional skills on our Health Coach Year and Macrobiotic Health Consultant Year Courses.

Our School is located in the beautiful Devon countryside amidst the grounds of an 18th century farmhouse. The main house provides a perfect space for learning and accommodation, the garden adds both tranquility and fresh produce whilst the modern, airy, light and spacious teaching kitchen gives you amazing facilities to develop your skills and knowledge.

Over many years, we’ve developed a programme of short courses that work if you want a good introduction to macrobiotic eating and living, to learn about a specific health issue, particular aspect of macrobiotics, special areas of interest or develop cooking and menu planning skills. We’ve also developed a range of online courses, so you can benefit wherever you are located.

Our longer training courses also offer part-time learning and one or two year-long trainings available in a modular format. Beyond that we also have courses designed for our graduates – thus helping with every stage of the learning journey.
