"Through all my years of catering and teaching, I`ve learned that the most effective way to teach is in the field and on the job. What better way to learn than working right in the kitchen with food and your teacher right along side to guide you? When you come to Bali for my Pure Joy Academy, you will become certified as a raw food chef and caterer. You`ll get a chance to practice teaching in front of a group and get the experience of a lifetime!
There`s no better way to learn than doing, so that is why I am so excited to teach you how to cater raw foods. We`ll be providing incredibly nourishing foods in support of hungry yoga students and their teachers. This course teaches you how to take chances and balance flavors, learn how to think on your feet and get the job done in a timely and efficient manner.

The island of the gods, Bali and her people is a culture Yoga International magazine describes as 'living yoga.' Spirituality, harmony with nature, peacefulness - these elements embody the Balinese way of life. Ubud, an artist's Mecca, is the cultural heart of Bali. Embedded in rice terraces, temples and powerful energy, at a slight elevation so cooler than the nearby coastal heat, Ubud's climate has turned it into the perfect yogic destination.
