Full Description

It’s time. Are you ready?

Time to wake up. Time to live anew.

This could be the most important month of your life.

This immersion in learning to be a great chef promises and demands more than simply a love and appreciation of living food. We anchor the awareness that what we eat matters, that it affects how we feel and act in the world, and thus how we treat others. Radiantly Alive’s Living Food Chef Certification Course embodies this awareness and moves beyond cuisine and nutrition empowering us to live to our potential.

The Living Food Chef Certification Course (LFCCC) is an intensive training in the lifestyle of Living Food, a lifestyle that embraces and cultivates awareness, kindness and health in every aspect of our being and life.

Spiritual Bali offers incredible opportunities and abundant gifts - from succulent mangos and papayas, to vibrant organic vegetables, to life-giving fresh coconuts, to some of the richest cacao in the world. The fecund land, the creative and artistic locals with whom you will work, and the culture that holds us are all reminders of what we know already - that food is more than just a substance or sustenance. What goes into, and surrounds the food is as important as what it looks or tastes like.

During this training you will learn the essential elements of living food nutrition and preparation from experienced and accomplished chefs. Additionally, and importantly, you will get a real world in-depth experience in actually preparing gourmet raw food in a real life situation. Under our experienced chef team, you will be crafting, creating and preparing three meals a day for a large group over the 26 day training period. This vibrant, loving health infused food will be feeding you, and the trainees of the Level I Yoga Teacher Training taking place at the same time and location of the Living Food Chef Certification Course. In this you will become an integral part of their process, helping them reach their potential as you reach yours.

As well as the amazing food and surroundings Bali offers some useful and curious challenges in technology, equipment and cultural sense and timing - all of which are quite different to the West. In order to best control hygiene and workflow, the LFCCC builds its own custom outdoor kitchen, trains Balinese people the value and art of preparing raw food and adapts our equipment to the space available. We create a practical workspace, a real world kitchen filled with love - even if it doesn't look like one from the west, or one from a TV show.

If you think that food is the only ingredient for a fulfilled life - this isn't the training for you!

We believe that what we eat changes the way we think, the way we think changes the way we interact, the way we interact changes the world. Its about more than just learning how to prepare incredible food. Its about being a cultural superhero. So in addition to joining the optional yoga classes during the training (where schedule permits), you will be joining the yoga trainees for parts of the schedule, particularly in the first week of the training. This first week will involve some cleansing, some bonding and the Radiant Life Activation (RLA). The RLA is an intensive 3.5 day program designed to remove any limitations, any preventions of you being who you can be, of putting into action what you can create both on the training and in life. This first week is the recipe that creates the rest of the training as a success!

It is a big investment in money, time and energy. So take some time to read the rest of what is on this page. Check out the sample menu to get an idea of the detoxifying 100% Living food diet, the curriculum, the training and the faculty. See what a typical day looks like with Radiantly Alive, have a look at what previous alumni have to say.

Then, feel rather than think:

Is it time?

Are you ready?

Daniel Aaron - Program Creator, Lead Facilitator

Yoga teacher, writer and human potential coach, Daniel leads trainings, workshops, classes and guides people to live their potential for happiness, health and success. Creator of the world recognized Radiantly Alive Teacher Trainings in 2005, Daniel also founded the Radiantly Alive Yoga studio in Bud, Bali in 2012. His own obsession with leaning and living radiantly brought him to learning from many of the modern masters, traveling the world with enlightened teachers and to delving into radically nutrition and cleansing. Blending what he has learned into a unique system of self-enquiry, movement and breath work, Daniel reaches people with compassion and evokes a space of understanding to inspire people to see their full range of possibilities. An unquenchable motivation to awaken himself and spark enlightenment in others has resulted in a profound awareness of human potential, the obstacles to living awake and a methodology to reaching it. He and his partner Lianne (midwife, writer and teacher) travel and lead together, grow and learn everyday with their three children, and are most delighted and gratified by transformation and presence – in both themselves and those with whom they work.

Sonja Eberhard, Head Chef

Being passionate about nutrition, yoga and health was the beginning of a culinary journey for Sonja when she returned to Australia in 1996 from living in Europe. Working in various Award wining wineries and cafes in west Australia, she opened her own cafe “Sonja’s Healthy & Tasty Foods” which gave her the starting point in building a great foundation and as the locals call it "the reputation as ‘the local food queen.’

The opening of West Australia's southwest first yoga retreat centre and raw cafe, was the beginning of a whole new journey for her. Leading the kitchen and working with like-minded raw talents like Giles Hohnen, Matt Samuelson, Nwenna Kai, Sayuri Tanaka and Felix Schoener, was not only a great learning experience but also opened the door door to the raw food and high vibe world. Wanting a new challenge and a preference for being ‘behind the scenes’ she continued to redefine her skills by running a production kitchen, researching and developing new recipes for the kitchen leading her to launch her signature brand, Biolive.

After being involved with retreats and workshops and catering for functions such as David Wolfe’s Australian Longevity Tour, Sonja discovered a new passion in teaching at yoga retreats. She started working for Radiantly Alive's rawfood training in Bali 2012, and now heads their biannual one-month Living Food Chef Certification Course. Throughout the year Sonja runs workshops, classes and retreats spreading her knowledge to people eager to learn new ways and techniques in improving their health and lifestyle.

Her own personal health challenges was what originally led her to the world of raw vegan food, discovering how to listen to her body and live a balanced lifestyle she is now impassioned with sharing this knowledge and gift with the world.

Our schedule is a product of love and constant improvement. Every training, over tens years worth, we refine, upgrade and improve the way we do things. This means the best is kept and refined, while new additions are constantly added.

Each day in the training is slightly different, and the schedule stays flexible to accommodate each individual training. A few times during the week you will join the YTT trainees, though when in the kitchen a regular day will look more or less like this (note this is just an example, day to day training of schedule will vary and be adjusted as needed).

There will be some optional and some required classes to join with the Yoga Teacher Training, though an average day will involve dynamic presentations on Living Food, live demonstrations on how to create nutritious dishes and hands on experience with creating dishes for everyone on the Level I Training!

Fresh daily coconuts, tropical fruits, organic salads and raw chocolate is the ideal nourishment for the yogic and radiant lifestyle. The Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training is the world's only yoga training and immersion that features gourmet, high vibration Living Food. We have access to incredible, bountiful organic produce, often picked within twenty-four hours of preparation in the kitchen; the world's best organic (really) raw cashews, cacao beans, cacao powder, vanilla; plentiful coconuts and tropical fruits; superfoods and herbs; and more. Meals and juices throughout the month will be provided as part of the program.

Think less carrot sticks and lettuce, and more raw lasagna, fresh tropical fruit consume & raw tiramisu.

An example of a typical days meal you will be preparing looks something like this:

Tropical Fruit Salad and Chia Pudding with Buckwheat Granola
Superfood green smoothie
Raw Chocolates, Truffles and Bliss Balls

Zucchini Wraps with Kelp noodles
Mixed Vegetables
Watermelon Gaspacho mixed with Fresh Salad & Spirulina Dressing

Brushetta with Tomato Basil & Bellpepper Pesto
Zucchini Cannelloni Stuffed with Macadamia Ricotta & Marinated Portobellow Mushroom with Wilted Spinach served with a Marinara Sauce

Greentea Tiramisu
