We will have yoga classes every morning, 9.30-11.0, facilitated by Mey Elbi (more details below).


We have enough accommodation for everyone on site, although of course you are welcome to make alternative arrangements and travel into the course every day if you prefer. The accommodation comprises of beautifully decorated, homely studio apartments, some singles and some doubles, all with stunning views. All apartments have showers and toilets en suite, and a small kitchen area with a refrigerator. The cost is £19 (55 TL) per night for a single apartment, and £28 (80 TL) for a double. That includes a raw breakfast! Raw vegan lunches and dinners (with a menu devised by Kate) will be available every day for a small extra charge.

Bodrum is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The course will be held outside of the city, on the peninsula, up in the hills, overlooking the Aegean sea. The area is called Gumusluk. The average temperature at that time of year is around 26 deg C (79 deg F). It is a pleasant heat, not too humid, it rarely rains, and the days are long.

Flights to Bodrum from London at that time of year are about £100-£150 each way. We recommend looking at Easyjet, Thomas Cook or Turkish Airlines for best prices. A good option is to fly into Istanbul, and then take an internal flight from Istanbul to Bodrum, although EasyJet & Thomas Cook do fly direct. We can arrange transfers from the airport, the cost will be around £20 (60 TL).

The Course


We reserve the right to amend the course if necessary.

Day One


There is no food prep on this day. We will provide drinks. Please feel free to bring snacks with you. We will discuss the philosophy and foundation of Raw Magic, and give everyone a chance to talk about your own personal goals and intentions. We will also cover holistic detox techniques and begin discussing superfoods.

Other topics covered on the course include: the most important principles to create the best foundation in the body for optimum cellular health; travelling and how to stay raw when you’re not at home in your own kitchen; children on raw; and what in Kate’s experience is the best raw food diet for the Northern European climate. Kate will share information on all the important elements to include on a raw food diet, from both the nutritional aspect, so as a chef you will be creating dishes with optimum nutrition and maximum digestibility, and equally the flavour aspect, so you will be creating recipes that your friends and family repeatedly tell you are the best things they have ever tasted! We will comprehensively cover all the new and unusual ingredients that comprise the raw store cupboard and how to work them into your recipes. There are ample opportunities to taste both the food and the individual ingredients throughout the day.

“Thank you Kate for an amazingly Magic week! Thank you for your hard work and energy. Raw Magic in Goa was everything I wanted and much more….because of you I now have 22 new friends!” Sonia, UK

“It was an amazing time…. powerful learning experience being a part of the Raw Magic school. Thank you.” Anna, UK.

“Kate’s workshops are magical! She is such a sweet and wonderful person, you just gotta love her. She’s SO enthusiastic about her food and lifestyle, and when you look at her, you clearly see WHY you should start eating with awareness. She inspired me to make raw food delicious, to use superfoods on a daily basis and to really enjoy this lifestyle.” Nicolas, Denmark

“The course was an inspirational, spiritually awakening, refreshing and mind expanding experience that I believe everyone should take part in before they embark on a raw food journey. The most valuable things that I have learned is that it is not a diet, it is a way of life, and that you must include other vital rituals so we can make the most out of our lives as a whole. Kate’s experience, sharing and teaching is an essential part of the raw food revolution. Thank you so much.” Leah, UK
