About - Wellness Cooking Academy


In case you do not know me, I am Sherri Mraz, owner and founder of the Cookin’ Yogi, located in Palm Beach County,  and the President and Founder of the  Wellness Cooking Academy, a virtual training school.  I am a health coach, author, mentor and have been teaching cooking classes since 2008.  I was even lucky enough to win a Best Plate Award in 2013 at the Flavors of Wellington, held at the Palm Beach Equestrian Center.

I have been a mentor for both clients and coaches since 2009. I am happy to say that I have helped hundreds of coaches improve their businesses and gain confidence by tapping into their God given skills and talents.

I took a little detour a few times, one of which landed me for about a year working at Whole Foods Market teaching their cooking classes and running their events. I loved the work but didn’t love working for someone else. I am an entrepreneur and creative person, it is very hard for me to fit in the box or be on the clock. I work hard and enjoy every minute of it. My goal is for you to enjoy your work as much as I do!

Early on I had established success in the healthy cooking education field but learned how difficult it can be to build a business and make enough money.  It seemed like I was always struggling with either building my client list, keeping my costs down, creating recipes, creating programs.  You name it… create, create, create… as if that was the answer.  Believe me – it is not.  You need SYSTEMS, to be working and staying focused.  I am happy to say that my mistakes were huge lessons and I have figured out how to work smarter not harder and I want to share that with you.

I have been a professional chef for over 30 years. I specialize in teaching culinary to new, up and coming chefs.  Nutrition and diets are areas I find fascinating. You have to take care of the inside as much as you need to care for the outside.
