Introducing the

Wellness Cooking Academy

A cooking certification course that goes far beyond the popular done-for-you programs. This is more like a business-in-a-box that will give you the tools and the backing that you need to jump-start your wellness-related business.

I feel your pain when it comes to creating the business that you dream of.  I love learning, but I do not believe that more food education and recipes are going to get you any closer to your goal of building a successful coaching practice, although you get that too!

You already have the knowledge and passion that you need.  What is missing is a system with tools and an incredible team of “insiders” to get you making money.

A comprehensive program offering both the cooking as well as the business skills that you need to build your business and finally boost your client base. This is more like a business-in-a-box that will give you templates, tools, coaching and the backing that you need to jump-start your wellness related business.

Do you ever wonder what the missing piece is?

Do you find yourself giving advice all day long, yet when you look at your bank account you often wonder why the numbers are not matching your passion?

I can tell you the reason; you need a SYSTEM! No successful business functions without structure. It will be your lifeline to sanity. No more testing, experimenting and hoping things will work. This is the system to get you going on your path to building a thriving business.

This course gives you:

  • Done-for-You programs
  • Business skills and knowledge
  • Credentials through certification
  • Support

Giving you the confidence that you need to be able to reach out to your contacts and sign them up for classes. There is no overthinking. The system is here and ready for you to take charge of your business growth.

We believe in SIMPLICITY! We help you create the necessary steps to build your business from the ground up. Think of it like the rungs of a ladder, you don’t start at the top, you climb from the ground up. 


When finished you will be able to

  • Teach an organized and delicious cooking class packed with health tips, making you an instant expert.
  • Learn how to engage your participants and sign them up as a client.
  • Secure corporate clients with professional proposals and contracts
  • Present cooking class lunch and learns.
  • Teach a detox cooking class   
  • Sell your new detox program.
  • Keep an efficient and organized back office.
  • Know what to charge 
  • How much to spend on supplies
  • How to pack light and efficient for your classes and how to upsell programs and book more classes.
  • Plus…you will be getting your own book writing template to help get a cookbook done!

Did you graduate from a nutrition school or some other training and now feel like you don’t know where to start. I too had those days. I knew I wanted it but I would start going in circles… only when I got with other successful like minded people did it all start to come together for me…and  I made the decision to succeed.

You have to do this work like you are training for a sporting event. It takes discipline and the right equipment.

The first question you have to ask yourself is do you want it, really want it? If so, then ask yourself if it is a hobby or a career. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a hobby as a business but if you are trying to create a significant income then the choice clearly has to be that you want it to be a career. Let’s get to work together! For now I can be your manager until you get on your feet, have the tools and then you become the boss of your own business. 

Ready to change your career and start making money doing something you absolutely love?

Eating Your Way to Better Health, a 12-Week Plan

What are People Saying?

I have training in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and was looking for a way to incorporate my FDN training with my love for cooking/health advocate.

After researching many programs, a friend introduced me to Wellness Cooking Academy.  It has, by far, surpassed my expectations.

Each module is throughly thought out and each ‘done for you’ kit eliminates the hours of wasted time trying to figure out a plan of action. It allows you to plug in ‘your brand’ and go out with confidence in whichever path you choose.

Sherri is so kind, thoughtful, passionate about coaching and cares about each of as individuals, not only as a group. Wellness Cooking Academy has helped me gain confidence in myself and gave me the tools I needed to succeed.

Melissa Castner

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Cooking Instructor

This past year I graduated from a renowned health coaching program that left me inspired, excited, and knowledgeable, but also unprepared for my new career. I was filled with anxiety on where to begin and feared if I have what it takes. Thankfully, I found just what I needed in the Wellness Cooking Academy.  I was I spoon-fed every step of the way, leaving me feeling confident and fully prepared for the next steps to creating programs that will make a difference in the world and also make money. I have everything I need from step-by-step instructions on hosting successful cooking classes to flyers, pamphlets, recipe book templates, and handouts already done for me!  It is literally all at my fingertips. The support and brainstorming ideas that come from Sherri, the amazing dynamic group of guest speakers, and all my fellow classmates was invaluable. I will graduate from WCA feeling confident, prepared, and ready to rock my business! So very thankful.

My passion has always been cooking and learning to prepare Healthy Food. I had attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in 2015, but found myself struggling after graduation. Trying to figure out exactly which direction to take my career was overwhelming. I met Sherri and was very impressed with her coaching. I was among the fortunate ones to be in the Pilot Program for the Wellness Cooking Academy. Now, I am in the process of setting up my classes and web site with much more confidence and knowing I have a Support system in place. I did not have to do all the research on how to setup cooking classes and everything that goes with running a successful class. It was all done for me on templates. Sherri gave us an actual road map! Kudos to Sherri for such a brilliant idea.

We believe in “NO COACH LEFT BEHIND” that is not our original quote, although it applies.


In case you do not know me, I am Sherri Mraz, owner and founder of the Cookin’ Yogi and the President and Founder of  Wellness Cooking Academy.  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.

I established success in the healthy cooking education field but learned how difficult it can be to build a business.  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 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.

I love teaching cooking classes! To me it is such a fun way to spread the message that, “Healthy begins in the kitchen.” Over the years I have gotten so busy with the demand for classes that I knew I needed to find a way to train others so that we could create a brigade of healthy cooking instructors. I hope you will join me in my virtual live course. I can’t wait to get to know you and help you build your career.

More Results

Because I work full time I haven’t had time for my nutrition and wellness business. Until now my lack of resources and tools have been my biggest weakness.

Sherri’s class and teaching style is SO ORGANIZED and helpful!! It really has given me the tools and confidence to start taking the time that I do have to spend on my business and be more productive in order to start creating an income with my passion and get my way our of the rat race of corporate!

Nicole Manion

Sherri Mraz, has helped me in many ways: Her success system gave me the ability to focus on my demonstration and move forward from where I was previously stuck.  She gave me excellent sample invitations with appealing graphics and words that build interest and excitement.  I can now book my events and present with confidence.

Consuelo Davis

The Cooking Aesthetician

The minute I saw the Cooking Wellness Academy I knew I had to enroll.  I had been struggling to find ways to scale my business in a way that incorporated healthy cooking workshops. Even though I’m a good home cook, and my mom is a gourmet chef, I lacked the confidence that I could do this myself!

I have taken quite a bit of Sherri’s sage advice by feeling my fear about all of this and doing it anyway!
I truly believe this program will change me in many ways (already has) because I will be able to leverage my passion and skills and parlay that into helping even more people.  Helping people succeed and live a healthy life gives me the utmost pleasure and satisfaction in my life and is what I was meant to do on this earth.  This program creates another rung on that ladder for me which I am grateful for!


Jenny Berk

Holistic Health Coach, More Time For Yourself

I graduated from IIN in 2012 and felt that I was unable to really pin point where to put my energy. Hearing about the Wellness Cooking Academy wholeheartedly resonated with my beliefs and my journey in guiding people to a healthier lifestyle. Sherri’s ‘”road-map” narrowed down exactly how and where I knew I needed to go. I am completely re energized and have a new zest for the reinvention of how I am working with clients. Teaching cooking classes is something I have always wanted to dabble in, with the guidance from Sherri and the amazing team of guest speakers she has put together, I now have confidence that I can totally do this! THANK YOU SHERRI MRAZ!!!


Leah Somers

Certified Holistic Health and Lifestyle Coach

Before attending The Wellness Cooking Academy I felt overwhelmed by the amount of things that I still needed to accomplish after graduated from my nutrition school. Sherri helped me streamline my path to success and overcome the struggles I was facing. She guided me with done for you programs to get me in front of clients right away, helped me find my target audience, and answered any questions I had. Sherri’s course was the missing piece of the puzzle. This is exactly what you need when you feel like you don’t know how to just get started!

Tracey Heyboer

Certified Holistic Health Coach

Why the Wellness Cooking Academy?

Because every day I hear from health coaches who are stuck, confused or just fed up trying to build their businesses.

I just received a call from a fellow coach who is a health coach, chef, caterer and has written a cookbook, (you would think she would be all set). She has been wanting to teach classes for years. She had a million questions on how to get started. “Where, how, when, how much to charge for classes for private? What do you do? demo, hands on?” She said she really needs to get started and needs more money. She is over-trained and under-working and under-earning. There is my theory again. She does not need more recipes (although you get that too), she needs tools and like minded people to support her and cheer her on (a team).
