The Macrobiotic Association is a voluntary organisation made up of a group of elected directors and the membership. We represent a broad spectrum of macrobiotics and aim to be a positive, harmonious, constructive group when working with other macrobiotic organisations, teachers, schools and individuals.
Our Directors: Simon Brown, Ariel Perea Diaz, Anna Mackenzie, Marion Price, Filipa Silva, Melanie Waxman and Katerina Mlejnkova.
Melanie Waxman is considered a pioneer in the field of nutrition, macrobiotics, food energetics, and holistic health. She has spent 4 decades practising integrated therapies and has helped clients from all over the world including well-known musicians, politicians, actors and top business leaders.
Filipa is a Macrobiotics and Qi Gung teacher and macrobiotic consultant in Lisbon. She teaches in Museum of the Orient and in Escola Macrobiótica and on Simon Brown’s online annual macrobiotic courses. With Simon, she developed the Macrobiotic Survey, researching the lifestyle and health of 600 macrobiotic people.
Katerina went through different macrobiotic schools, until She finally became the macrobiotic coach. She said about Macrobiotic: “It’s a fascinating world and it’s up to you, how far you want to go. We are already the whole macrobiotic family and I have not taken any type of medication for many years. It makes me feel very free and my life no longer has limits that I had before. I can’t imagine my life without macrobiotics and without organic foods”. She enjoys cooking, knowing what She eat and She love to pass on her experience to others.
Anna has been teaching, catering for events and retreats and leading workshops in Macrobiotic cooking and nutrition, home-remedies, yoga, shiatsu, healing, movement, philosophy and Interior Alignment for over 30 years in many countries.
Simon is the author of Modern Day Macrobiotics and Macrobiotics For Life and a macrobiotic practitioner, macrobiotic consultant and macrobiotic teacher living in London UK.
