Rachael Mannix Schmoker

“Born and raised in Alaska I spent my childhood in the wilderness exploring. I understood that my health was influenced by what and who was around me; by environment and community. I started a journey to study Community Health and eventually found my path toward holistic healing.”


Studies in Community Health and Health Coaching has provided me with invaluable skills to facilitate individual awareness and action toward behavior change. Exploring mindfulness has led me into deeper understanding of the benefits of movement and holistic techniques to revitalize our bodies, embody our most well self, and support our overall wellbeing.

I work with individuals who have all ranges of experiences, abilities and interests and I focus my energy as a practioner to meet each person with new eyes, looking at a unique set of skills and goals. It is my belief there is no one-way toward health and happiness, but it can start with curious exploration, continuous learning, and a cultivation of awareness.

I would love to hear about your questions and interests.

What people are saying…

Rachael is a truly gifted yoga instructor and an intuitive healer. Her background in community health and genuine care for people shines through in every class. At the start of each class, she checks in with each student and is able to bring a wise awareness of everyone’s individual needs; she then provides gentle guidance and exactly the right amount of challenge to each pose. I had a wonderful experience practicing yoga with Rachael and I look forward to experiencing her healing and positive energy in the future.” -Molly R

“Rachel has a unique talent for orchestrating group activities and making everyone in her presence feel welcome!” – Kara D.



“After several months of ear pressure and pain (and several doctor visits) I reached out to Rachael for Reiki and Ayurvedic bodywork in hopes of relief prior to a long drive back home. I experienced almost total and immediate pressure relief and relaxation like I’ve rarely felt. I will certainly be returning when visiting Homer again, and highly recommend her.” – Tom S.

Cultivating self-awareness is
a path toward harmony
within and outside the self.

Inclusivity Pledge

Rivers Turn seeks to be accessible to all levels of study and experience, all age ranges, diversity backgrounds, and those who identify outside the binary.
