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.


Trainings in mindfulness and Reiki led me to a deeper exploration of Yoga Alignment and Ayurveda. I became passionate about the use of intuitive awareness with movement and breath to revitalize our bodies and embody our most well self.

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. Never heard of Ayurveda or the Charkas? Excited to connect with someone to discuss your Doshic Constitution? Ready to move forward with natural healing? Reach out, say hello here.

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. I welcome individuals with disabilities and their inclusion to this practice. I am an ally for black and indigenous people of color, I am constantly seeking ways to increase the accessibility and inclusivity of holistic care while working toward an anti-racist, respect driven culture.
