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.
Never heard of Ayurveda or the Charkas?

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