“Feeling peace, steadiness, and love grow; strengthens my dedication to this practice.”

I get so excited and proud of my students when I hear the conviction in their voice for this life-giving practice. To see their sovereignty, joy, and clarity deepen is beautiful to witness.

To step out of the fear, pain, and frustration of surviving life; and to transform into leading their life with clarity and compassion.

I dedicate my life to sharing this practice with all interested in participating; and to creating presence based community so we may walk side-by-side on this journey.

To work with me, email me at rachel@alignphysicalrehab.com. Together we will start this mindfulness journey.


In each moment, pause and ask yourself: How can I help?

With no intention to fix, change, or figure something out; but to listen.

Take a moment to pause now, with a steady and compassionate gaze, ask yourself: How can I help?

All that you have to do is wait, to listen.

See how each moment is transformed when this is our intention.

Feel the deep listening that occurs, the resting into awareness. […]

Out of the greatest love, presence based practice will always ask more of you.

Not because you are not doing enough.

But because it can see your greatest potential and it will ask you to rise to meet this. Each and every time.

As your teacher, with much love, I will ask more and more from you. As I know what is within you, waiting… the greatest love, peace and strength you could imagine. It is here.

It’s time to rise up and realize this.

With chronic pain we often feel weak.

Thinking we need to get stronger to get out of pain.

For many with chronic pain you will be surprised to know that they are not actually weak. They often have normal strength in their body.

So where does this feeling of weak come from?

It is the exhaustion from the constant pain, feeling limited in what we can do, and trying to conserve energy that is the source of feeling weak.

It is the disengaging from life that is the source of weakness.

To no longer feel weak, we must re-learn how to fully engage in life while feeling safe we will not hurt ourselves. To do things that help us feel our aliveness and our joyousness.

If you want to feel alive again, contact rachel@alignphysicalrehab.com at ALIGN physical rehab

When we have been in pain for a long time or when we have had a trauma in our life, it is very hard not to be overtaken with fear. Truly we don’t know if we are going to make it.

Our survival instinct kicks in. Getting off the survival/fear response can be difficult. The neuro-immune pattern developed helps maintain it. It almost becomes choice less. We must take back that choice. We must start to interrupt that pattern. We must make a new pattern, one that¬†deeply lets our being know we are safe and unconditionally loved. We must change our neuro-immune pattern. This is possible. […]

You have an infinite amount of creativity.

Whenever you want you can access this unlimited creativity.

Just sit down or stand… something will always be created if you give it space. Wait, listen, watch. Your being will have an urge to follow what it sees and feels to create. Perhaps you see a movement, let your body move. Perhaps you hear a thought, let your being write. Or perhaps you feel a feeling, let your being express through whatever medium is in alignment with you.

Watch the magic of the universe create. It is there for you. You can trust it will always be there. Even silence or nothing is a form of creation. Hold that spaciousness and watch how the infiniteness of creativity flows through you.
