What Is Mindfulness?
"Mindfulness is an awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally."
At its core, mindfulness is about paying attention with childlike curiosity. It's not a religion, it's not even meditation really, it's being present in the here and now.
In This Course You Will:
- CULTIVATE a daily mindfulness practice, 1 minute at a time
- INCREASE interoceptive awareness through breath awareness, body scans, and mindful eating
- GROW mind-body connection through mindful movement and yoga
- IMPROVE well-being through gratitude and loving kindness meditations and journaling
- DISCOVER the science behind how mindfulness works in our brains and our bodies
Why Do I Need Mindfulness?
Our society has become increasingly more mindless. Mindlessly scrolling, mindlessly eating, mindlessly communicating... This has contributed to increases in anxiety, depression, chronic pain, feelings of helplessness, anger and more...
Mindfulness is the antidote to all of that. A daily mindfulness practice can:
- decrease anxiety
- decrease depression
- reduce chronic pain
- improve sleep
- relieve stress
- improve self-esteem
- increase enthusiasm for life
- increase ability to focus
- reduce rumination
- lower blood pressure
- improve relationships
- improve working memory
Now, who wouldn't want all of that??

About Your Instructor
Hi! I'm Rachel and I am SO excited to be launching this Marvelous Mind course for you.
Throughout my career(s) as a martial artist, gymnast, ballroom dancer, personal trainer, mindfulness teacher, and mobility specialist, I've come to understand just how important tuning into your body and your mind is for overall quality of life.
Mind-body connection has always been a special interest of mine, stemming from my martial arts practice. Martial arts wasn't about self-defense, it was learning how to tune into your own energy, your body, and the present moment.
As an undergraduate, I had the opportunity to write a thesis on anything pertaining to Exercise Science. I just had to choose something mind-body related, so I chose to research mindfulness meditation. I learned the science behind a lot of what I had been already practicing.
In my time formally teaching mindfulness, I have seen the difference it can make in people's lives. From something as small as getting a 10 minute respite in the middle of a chaotic day, to being able to choose a compassion mindset over a defensive one in a difficult family situation, to being pain free for the first time in years.
I have collected and curated my favorite mindfulness practices to give you an easy way to start or continue your mindfulness journey, Rachel style.
I would be honored to help you find more ease and joy through mindfulness.
