"When I signed up for the class, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I thought anything to do with ‘better living’ could only help my situation. I have to say, it was MORE than I expected." -- S. Winters

"Initially, I wanted someone to just tell me what to do to be healthy, and with the leadership of Rachel and Stacey, I learned I can self-manage my way to a healthier lifestyle, overcoming my own chronic pain and chronic situations while understanding others’. Thanks to you, I am on the road to positive healthy living!!"  -- J. Roul
