Hi, I'm Rachel kanarowski.

I founded Year of living better® after working in the corporate world for more than 15 years.

At Year of Living Better® I've combined my extensive knowledge of the newest scientific research with vetted self-improvement practices to create a meditation program for modern companies like yours: one that focuses on helping your people feel healthier, more rested, and motivated to take on new challenges.

As the Head of Education, I've received formal meditation teacher training through UCLA's Mindful Awareness Research Center as well as at Unplug meditation studio in Santa Monica, California.

Currently, Year of Living Better® offers our weekly, live, guided classes to corporations and public institutions in the U.S., including for the Chicago Department of Public Health.

As a member of the broader human resources and wellness community, I am an active member of the Society for Human Resource Management, the American Mindfulness Research Association, and the International Mindfulness Teacher's Association.
