The Anti-de Sitter Space/Conformal Field Theory correspondence offers insights into the non-perturbative regime of strongly coupled gauge theories such as Quantum Chromodynamics. I present the results of a soft-wall AdS/QCD model applied to the radial excitations of the pion. In this model, we show the equivalence of two common representations of the pseudoscalar field. We calculate the mass eigenvalues of these representations, finding good agreement with experiment. The Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation is also naturally obtained.
