Our Partners :
Exhale to Inhale’s 17-hour teacher training is open to all – yoga teachers, clinicians, curious humans. This training provides participants with an understanding of the science of trauma and empowers them to create a trauma informed environment to support recovery & resilience. This training qualifies for Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.
Exhale to Inhale’s trauma-informed yoga classes provide a place where survivors may begin to reconnect with their bodies, recognize how movements make them feel emotionally and physically, and based on those feelings, practice making choices for themselves and acting on those choices.
Through our Corporate Program, Exhale to Inhale brings accessible tools & practices directly to your offices to help your employees increase their overall well-being & productivity. Through yoga classes, meditation classes and self-care workshops, we provide your employees a chance to relieve stress while building positive habits. Check out our yoga, meditation and self-care offerings!
Each week, our instructors draw upon the training and resources we provide to plan a sequence of gentle movement and breathing exercises that meet the needs of survivors whose lives have been affected by trauma. Operating in this environment presents its own challenges. However, in the midst of chaos, we attempt to create a safe space in which survivors can breathe and connect with themselves.

Yoga brings me a dignity of carriage as well as physical strength. I can walk into any place and feel like I belong. Or, if I’m not comfortable, I have the strength of mind to say to myself, ‘No, let’s go.’ Yoga nourishes me…it literally saved my life on a daily basis.”
I am committed to supporting Exhale to Inhale because it exemplifies so many things that I believe in. As a mom, I love that it shows my three sons how one person's idea and initiative can impact the lives of many. As a feminist, I love that it's creating a supportive, nurturing community for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. And, as an athlete, I love that it provides women with the means to feel strong, confident, and at peace in their bodies.
Partnering with ETI has been extremely beneficial to the women and children we serve. Their yoga classes have profound short-term and long-term impacts on the participants and on their physical and emotional well-being. There is something deeply healing and grounding about trauma-sensitive yoga that individual and group counseling alone cannot achieve. My clients, staff, and I are all incredibly grateful to ETI for providing this invaluable program that complements VIP’s core services and furthers our mission of empowering survivors of domestic violence and aiding them in their healing process.
