A Letter From The Director


Thank you for your interest in the Exhale Project.  It is both my experience and my belief that healing must involve the body. Talk therapy as a healing modality for trauma is effective, but together with a body centered approach like yoga, you have the potential to transform your life!  It is from this idea that the Exhale Project was born.
