Exhale to Inhale


Exhale to Inhale empowers those affected by domestic violence and sexual violence to transform their lives. ETI uses the healing practice of trauma informed yoga to empower survivors, while helping communities to develop skills and knowledge to support them. Through weekly trauma-informed yoga classes founded in choice making, safety, and simplicity, the ETI style of yoga offers far-reaching benefits that carry over off of the mat into everyday life. It is a means for survivors to feel strong, to begin to practice making choices, to connect to how certain shapes make them feel, express when something doesn’t feel right to them, and figure out what would work better. Classes take place in domestic violence shelters and community centers throughout New York, Connecticut, and Los Angeles. ETI is also focused on sustaining and caring for the staff and volunteers who work in this field and offer separate classes for the employees in these facilities. In addition, ETI provides trauma-informed teacher training for certified yoga teachers and continuing education and self-care workshops for our team of volunteer teachers.
