As see in:


I started going to exhale about a year ago. I literally can’t imagine my life without it now!... I am running and skiing stronger than I ever have before. I have never felt so strong and balanced as a whole, and I am no longer in pain. Needless to say, I am totally addicted to Exhale now. I crave the strength I feel after every class and absolutely love the ridiculously positive energy you feel as soon as you walk in the door!
