"Yoga, Pilates and Dance saved my life," declares Rachel Wainwright on Exhale Studio's website. Her path to these practices was spurred by a particularly rocky point in her life, when she craved a way to feel happy and alive. Diving into yoga, Pilates, and dance helped her feel at peace and more able to listen to her intuition, to such a point that she felt like she’d stumbled onto a secret. Desiring to share this feeling and her passion with others, Wainwright opened Exhale Studio—so named to serve as a constant reminder to release and let go. She gathered a team of like-minded instructors and, through her classes, started helping others to let go and embrace life while they built strength and balance.
In yoga sessions, clients gain flexibility and balance through a series of poses and breathing exercises. Yoga styles include refreshing hatha yoga, dynamic vinyasa flow, flexibility-boosting yin yoga, and tranquil candlelight yoga. They also offer Pilates classes that work to align the spine and build core muscles. Meanwhile, dance lessons help burn calories and build self-esteem while learning dance hall, Zumba, burlesque, belly dancing, hip-hop, and the correct spelling of the YMCA.
