EXHALE is an emotional well-being app designed for Black, Indigenous, Women of Color (BIWOC).
It's time to exhale - to let go of all that isn't serving you and breathe in life, energy, healing, and love. The practices in this app are what we call "soul medicine"- medicine for the depths of our souls.
This app was curated by BIWOC so that in your emotional well-being journey, you can lean-in and trust that this space has been cultivated specifically for you.
Key features include:
• Guided Imagining
• Breath Work
• Coaching Talks
• Stress Reducer
• Soul Medicine
• Super Power
• Your Dream
• The Future You
• Inner Child
• Inner Witness
• Box Breathing
• Calm Breathing
• Lion’s Breath
• Your Heart
• Inner Critic
As BIWOC, we face systems of oppression every day that cause hurt and harm to our souls, bodies, and minds. We hope that this can be a place that you can visit as often as you like to find refuge and healing.
May EXHALE be a haven for you, a place of rest and rejuvenation.
No more waiting to EXHALE.

Ratings and Reviews
I have not been a big fan of meditation apps in the past. This one works well for me. I’m obsessed with the breathing section. They are pretty short (about 5 minutes), but I also feel so much better after doing one.
Even more than that, I love the daily push notifications that remind me to take time to focus on myself, even if I don’t necessarily spend time doing one of the sessions in the app. The messages are always right on time for me and I never get tired of them popping up (I keep push notifications turned off for all the other apps I use because I hate them).
Highly recommend this app!!!

Speaking clearly is not speaking calmly
I go between this app and headspace. Something this app has that others don’t: clear acknowledgement of traumas and micro aggressions as well I actually really appreciate the spa-like music that is played softly behind the guide while they are speaking. I might actually take to playing some light music when listening to headspace. Something that this app cannot compete with their competitors on is the quality control on the guides’ audio recordings. Speaking clearly is not the only thing that makes up a soothing and relaxing guide experience… The audio is kind of sharp around the edges like there was insufficient soundproofing. As well, guides seem to have prioritized speaking clearly over calmly, and smoothly. You can hear vocal fry and unnecessary upward inflections in some exercises - this is both awkward and distracting and leaves me feeling annoyed like I didn’t get much out of the exercise. I will literally record these for y’all free if it meant you would have better audio quality.
I love this app!!
I love the entire app but I use the meditation the most! A bonus is it is made by an Afrikan/black woman and is for us and other indigenous women, how beautiful is that! It is directed with the intention to address issues that we deal with that others do not even have a clue about. It is soothing, calming and so relaxing. I appreciate and love this app!! I share it repeatedly w/my friends and on my social media. Fingers crossed that in the future you will have a few longer meditations. Thankh (speak life) you for creating what I’ve been looking for!
