Filed in Yoga Philosophy & Lifestyle — April 11, 2024

In the heart of every beginning lies a story waiting to be told. For 11Exhale, our story is one of transformation, connection, and the relentless pursuit of a vision that extends far beyond the confines of a yoga mat. I am Julianne Arce, the founder of 11Exhale, and this is our journey—from humble beginnings to the promising horizon that lies ahead.

The Genesis of 11Exhale

Our story begins in Tacoma, Washington, in the aftermath of personal trials and a profound encounter with yoga that would eventually light the path to healing and discovery. My journey through yoga began not as a quest for physical wellness but as a desperate search for peace in the aftermath of trauma. Yoga presented itself as a beacon of hope—a practice that offered not just solace but a profound sense of empowerment and renewal.

Driven by the transformative power of yoga, the vision for 11Exhale was born. The name itself, “11Exhale,” symbolizes a moment of release, a breath of letting go, and the beginning of a new chapter. It embodies our belief in the power of yoga to transform lives, encouraging each individual to release their fears, embrace their journey, and discover their potential.

Cultivating Community and Connection

From the start, 11Exhale was envisioned as a sanctuary—a space where individuals from all walks of life could come together to explore, grow, and heal through the practice of yoga. Our commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility has been the cornerstone of our community, fostering an environment where everyone is welcome, and every story is honored.

As we grew, so did our community. We’ve had the privilege of welcoming students from across the globe, each bringing their unique energy and perspective to our collective journey. Through retreats, workshops, and teacher training programs, we’ve witnessed the transformative power of connection, not just within the confines of our studio but in the natural beauty of Joshua Tree, Bali, and beyond.

Innovation and Evolution

The journey of 11Exhale is marked by continuous evolution, driven by our passion for innovation and our commitment to meeting the changing needs of our community. The digital age has opened new avenues for us to expand our reach, offering online classes, virtual workshops, and hybrid teaching models that bridge the gap between traditional and digital learning environments.

As we look to the future, we are excited about the possibilities that technology offers for enhancing the yoga experience. Our mission is to leverage these innovations to make yoga even more accessible and impactful for practitioners around the world.

The Future of 11Exhale

As we gaze into the future, our vision for 11Exhale remains clear—to create a global community where the transformative power of yoga is accessible to all. We are committed to exploring new frontiers, both within the practice of yoga and in the ways we connect and learn from each other.

Our journey is far from over; it is an ever-unfolding path that we walk together with our community. With each breath, each pose, and each moment of stillness, we are writing the next chapter of our story—a story of healing, empowerment, and endless possibility.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Together, let’s continue to explore the depths of our practice and the boundless potential within each of us. The future of 11Exhale is bright, and it is a future we create together, one breath, one exhale at a time.
