Recently launched in response to this time of racial unrest, EXHALE is an app designed specifically for black, indigenous women of color (BIWOC). Founded by Katara McCarty, BIWOC cultural leaders and sought-after experts on race relations, the app focuses on these women's emotional well-being, based on the theory that the health and wellness industry tends to leave out these groups when it comes to leadership.
EXHALE allows visitors to come and go as they please for the healing that they need. It features five categories of wellness practices: meditation, coaching talks, affirmations, guided visualizations and breath work. In each category, experienced women of color offer up advice and techniques to help users. The content is meant to be a resource that helps BIWOC manage their emotional state, teaching them how to "let go of all that isn't serving [them] and breathe in life, energy, healing and love."
The app can be downloaded for free from Apple's App Store and Google Play.
