When you think of Healing your Body, Mind & Spirit,

You Think of…


Exhaling, Letting Go, surrendering

Our aim is to help you experience your body as your ally. As though it is your voice when you have no words and your best friend that is always with you. All the while, finding your sense of mental centredness as you journey through the maze of your mind. This is what our logo represents. Ultimately we are marrying Eastern and Western philosophies into one place, our

Academy for Healing & Personal Development. 

Exhale Academy is a place for you to grow, whether it be through personal self-discovery, psychotherapy, coaching and/or therapeutic groups, or, through healing modalities, yoga, mindfulness, meditation practices, holistic nutrition. alternative medicine and/or body work.

Exhale was inspired by the pioneer work of Trauma Treatment experts that have discovered recovery and healing must address the mind, body and soul. When you come to Exhale you can use one service and leave here satisfied, or you can come and use several services and create your own healing program.



Our founders have long been passionate about mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Over the years they have explored alternative approaches to healing and wellness and were deeply intrigued by the benefits. It was when our Clinical Director saw the benefits to her personally that she jumped into exploring how psychotherapy, yoga and alternative healing could be blended in one centre that provided natural holistic care. Exhale Academy Inc. was developed from this inspiration.

The Exhale Academy Team is highly skilled and experienced. Everyone believes in the model of holistic and/or preventative care. In addition, this team works closely together to discover the best path for you. 

Prevention of serious illness, knowing how to cope with life challenges, having knowledgeable supports, managing mental, physical and emotional pain/suffering and knowing how to plan for success are all essential to well-being and enjoyment of life.

We hope to be a hub for you, one place where you know you will be respected, cared for, understood, seen, heard and deeply supported. We have an amazing team of professionals that have come together to share their wisdom and experience.

Programs & Trainings

Our trainings are a way for you to learn from our knowledgeable staff. They have put together some of the newest information to help educate, inspire and challenge you to be your best self.



There is nothing out there quite like the Advanced Dynamical NeurOptimal System. Neurofeedback has long been known to optimize brain frequencies thus allowing for increased flexibility in thinking and the cessation of symptoms of physical and mental illness.

The NeurOptimal System is by far the best system that exists, and the research supports this. For instance, this device is reading the frequencies of your brain every micro-second and sending feedback based on that information. Other systems take a pre-post reading of your brain and are then set to a singular frequency. While this approach will entrain your brain it is ultimately not teaching the brain. NeurOptimal’s advanced technology actually trains the brain, much like our brain is trained to ride a bike. By trial and error, our brain develops the accurate wiring for riding a bike to be possible. It is in the practising that we strengthen the skill.

Alternative Healing

Eastern medicine is a wonderful complement to Western philosophies. It is our belief that it is the merging of philosophies that creates optimal care.

Develop your shaman skills, learn energy medicine, understand the body chakra system, develop a keep understanding of your meridian system and/or heal through QiGong.

We don’t know what we don’t know, that we know for sure! We may heal through sacred connections or perhaps through the movement of energy or sound. It is worth us considering how these alternatives can help us proactively.

Learn Reiki, explore your intuition, connect with higher spirit, develop yourself as a divine being or come meet our intuitive healers who channel guidance.
