This is it friends, we're officially in soft launch mode. I know you're probably thinking what does that mean? What are you doing? I don't see anything happening. When will there be things? Why is your logo a pole dancer?
This means we're up and running as a woman-owned, small business. We now have all the pieces in place to start bringing our creative collaborations to life. However, there's still a lot to be done. We currently have several major projects in the works (including apparel and accessory lines) that we will continue to keep you updated on. In the meantime, you'll get to enjoy blog content that highlights movement in all its forms. Our goal is to produce inspirational content that will encourage and cultivate a community for anyone who identifies as a mover, regardless of their discipline(s).
As for the pole dancer in our logo, Exhale Movement was founded as the brainchild of Evie Gee and Jessica Moak. The two met and continue to work together as pole instructors at Divine Movement Dance, a pole dance studio located in the Greater Seattle Area. While developing duo choreography for a pole dancing competition they began to discuss different ideas and goals for businesses they were attempting to create separately. The creative choreographic process proved to be a positive and exciting experience for both of them ultimately earning first place at PSO Emerald. Seeing the positive working experience and similar business structures the two decided to join forces and bring their ideas together. They went to work defining the mission and ideals of what they wanted their company to be and represent. If it wasn't for pole and a general love of dance and movement Exhale Movement may never have happened.
Together, our main mission is to celebrate diversity and inspire inclusivity in every dancer, athlete, and movement artist. Our long term goal is to offer made-for-movement, high quality, and performance designs to as many different body types as possible. Our designs aim to go beyond size inclusiveness. We are driven by diversity and aspire to create clothing that reflects varying cultures that make up our world.
We hope you'll join our newsletter or follow us on Instagram and Facebook as we continue to grow. If there's movement or movers that inspire you we'd love to hear about them.

We have been listening. We have been watching. We have been educating ourselves. We have been consolidating resources to assist ourselves and others in making the biggest positive impact.
