VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY
Malaika is also sound healer! Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) has profound effects on the body and the mind, with clients quickly reaching a deep state of relaxation. By placing therapeutic singing bowls around or directly on the body, and using correct techniques, the practitioner engages with the client both physically and aurally, also known as vibrational sound massage. VST sessions allows you to get into a deeply relaxed state, where time disappears, physical boundaries dissolve, and problems and worries melt away. At the same time, your energy flow is stimulated and senses awakened promoting natural healing processes to occur, leaving you with a feeling of comfort and sense of natural wellbeing.

“Malaika is the most motivating and passionate fitness instructor I’ve encountered. Each class is highly personalized and unique and makes for a great start to the day.”
“She consistently does her very best. She cares about her clients and gives them a great work out every class. She is extremely well trained and versatile. Her music rocks the house down. She finishes classes with lavender on each person’s forehead (unless they have an allergy). She is truly inspiring, kind, and worthy of this honor.”
“Creates challenging classes that push me further than I think my body will go. She is extremely motivational and encourages me to do my best. Definitely an excellent instructor!”
"I had taken Malaika's barre and cardio classes at Exhale and after I got engaged I knew I wanted her as my personal trainer for the wedding. She challenges you but always in a positive and motivating way. I was never in better shape than after working with Malaika. If you are looking to be inspired in your fitness routine, definitely check her out!"
“She is incredibly encouraging and always changes up classes so one class is never the same. I leave sore from every class!"
"Literally the hardest workout ever. My heart rate was a solid 170 bpm basically the entire class. It kicked my butt, but I got a great workout in. Will definitely be back!"
"Malaika is the best instructor in Atlanta! Kicks my butt with a new innovative workout every time!"
"Wow can she teach all the HIIT classes please?! Her music was great and the Exercises were different and fun. She was super welcoming and actually took the time to ask people’s names, the other instructors have yet to do that and I’ve come a bunch."
"Tough and good variety of cardio, strength, functional moves. True HIIT!"
