The Class by Taryn Toomey
The Class by Taryn Toomey is one of the most sought after classes in NYC and LA. It has been written about in SHAPE Magazine, Bloomberg Business, Women's Health, VOGUE, The Coveteur, The New York Times, Harper's Bazaar and more. It even has a cult-like following amongst the celebrity elite, like Naomi Watts and Elle Macpherson. The demand for The Class has been so high that it's even been hosted as a pop-up at The Surf Lodge in Montauk and Supta Yoga on Nantucket.
I was fortunate enough to participate in The Class at Studio 450 in Chelsea with some of the most influential women I've ever met, during the 2016 Linked Not Ranked Series.
In my own words, The Class is a mix of HIIT cardio, Pilates, yoga and dance. it's a rhythmic celebration of life and the emotions that fuel it. Anger, sorrow, joy -- all of these were drawn out of my soul during the 45 minute experience. From mat work (planks, lunges, push-ups and leg raises) to jumping jacks, intense cardio bursts, and even to meditation, The Class offered a journey of strength, self-awareness, and self-acceptance like no other.
I highly recommend that you try The Class at least once in your lifetime -- especially if you're a yogi seeking something MORE, because in The Class you find something greater than what you sought after. I left thinking, "if only I had woken up knowing that I would experience this today."
