Taryn Toomey is the definition of a powerhouse. An entrepreneur, mother of two, and dedicated yogi, she cleverly combined her knowledge of yoga, movement, and music with a desire to feel true release and created The Class.
We were a part of a recent weekend retreat with Taryn and Kevin Courtney at the gorgeous Weekapaug Inn in Rhode Island. Talk about a postcard-perfect location to get in touch with our spirits and calm our minds; we were in heaven.
The Class, as defined on Taryn’s website,”is a 65 or 75-minute cathartic movement experience. Through simple, repetitive calisthenics and plyometrics, participants challenge the body to engage the mind. With guided instruction and carefully curated music, this class invites students to witness their resistance to discomfort. The result is an expansive, heart-opening, body-strengthening release. This class will challenge and enlighten you all while building an incredibly strong, lean, resilient body.” Let us tell you, it’s the real deal.
Taryn has created something incredibly unique that makes you feel centered but also like a powerful goddess. You laugh, cry, focus, align your body and feel ultimate release as the music vibrates around you.
The retreat started with a lovely breakfast followed by mediation with Kevin Courtney. The chef at the Weekapaug Inn, Devin Bozkaya, dished out incredible food that featured a taste of New England and true nourishment for the body.
After that came our favorite part (but we are slightly biased): a Tata Harper facial! Using our favorite products, each guest was treated to a facial to get their skin glowing. The evening wrapped with another incredible meal and yoga by the water. Can we say #weekendgoals?
Taryn has locations for The Class in New York, LA, and Vancouver and luckily does the weekend Retreatments in a variety of locations. The next is in Martha’s Vineyard in July. Check out The Class and more at http://taryntoomey.com/.
