If you live in New York, chances are you've heard of The Class by Taryn Toomey. A combination of strength training and meditative movement, it's designed to promote self-study through physical conditioning. While other workout classes might encourage you to tune out the pain, The Class will tell you to do the opposite: Listen to the negative voice in your head, and then learn from it.

With devotees including Jennifer Aniston and Christy Turlington, The Class speaks to anyone looking for a toning workout with a side of pure release.

In this podcast interview, I sat down with Toomey to track the evolution of her brand: from the moment she started teaching it in the basement of her apartment to how she is intentionally scaling it today. Along the way, we cover the self-care practices that keep her grounded, the importance of infusing your physical movement with meaning and observation, and how to give the pain a purpose.
