The pinnacle of perfect fitness catharsis. A hybrid workout that pretty much defies categorization. A life-change experience not to be missed.

These are just a few of our descriptions of The Class, the limb-shaking, heart-pounding, soul-excavating, push you-to-your-limits mind and body workout created by fitness phenom Taryn Toomey in New York City only a few years ago.

And now Angelenos will get to experience the workout that first took Manhattan by storm back in 2013 with the debut of The Class in LA. Starting on February 27, the white-hot workout method will host regularly scheduled classes at studios throughout the Los Angeles area (Culver City, Venice, Santa Monica, and Brentwood), with amazing instructors, each hand-picked and trained by Toomey, to carry her kick-ass, burpee-loving, cleanse-your-negativity torch.

And (because we’ve had an obsession with the challenging yoga-bootcamp-therapy hybrid), we’re excited to announce a very special class with Well+Good’s founders to welcome The Class to LA. Join us!

Monday, March 14 | 9am – 10am | $25
MNR Dance Factory, 11606 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 90049
Includes beauty elixirs from Shiva Rose + refreshments from Beaming Cafe

Trust us when we say this will be an experience worth planning your day around. LA native and The Class veteran instructor Natalie Kuhn (a Tisch School of the Arts graduate and professional dancer who toured with David Byrne and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) will bring her uniquely vigorous yet mindfully empowering style to the 60-minute workout. She’s trained in multiple movement modalities, all of which seem to use physical challenges to discover and release emotion. Consider that a head’s up.

Kuhn’s class trademark? Pushing you face-to-face with you own personal challenges; you sweat, you dig deep, and you come out energized—discovering how strong you are, mentally and physically. Don’t worry, we’ll be right there with you.

Immediately following the sweat sesh, we’ll linger to enjoy natural beauty products from Shiva Rose and rejuvenating juice blends from Beaming Cafe. Because, when Toomey’s team is done with you, you’re going to appreciate refreshments of the highest caliber. See you there!
