Mood Moves: How to release frustration (not that you have any)


Introducing Mood Moves, a Well+Good video series created by Manhattan fitness phenom Taryn Toomey, who explains how to use your body to change your mind.

Should you find yourself walking around with some major frustration, resentment, or pent up stuff (who you?), Taryn Toomey’s here to help—with a burpee that calls for sound. And by sound she means allowing yourself to make loud, cathartic exhales that your neighbor should almost be able to hear.

Toomey’s popular workout method called The Class is crazy transformative and is based on the concept that unresolved stuff (from way back in your life to your most recent day at work) can leave you feeling stuck.
