It started as an underground thing. Held in a dance studio a few times a week in downtown Manhattan, The Class by Taryn Toomey quickly gained a cult following amongst the fitness in-crowd. Unlike anything else in the boutique fitness market—step into the studio and you’ll shake, scream, shout, ground yourself, breathe, and definitely sweat—The Class seemed to transcend “exercise” and reach a new level of mindfulness … and maybe therapy. Able to speak to the mind and the body, Toomey’s next-level classes seem to speak to women on a deeper emotional level.
Since then, The Class, and its inspirational and vivacious founder Taryn Toomey, have rocketed into fame. Not only does the method have its own crystal-infused New York City studio, it’s expanded its offerings to the West Coast. No doubt, The Class by Taryn Toomey is only going to grow in popularity—and Toomey’s recent collaboration with activewear titan lululemon is proof positive that she’s more than just a passing trend … she’s the real deal.
And the collection itself is completely unique—it perfect embodies lululemon’s athleticism and Toomey’s ethereal vibe. According to lululemon, “Each piece of this limited-edition collection seamlessly blends lululemon’s expertise in technically beautiful design with Toomey’s personal aesthetic and experiential feedback to create an ethereal yet functional collection to support mindful movement.”
The 11-piece special-edition collection features, amongst others, seamless crops and bras, knit wraps and ribbed leotards that allow guests to move freely with no distractions. Comprised of dreamy colors—light mauves, soft whites, dove grey, porcelain pinks—and mixed materials like seamless woven four-way stretch luon and soft cotton blends, you’ll keep reaching for these pieces all summer long. Bonus: Limited-edition towels and mats will round out the collaboration. The lululemon x The Class by Taryn Toomey Collection will be available in select lululemon stores in the US, Canada and the UK, and online in North America.
