In almost two decades of working in fitness and wellness, CJ has taught everything from step aerobics to vinyasa yoga to barre3. She earned her 200-hr teacher training at YogaWorks in Los Angeles under the instruction of Annie Carpenter and Sonya Cottle. She completed her barre3 certification in 2014 and created a beautiful community at their cozy West Village studio. 

On and off the mat, CJ is committed to social and economic justice; she has headed up cause-based and advocacy public relations for V-Day, Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, ColorOfChange.org, and more. For her passionate work, in 2017, she was named America’s Most Inspiring Trainer by Reebok and Well+Good. She is currently the VP of PR for Thinx and Icon. 

CJ believes we need The Class by Taryn Toomey now more than ever. Taryn created a place to feel safe and honor the body, breath, and voice. Through this individual  journey of staying mindful in body, breath and voice, we take steps toward creating a more mindful world and finding healing in our families, communities, country and beyond.
