“A good workout and a good outfit do wonders for boosting my mood at the end of daylight saving time. Nothing lifts my spirits more than a class with Taryn Toomey at her gorgeous, crystal-infused studio in Tribeca. As for an outfit, this Givenchy sweaterdress is everything—soft, warm, and just the right amount of siren.” —Negar Mohammadi, Vogue Director of Brand Marketing

"For the person on your list who values a crystal’s extraordinary ability to store, transmit, and transform energy, or perhaps for the person who might be in need of a crystal’s relaxing, healing, empowering benefits."
I've had my eye on this cleanse for three consecutive years for a few reasons. For one, it's refreshingly not a juice cleanse and doesn't even come close. The end goal isn't about weight loss or fitting into a pair of skinny jeans. No ma'am. This one is for the seeker who wants to feel his or her best, be radiant, and learn about the self.
Manhattan’s hottest workout, now available in Miami, is one of those fitness movements that’s hard to categorize: [The Class] melds yoga, boot-camp-style cardio and a killer soundtrack into a cathartic experience. “My favorite part is when the whole room is dropped in. The music is pumping, the sweat is pouring, the goosebumps are alive.”
“The Untethered Soul by Michael A Singer. His book breaks down what consciousness is in a very digestible and accessible way. I keep it by my bedside table—it is one of those books that you can pick up at any point, crossroads or confusion in your life, open it to any page and it speaks right to whatever situation you may be facing.”
“You empower people to notice that you have the power of choice and then it's action. It's a thought. It's a feeling. And then you actually have a choice to act on that thought… it's a through line through class. I could do one more. And one more. You breathe. And then it's over. None of this permanent. Now I'm stronger. Stillness. Close your eyes. Notice your mind.”
For the yogi in your life, this meditation cushion, hand selected and designed by Taryn Toomey of The Class, will bring comfort and coziness to your meditation routine. Bonus: Sefte supports female artisans in the high Andes of Peru, who crochet each 100% alpaca cushion by hand.

The Piece: Even though they’re suede and something that you would wear for the colder seasons, I wore them all summer, because they have a hidden heel. I’m still wearing them every day and I bought a second pair.
Why It’s Endured: I’m often going from the studio to the street, so for me to be able to throw a boot on that has a little bit of a lift in it is key so I don’t look like I just left the gym. I always put some sort of footwear on that’s not sneakers. It just makes you feel a little bit more elegant.
Estimated Cost Per Wear: $.65 per wear if worn twice a week for 10 years.
