Vogue Editors on the Mood-Lifters They’re Buying to Beat the End of Daylight Saving Time

“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

I Tried Taryn Toomey's Detox: Here's What Happened

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.

Taryn Toomey’s Hit Workout, The Class, Comes to Miami

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 Class by Taryn Toomey

“We’re intentionally making it a basic movement, so you can actually notice what the mind is doing around the feeling, engage in discomfort and notice what the mind does around the feeling of discomfort.”

Interview with Natalie Kuhn

“I find myself in a state of fear when I am creating a story about the way something will or will not play out, what ‘they’ might say or how they will react. When I am in that place I ask myself ‘what part of this is fiction’ and ‘what is in my control?’”

Taryn Toomey, Founder Of The Class, On Anxiety, Mindful Movement & Giving Pain A Purpose

“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.”

Taryn Toomey’s Uplifting Boots

The creator of exercise empire The Class on the $680 Isabel Marant suede boots that dress up her everyday leotard.

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.

My Morning Routine: Face Masks, Meditation, and
Cranked-Up Music

“When you have a rough morning, if the energy is a little low, or sad, or bad, crank the music. I do it with my kids, and some silly jumping-jack song lightens the whole house, switches up the mood, insta-hijacks all the negative energy. It works if the day started out on a bad foot, but it works if you’re alone, too: If you’re feeling sad or heartbroken, listen to something. There a vibration in music for us when we need a little help—use it."

Fitness Retreats Tout Vacation Perks: Workouts and Wine

“'It’s not the typical retreat in terms of ‘kill yourself, don’t eat anything and go home a smaller version of yourself,’ says Kristin Fine, a Connecticut-based interior designer who has gone on trips with the Class by Taryn Toomey, a New York-based fitness studio. Instead, she says, 'It’s an opportunity to give yourself some space from your everyday life.'”

INSPIRATION IN ACTION

“The Class by Taryn Toomey offers a workout that goes beyond the physical. Participants scream, stomp their feet, and shake their fists, all to thumping music and motivational messages. 'The Class is a feeling - we're opening up a room for people to feel,' says Toomey.”

In New York gyms, firming flab isn't enough

“At Taryn Toomey's downtown boutique fitness studio ... 40 women at a time sweat through a 75-minute exercise session called The Class. 'I wanted it to feel like a womb,' Toomey says, gesturing to walls painted a pale shell pink. We're two floors up from the financial district, one of the city's more chaotic and malodorous neighbourhoods, yet traffic seems a distant dream. A Florence and the Machine song, vaguely evocative of women's empowerment, wafts into the reception area from the workout room."
