Today Grammy Award winning artist Alicia Keys and mindful movement practice, The Class, announced their special collaboration – The Soulful Sessions – a 3-part musical journey to move the body and lift the soul.
The Class and Alicia Keys have joined forces to curate three classes set to Alicia’s profoundly heartfelt music; designed to ground students, process a range of emotions, and ultimately restore balance.
“I love The Class. The method is incredibly inspiring and powerful, especially with its ability to help heal and restore,” said Alicia Keys. “Not only does it get your body strong, it strengthens your emotional body, mind and spirit too. I’m a real believer in the importance of Soulcare. Taking care of ourselves and our souls and these Beautiful Sessions are meant to give us all even more tools to soothe and uplift. I love this collaboration!”
These sessions, which drop in May, are being released in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Month. The first session is available on-demand in The Class Digital Studio beginning the week of May 3 with the second two sessions to be released on May 5th and 7th. The Soulful Sessions include: Connect to the Soul led by Taryn Toomey, Free the Mind guided by Natalie Kuhn, and Arrive in the Body guided by Soeuraya Wilson.
“This past year stirred up many feelings of anxiety and uncertainty as the pandemic swept across the world. At The Class we create space for vulnerability, acceptance, and healing by practicing the power of presence. This partnership with Alicia is very special to us not only because her music guides us on a powerful journey, but because Alicia fundamentally understands the power of mindful movement,” shares Taryn Toomey, Founder and CEO. “We hope this collaboration refocuses our joy, starting with a restoration of the body and mind.”
In honor of this collaboration, The Class has made a donation to the NYC non-profit organization Sad Girls Club. The organization was founded to create community and diminish stigma around mental health. They strive to support womxn of color within the millennial and Gen Z population.
The Class Digital Studio streams live and on-demand workouts, meditations, and movement series seven days a week throughout North America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia and Latin America. Access to the platform is $40 per month or $400 per year after a 14-day free trial.
The Class brings balance to everyday life through mindful movement. Founded by Taryn Toomey, the cathartic workout guides you to strengthen the body and notice the mind. The practice is mat-based and music-driven. We repeat one move per song to create sensation in the body and observe our thoughts. In any given class students can expect guided instruction and a carefully curated playlist to lead them through exercises they are familiar with such as—squats, jumping jacks, and burpees. The result is a mental clearing and emotional release. Through continued practice students develop tools to empower their life, along with an incredibly strong resilient body.
