The Class, a mindful movement practice, and GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, author, activist and entrepreneur, Alicia Keys, has announced The Soulful Sessions, a 3-part musical journey to move the body and lift the soul.
The Class and Alicia Keys 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.
These sessions will be 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 TheClass 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 Aliciafundamentally 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.”
“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!”
