What is Inner Workout?

The philosophy

Inner Workout is inspired by the yogic concept of koshas, or layers of being. We talk about them as the five dimensions of wellbeing. Our society tends to focus self-care efforts solely on the physical body, but that only addresses one aspect of your self. Inner Workout offers multidimensional tools, resources, and experiences designed to help you listen, respond, and tend to all of you.

The five dimensions of wellbeing


This dimension explores your relationship to your physical body—how well you know your body and how you care for it.


This dimension focuses on your breath and how you relate to energy in your daily life.

Mental + Emotional

This dimension looks at what comes into and flows out of your mind.


This dimension explores your relationship to your own inner knowledge.


This dimension explores your connection to yourself and to the world around you.


The Inner Workout practice isn’t quite like anything else out there. Of course you’ve got questions!

Is the Inner Workout practice a fitness class?

In an Inner Workout class, you’ll move your body. You might even sweat. However, Inner Workout isn’t about burning calories or changing your body. This is a space for you to practice listening and responding to yourself.

Who is Inner Workout for?

Inner Workout is for every body. Inner Workout is for you.

She’s on a mission to help others beat burnout through sustainable self-care practices.  Taylor studied Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt University.

Deanna Badong

Deanna moved from San Francisco, CA to Chicago, IL leaving her family behind and was in a situation where she felt lost and burned out. She started to read all the recommended self study books and maintained a consistent meditation practice, but she wanted to go deeper and find a supportive practice to help her figure out what she truly wanted in life. Enter Inner Workout and Taylor. After her first Inner Workout class, Deanna began to acknowledge her inner wisdom and learned what “responding in the most loving way possible” meant. Immediately excited about the mission of Inner Workout, Deanna became a Certified Inner Workout Facilitator and shortly after began her work as Community Operations Specialist. With a background in data science and a personal connection to the vision of Inner Workout, Deanna cultivates and holds space for others to have the best Inner Workout experience. When she isn’t working on a project for the Inner Workout community, she is going on long walks with her husband and dog, searching for the best cup of coffee in the city, or reading a book.
