DayBreaker: The Ultimate Way to Start your Morning
Early morning workout followed by a 2 hour dance party. Sounds like the typical way to start the workday, right?! Weekday mornings are hard to beat after you attend DAYBREAKER.
DayBreaker was started by a group of friends who decided to kick off their mornings in the most unique way. A morning fitness class, 2 hour dance party, all you can drink coffee bar and healthy breakfast treats, all to a live DJ inside a lively venue with sporadic "WOW" moments in between. All of that takes place BEFORE WORK! Events are only held on weekdays. The concept has really taken off. You can find DayBreaker in major markets across the country.
I learned about DayBreaker on Instagram. There was an image in my feed of sweaty people in a club wearing workout clothes who looked like they were having a blast. After I read the caption I realized that the event was in the morning--that caught my interest right away! After looking into it a bit more, come to find out DayBreaker had recently launched in the DC market.
My first DayBreaker experience was a Halloween theme. The event was held at the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC. I didn't want to disappoint in the costume department so I bought a skeleton long sleeve--hey, better than nothing!
With a 6AM yoga start time, I woke up well before the sun and made my way downtown. I was a few min late and ended up in the very back of that dark, narrow venue. I quickly got into child's pose and immediately connected to the live music. It was really soft and soulful. I even caught myself groovin' in between postures through out class. The music gradually picked up and I was loaded with energy by the final resting pose Savasana. It was hard to keep still as a heard of people were waiting outside the club doors to get in and get the dance party started.
I rolled up my mat and headed over to the open coffee bar to get my morning caffeine, hydrate with coconut water and snack on a KIND breakfast bar. The DJ immediately picked up the music and it was a full on dance party until 9AM. There are random moments throughout the event where the crowd is surprised with something over the top: a live marching band, hoola hooper, fire blower, aerial dancer or something unexpected makes it way in through the crowd. The people who make up this community are incredible humans! They are all truly there to have a good time and spread more love and light in the world.
