Daybreaker

On Wednesday, my friend Becky and I started our day unlike any other. We woke up at 4:30am, and headed to the Highline Ballroom in Chelsea for Daybreaker.

Daybreaker is a morning movement that’s sweeping across major cities in the U.S. and the world. Its purpose is simple: to provide a positive, uplifting and upbeat start to the workday.

The morning begins with yoga at 6:00am.

The website didn’t specify, so I told Becky that we probably didn’t need to bring yoga mats. Well… you do. Sorry Becky!

Luckily she thought it was funny, and began referring to our mat-less yoga as “extreme yoga!”

Wondering where we are in the crowd? Well, we weren’t in the crowd!

We were doing yoga onstage.

After a one-hour yoga class, things start to really pick up at Daybreaker.

The morning continues with a two-hour dance party, which let’s be honest is pretty much how every day should start!

There was literally never a dull moment at Daybreaker. There were fun surprises throughout the morning, like when all of a sudden the crowd parted and there were musicians jamming to the music!

There were also tap dancers, acrobats, jugglers, this guy with the fan, and other awesome performances!
