Wake up, stretch, coffee, negative news, work, home, repeat…snooooze. Break up with boring and start the day on a positive vibe! Imagine stretching with 100 other people in a group sun salutation. Picture sipping fresh iced coffee from some of the hottest spots in your city. Dream of dancing on a rooftop to energy pulsing beats…all before you trudge to work. It’s not a dream!
Daybreaker, a morning movement, organizes unbelievably fun yoga and dance parties before many people even roll out of bed. With once a month effervescent parties in over 25 major cities, people across the U.S. and abroad can get on cloud 9 before their commute. Their concept is to unite communities, live in the now with joy, and treat our bodies as the temples they are by refreshing with healthy morning snacks.
So what’s a Daybreaker party really like first hand? Kate experienced the July Chicago edition of Daybreakers, the Red, White and Blue event, at the gorgeous Morgan on Fulton’s lush urban rooftop. At first, leaving before the sun woke up seemed like a poor idea as her blankets were calling her back. Once she got there, however, the spirit of happiness was infectious. Friends with American flag headbands giggled and put on fake tattoos before flowing as a whole yoga body. Strangers donned headphones and danced in a silent groove to the bouncing beats of the Hood Internet. Kate left, not only high on life and Dark Matter coffee, but with a bag healthy goodies like Kind Breakfast bars, Skinny Pop Popcorn, Organic Protein Shakes and Mamma Chia drinks.
This month’s Daybreaker in Chicago will not only lighten your mental load but encourage you to take part in the glory of Chicago summers. Start your morning legasea on a boat…sans dolphins…but it’ll still be awesome.
Join Daybreaker revelors on a sunrise sail aboard the Daybreaker Yacht and get nautical with hundreds of fellow Chi-on the go-towners.
