Grip The Mat joined the international morning dance party sensation DAYBREAKER in their June 03, 2015 Washington, DC launch party!
Picture this: 6am on a Wednesday. The sun is still rising and the streets are quiet. In Flash, the infamous Shaw district nightclub, 60 yoga mats are set up in tight rows and DJ Ayes Cold is spinning in the booth. GTM's lighting designer Tall And Friendly dims the lights and the practice begins.
The practice begins with gentle warm up and then the beat builds. Sequences transition to heart-openers and core strengtheners to work up toward standing peak postures.
After sharing some sweat, the lights dim again as the music and pace of the yoga practice slows down.
A restorative Savasana and a collective Namaste seal the practice. In mere minutes, 250 other DAYBREAKER participants join the room for a 2 hour early morning dance party!
Yoga + dancing. We couldn't think of a better way to break the day. We hope to see you all next time.
Cheers and Namaste,
