This Epic Yoga and Dance Party Workout is FINALLY Launching in Philadelphia

For real this time.

To say Philadelphia has been waiting for Daybreaker to arrive for a while would be an understatement. The yoga-class-meets-raucous-morning-rave workout has long been in cities around the globe — from New York to Montreal to Paris — but not here.

Then, in April, we got wind of the fact that it was finally, finally coming to Philadelphia to host an event with the Wharton School. And then, just as we were pulling out our glow-in-the-dark leggings and getting ready to sweat to a live deejay, we found out that Daybreaker’s first pop up in Philly was limited to students only. Major bummer!

But now, we’re excited to share that Daybreaker is coming to Philadelphia — for real this time, guys. They’ve announced the launch on their website, and the Philadelphia Daybreaker launch is currently scheduled for January 31. In true Daybreaker form, the day will start with an hour of yoga, led by Octavia Plach, followed by two hours of dancing to a live deejay.

Never been to a Daybreaker workout? Here’s what to expect: First, you’ll want to dress up. People show up in all kinds of crazy get-up to these things, and the theme for Philly’s launch event is the “spice of life” (what that means is up to interpretation, but these chili pepper leggings are pretty freaking cute).

Next, bring a yoga mat if you’re signed up for the yoga portion of the morning. The workout will take place at Coda in Rittenhouse, and trust us, doing yoga on a bare nightclub floor is, um, gross. Very gross.

Other than that, just show up ready to let loose. The yoga session will start at 6 a.m., then the dance party will keep things rocking from 7 to 9 a.m. You can either buy a ticket to both the yoga and the dance party or a ticket just to the dance portion of the morning. Regardless, afterwards you can enjoy free coffee, healthy juices, and breakfast bites — which is good news for anyone who needs to scurry off to work following the sweat session.

Ready to give it a try? Snag a ticket here.
