D.O.S.E. by Daybreaker

We are a new kind of club. One made for these unprecedented times.
By community, for community.
We spent 7 years spreading joy at sunrise all around the world. And we took notes. Now, we’re launching our first-ever membership.
And you’re invited.

What is a Joy Practice?
We workout our bodies to get stronger, and we meditate to nurture our minds, yet so many of us are idling by letting joy just be a once-in-a-while. What we’ve learned is that joy is more than just a feeling.

Joy is the new essential, the new self-care.

And practicing it to release your happy neurochemicals —your dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins so you can feel more powerful, fearless, loving, healthy, focused, connected and inspired—that’s the new frontier.

Your mental health support.

We do a fusion of dance, yoga, meditation, stretching, breathwork, tapping, nature walks, doodling, journaling and more. All to practice joy and find more abundance, love, euphoria, connection, drive, clarity, purpose. This is your mental health support engine, with a joy language for everyone.

World class joy facilitators.

We’ve curated our top Daybreaker artists, facilitators, experienced joy leaders around the world to guide you into the magic of your body. This isn’t about six-pack abs. It’s about glistening into your power.

Choose your own adventure.

Livestream & On-Demand. Tap into your natural brain-body high with a 33-minute Heroic DOSE practice, check in with yourself by pausing for an 11-minute microDOSE, or layer them up to create your own daily joy journey — 24/7.

Backed by science.

To make the natural tools for lasting happiness accessible to all, we’ve partnered with the Greater Good Science Center, the leading experts on the science of Happiness, to design practices that meaningfully change your neurochemistry. This is a new frontier where East meets West — where spirituality meets science.

Dopamine THE EXPLORER Dopamine incites your motivation to explore the unexpected, seek novelty, and innovate. This is your source of drive, pleasure and reward—plus, it has a critical role in motor control, learning and memory. It’s that feeling of accomplishment, that “yes, I’ve done it!” kind of euphoria.

Activated by music and dance, Dopamine also gets released when we anticipate, enjoy, or remember pleasurable moments, set and meet incremental goals, practice daily gratitude or exercise coordinated movements like dance. Exercise, meditation, a good night's sleep, a massage or a celebration of your life’s achievements can all give a boost.
Oxytocin THE LOVER When we connect with ourselves or other people, oxytocin floods our brains to dim anxiety and pain, inspire trust, build empathy and activate openness. This is the neurochemical responsible for helping you build your relationships. It helps you recognize the faces of your family and friends, promotes bonding, incites feelings of love and resilience.

You can boost your oxytocin levels naturally by hugging someone, activating your touch receptors with different textures, self-massage, stroking a pet or doing something that exhilarates you.
Endorphins THE PHYSICAL TRAINER This is that glorious rush of a runner's high. Stimulating your endorphins through movement energizes you and acts as a natural painkiller. Nicknamed the “feel-good” chemicals, they work similarly to opioids and cause a full-body sensation of euphoria and levity. Activated most potently by lengthy, vigorous exercise (like dancing with reckless abandon), but also by any form of physical activity that gets the blood flowing, endorphins are a natural reward for the work you’ve done.

Recent research has also highlighted that giving—volunteering, donating or acting in service of your community—boosts endorphins through a natural “helper’s high.” And, regular meditation and yoga practice has been shown to contribute to the release of endorphins. Laughing, eating spicy foods (from the mild pain they prompt on the tongue) and treating yourself to dark chocolate (from its flavonoids) give a little boost too.
Serotonin THE SUPPORTER When our hearts beat faster through dance and movement, serotonin inspires calm, mindfulness and leaves us worry free. This powerful neurochemical is our natural mood stabilizer, directly impacting our sense of wellbeing and happiness.

Boosting serotonin levels can support and help with depression, anxiety, OCD, social anxiety, panic disorders and PTSD. Spending time outdoors, soaking in sun rays, getting your body moving with (at the very least) light exercise and eating a colorful,well-balanced diet full of whole foods and probiotics all contribute to increased serotonin production.

We engineer all our Joy Practices and member experiences to flood your brain-body with an organic, natural high.

All so we can be the place you can come home to every day and feel happy, connected, inspired and alive. Because you are worth it.

From Our Community

These are the voices of some of the humans who are still down to courageously connect and LIVE in this wild and brave new world...

The voices of your new global family.

This community is made of lovers, joy seekers, and above all, dancers. Dancers who dance like noone is watching... I never thought I was a dancer. I didn’t think I had rhythm. But what I’ve discovered since the first LIVE experience was that I love moving my body.

I feel better, and we’re not just talking physical health. My mental health DRAMATICALLY improves when and after I’m moving. Not just cardio. Not just yoga or pilates or strength training -- all of which I love. But dancing. This is my favorite way to exercise and express myself through movement. Turns out...I’m a dancer.

- Laura S.

I felt like I started to really work and address some things I have been holding on to. I have been stressed out with work, my health, and I am moving. I focused on the positive aspect of a fresh start.

- Danielle A.

These are such physically and spiritually energizing experiences and the "virtual" feels so real when on screen I see so many others participating and "in-joy-ing" at the same time.

- Tommye L.

I felt joyful!!!! Thank you for stirring the pot in my body, heart, and mind.

It's a daily practice that I don't always get to, so thank you for introducing D.O.S.E by Daybreaker!

- S. F.

D.O.S.E. by Daybreaker opened up my heart and mind to remember there is always a way to access joy and love and forgiveness.

- Helen I.
