June 21 marks International Yoga Day and to celebrate, our Disney
Parks, Experiences and Products cast members participated in special cast-exclusive
yoga events at our parks around the world. These events continue our commitment
to deliver unique experiences for cast and to encourage healthy living and
self-care, while supporting cast member balance and wellness.
From watching the sunrise over Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland park, to a virtual session that was out of this world, take a peek at the celebrations held around the globe.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort cast members gathered at Disney
Explorers Lodge for an early morning yoga session to celebrate International
Yoga Day. The lush and serene setting of the lodge set the scene for some
peaceful yoga poses.

Lawn for a mid-morning session.

best warrior poses in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Cinderella Castle, which recently received a royal makeover
ahead of Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th celebration, set the stage

Amidst the hustle and bustle of its recent reopening,
Disneyland Paris cast members still found time to squeeze in a yoga session at
several locations around Disneyland Paris before it reopened to guests on June
17. Disneyland Paris Ambassador Giona Prevete joined in the fun with a session
in front of Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy.
On the heels of Shanghai Disney Resort’s 5th anniversary, cast
