Did you know, today is International Yoga Day! Disney encourages all of us Disney fans to stay healthy. So, today, we get to yoga with Mickey via a video below. Plus, you’ll find several Cast Members promoting self-care and wellness. Check it out as shared by DisneyParksBlog!

Today, just as dawn breaks at Shanghai Disneyland Resort, the park gates will open for more than 200 cast members to join Mickey Mouse and Disney Ambassadors, Fiona and Eleven, for sunrise yoga in front of the Enchanted Storybook Castle.

Over at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, yoga enthusiast and entertainment and costuming cast member Mandy led a virtual yoga class for cast members. Meanwhile, Disney Ambassador Melody encouraged cast from all over the resort to take part in the wellness celebration from the comfort of their homes! 

While our Disney family at the other parks are busy preparing for reopening, we didn’t want our cast to miss out on the celebrations! That’s why we created ways to help them recreate our annual events from home. Disneyland Paris cast celebrated with a virtual yoga instruction facilitated by renowned yoga instructor Tara Stiles. This week at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort, cast have access to yoga activities with different digital classes taking place each day. From introductory yoga for beginners to classes focusing on defined techniques like Restorative and Hatha yoga – there’s something for every cast member!

“It is a day that reminds us to slow down, breathe, and focus our attention inward,” shared. Dr. Hymel. “Now more than ever, it’s important for us to focus on our wellbeing.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
