Today is International Yoga Day. To celebrate it, more than 1,000 cast members came to the Disneyland Resort in the early hours of the morning to practice yoga together. The event was made even more magical with the fact that it was done as the sun rose during the session.
Throughout the year, cast members are offered multiple unique and exclusive opportunities like this by the Disneyland Resort. It was part of a bigger celebration by The Walt Disney Company for International Yoga Day. For the Disneyland Resort cast members, this one was made particularly special by getting to see the sunrise of Sleeping Beauty Castle as they practiced yoga together.
International Yoga Day is celebrated globally each year on June 21st. It first was celebrated in 2015. It was unanimously declared a holiday by the United Nations General Assembly. Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice which originated in India and is now practiced around the world.
