International Yoga Day with Cast Members at Disney Parks Worldwide
Nearly 1,000 Disneyland Resort Cast Members celebrated International Yoga Day on June 21, 2018, in Anaheim, California. Only Disneyland Cast Members can watch the sun rise over Sleeping Beauty Castle while practicing yoga with friends.
One of the components to the magic of yoga is connection. This may be the connection we have to ourselves on our mat. It can also be the connection that takes place when we have the opportunity to share our practice with other people. Many people were brought by friends to the class and were trying yoga for the first time. And finding the magic.
Around the world, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, Shanghai Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort also participated in this year’s International Yoga Day.

Felicia Tomasko has spent more of her life practicing Yoga and Ayurveda than not. She first became introduced to the teachings through the writings of the Transcendentalists, through meditation, and using asana to cross-train for her practice of cross-country running. Between beginning her commitment to Yoga and Ayurveda and today, she earned degrees in environmental biology and anthropology and nursing, and certifications in the practice and teaching of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda while working in fields including cognitive neuroscience and plant biochemistry. Her commitment to writing is at least as long as her commitment to yoga. Working on everything related to the written word from newspapers to magazines to websites to books, Felicia has been writing and editing professionally since college. In order to feel like a teenager again, Felicia has pulled out her running shoes for regular interval sessions throughout Southern California. Since the very first issue of LA YOGA, Felicia has been part of the team and the growth and development of the Bliss Network.
