In her artistically filmed four-minute video, What is Yoga, Canadian yoga teacher Allie McLaughlin shares the story of how yoga has transformed her life. Allie began practicing yoga purely for its physical benefits, but as her practice deepened she began to realize yoga was impacting her off the mat as well.
Allie came to understand that she could choose where to direct her energy, and says yoga was the catalyst that helped her shift her focus toward self, family, and purpose. She tells us, “You can’t change things, but you can change how you react to them.”
