An inspirational story of courage, caution and perseverance and humor. Facing a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis head on, McLean takes us on a journey from the fast-paced life of Hollywood to Canada to India and the feet of yoga master BKS Iyengar. McLean’s journey is transformational for all. Looking for Lightning honours the legacy of BKS Iyengar as part of global celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of Iyengar’s birth and profound contribution to humanity. This piece has been created to raise awareness and provide hope of living well with multiple sclerosis.
