I will go with inspirational, and trust it's a true story.

But, not to quash my cynical-self, anyone else note how well story-boarded this video is, like it was planned sequencially from the very beginning. The editing and production values are impressive, even the walk-on by the cat, and it's a great advertisement for Diamond Dallas Page [former pro-westler/entertainer] Yoga that sells itself via online products and the Tony Robbins sort of testimonials.

It's all just a little too neat and tidy to me. That said, I prefer 'believing is seeing' on seomthing like this, and will leave it with a "You rock Arthur" call-out.
