This is Tao Porchon-Lynch, the 91-year-old* yoga master and inspiration to us all! Watch the video via CNN Money (they did a story on America’s oldest workers).
“There is nothing you cannot do” These words are emblazoned across Lady Tao’s website.
Tao Porchon-Lynch, Master Yoga teacher, 91 years young, synthesizes the most positive aspects of Indian, European and American thought. Tao is uniquely equipped to spread Yogic insights, originating in India, to Westerners seeking enlightenment. She has trained and certified hundreds of yoga instructors, since founding the Westchester Institute of Yoga in 1982. Tao has over 60 years of yoga practice and more than 36 years of teaching yoga to students in India, France and the U.S.
AND she’s a competitive ballroom dancer! She’s overcome hip replacement surgery and warnings that she may not be able move like she used to. Good thing she ignored all of that. “I’m not going to give up,” Porchon-Lynch says. “I’m going to dance and do yoga for as long as I live.”
*confirmed she’s 91, her bday’s in August if you care to send wishes!
