Aging Well – Happy Birthday Tao Porchon-Lynch

Tao Porchon-Lynch
Yoga teacher Tao Porchon-Lynch, who celebrated her 95th birthday last week, has just released her first yoga DVD.

I’ll sometimes ask my yoga students to guess her age. Most guess 70s or early 80s.

A Yoga Journal birthday tribute quotes her advice to those who hope to keep up their yoga practice into their 90s?: “There is no such thing as ‘age.’ Tune into the power of the eternal, and feel the beauty of life. Nothing is impossible. Yoga revitalizes us with every breath we take.”

Order her video on Amazon.com Yoga with Tao Porchon-Lynch.

And visit her website to read her biography, watch interviews, and see photos of her doing competitive ballroom dancing.

Deepak Chopra used three words to describe 93-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch: Satyam (truth), Shivam (goodness), and Sundaram (beauty). The Johnson & Johnson Health Channel features her in a new video.

Other YouTube videos include an interview about her life and philosophy, her 93rd birthday party and book signing, a panel discussion (including the Dalai Lama), and dancing the tango.

Her new book, Reflections The Yogic Journey of Life, is available on Amazon.com.

Aging Well — Tao Porchon-Lynch

Growing Old Gracefully

I think Tao Porchon-Lynch redefines “growing old gracefully.”

Recently, she was profiled by Bruce Frankel in his book, What Should I Do with the Rest of My Life?: True Stories of Finding Success, Passion, and New Meaning in the Second Half of Life. An excerpt about Tao appears on Frankel’s website.
