Tao Porchon-Lynch: still teaching yoga and dancing at 96!

If you watch America’s Got Talent, you may already be familiar with 96-year-old ballroom dancer, Tao Porchon-Lynch, who took up dance at age 87.  If not, here is a video of one of her recent amazing performances with her 26-year-old dance partner!

But what you might not yet know is that Porchon-Lynch is also considered “the world’s oldest yoga teacher,” and she credits 50+ years of yoga teaching and her determined spirit with keeping her healthy and active as she has aged.  As one of her students says in this short video, “she is the epitome of strength and energy.”

Porchon-Lynch inspires us to continue our practice for decades to come!  Many thanks to Shirley Dammeyer for calling this amazing woman to our attention!
