92 year-old yoga teacher expresses her positive physical and spiritual outlook on life

Living life with totality truly shows in Tao Porchon-Lynch, an incredible sprightly and limber 92 year-old Master Yoga teacher from the USA. Not even a hip replacement deterred her from continuing to practice and teach yoga to this day. Joy shows in her youthful face as she demonstrates how to breathe and move with boundless energy…

She found out about yoga as a child living in Pondicherry, India, and knew instinctively that this is what she was going to do. She studied with Indra Devi, Aurobindo and Iyengar and has been teaching for more than 40 years. Yet she smilingly says, “I am a yoga beginner, I am still learning….”

She calls yoga “the dance of life within us,” and quite humbly states, “I have learned as much from my students as I have from the masters.”

She is absolutely certain that we can recycle our body and get energy moving through, and that the most important thing is to keep going and not to stagnate. When she says, “Inside of me is the creation of life and if I can awaken that inside of me, there is nothing I cannot do,” you know she means it!
