97 and Still Practicing Yoga...I want to do that!!!
For those of you that know me you know that I LOVE yoga. So when I was given the chance to take a master class with a 97 year-old yoga teacher, Tao Porchon-Lynch. I had to take it! I had to see with my own eyes this amazing woman who still practices yoga. I wanted to know what it will look like when I am 97 and I am practicing yoga too (smile).
When I walked I couldn't even see Tao Porchon-Lynch she was surrounded by so many people. As they moved away from her so she could start class there stood at about 4'9 the cutest grandmother looking lady with a big smile and a twinkle in her eye. She was radiating love and light to us all.
She gave some great tips to help me deepen my practice, and I suspect everyone else's too. It was awesome that she was also very fond of my yoga studio, Buddha B Yoga! It is an honor to know that place that practice, the place that I feel safe and supported and loved is a place that radiates love and light to others too. I'm so glad that Tao Porchon-Lynch feels Buddha B Yoga has love to share too!
Tao Porchon-Lynch has had a wonderful life and she has shared some of her stories while she was teaching us in class. I can't wait to hear more about her incredible life. She is awesome here is a clip to learn more about her.
It was a gift for me to spend time with her. What a blessing!
