Saying that you’re too stiff or old to do yoga is like saying that you’re too dirty to take a bath.
What an inspiration Tao Porchon-Lynch is. Watch this 2-minute video to see her go. She is the oldest yoga teacher, according to ‘Guinness World Records’. She is 93 and has taught for 61 years. “I’m going to teach yoga until I can’t breathe anymore, then I’ll just fly away to the next planet.” I believe her!
Even a hip replacement hasn’t stopped her. ” I don’t want to know what I won’t be able to do because I don’t believe it,” is what she told her doctor when he told her that she would have to give up. She shocked him by sending a photograph of her in lotus lifting off the ground.
She became interested in yoga at 8 years old when she saw boys doing yoga in Pondicherry, India. She wanted to prove that she could do what the boys were doing. She now lives and teaches yoga outside of NYC in Hartsdale.
