This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Be inspired by yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch’s indomitable spirit, philosophy of Oneness, and incredible life, from marching with Mahatma Gandhi to modeling for Coco Chanel. Walking on stage with her signature high heels and easing into a full raised Lotus position, Tao makes us all believe “There is nothing you cannot do!”
Millions across the globe have been inspired by 95-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch: World World II activist, model, film star, wine connoisseur, ballroom dancer, and one of the oldest yoga teachers in the world. She started dancing competitively in her 80s and has received almost 600 first place awards. The spark in her eyes and child-like smile immediately capture you, yet her lean frame belies the strength in her body, mind and spirit.
Later on, Porchon-Lynch, now a married woman, found herself becoming more serious in yoga. Having studied with yoga greats Sri Aurobindo and Indra Devi, she abandoned her acting job in 1967, deciding to become a full-time yogi. Jack LaLanne was the first to hire her to teach yoga. In 1976, she became one of the founders of the Yoga Teachers Alliance, now known as the Yoga Teachers Association. She based her operations in New York and set up the Westchester Institute of Yoga in 1982, which now has a students from all over the world. In 1995, with Indra Devi, she flew to Israel to attend the Yoga for Peace International Peace Conference. Porchon-Lynch has also been one of B. K. S. Iyengar‘s disciples in yoga and reportedly the first “foreign” student of his.
Porchon-Lynch has embraced her age and carried her yoga with her. She has mentioned, “I’m going to teach yoga until I can’t breathe anymore.” She received the Guinness World Records title of world’s oldest yoga teacher from Berniece Bates in May 2012. Porchon-Lynch was 93 when she broke the world record. In 2013, in collaboration with Tara Stiles, she released a DVD on yoga, titled Yoga with Tao Porchon-Lynch. In addition, she published a book about meditation, titled Reflections: The Yogic Journey of Life.
