With a Guinness World Record of being the World’s oldest Yoga Teacher, Tao has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 70 years. Most people around the world would consider it an opportunity of a lifetime to even get a glimpse of what she has to offer to the world. Since establishing the Westchester Institute of Yoga in 1982, Tao has trained students all over India, France, and the USA. The effervescent butterfly, Tao Porchon-Lynch is a living example of will, determination, positivity, and above all LIFE.
Tao’s Life Journey
HH Tao Porchon-Lynch grew up learning and practicing with personalities who are considered historical landmarks – Sri Aurobindo, Swami Prabhavananda, B.K.S. Iyengar and K. Pattabhi Jois. She practiced the art of meditation with none other than Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. When Tao didn’t believe she could be a yoga teacher, her faith was restored by the great Mataji Indra Devi who she later joined in participating at the Yoga for Peace Conference in Israel in 1995. Tao is also an activist, oenophilist and competitive ballroom dancer. Over her 75 years of professional life, she has been a model, film producer, dancer, international film distributor, actress, television executive, yoga practitioner and teacher, publisher and a co-founder of the American Wine Society. She has marched twice with the historical Mahatma Gandhi, including the famous 1930 Salt March, popularly known as the Dandi March. In 2015, she appeared on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent, a highly popular American TV reality show. The same year, popular news channel, ABC World News, named her the “real-life Forrest Gump”.
Tao was introduced to Yoga at a tender age of 8 when she encountered a group of young yoga enthusiasts practicing yoga. She was told by her aunt that she couldn’t learn or practice yoga as it is predominantly meant for men. Tao, true to her very instinctive nature, took this as a challenge and set out to not only learn but master the art form of Yoga as a woman and teach thousands of men and women around the world of the true wisdom and gift of yoga. Tao’s yoga philosophy and teachings are based on Vinyasa Yoga but her approach is unique in many ways – she believes and preaches that Vinyasa yoga is not just about mastering the art of linking physical movements; for one to master this art form, they must learn to link their heart and soul – their life-force. Her autobiography, Dancing Light: The Spiritual Side of Being Through the Eyes of a Modern Yoga Master, is an award winner for IPPY and International Book Awards for the year 2016.
