Another Way of Living.
When you do what you love the $ will follow.
And Tao sure lives up to that and vibrantly.
Today I feel inspired by so many things.
The weather-is good.
Exercising- endorphins galore!
Just a little bit of hope that we don’t have to decline
as our bodies age.
Exercise, good foods, balance, fun, laughter, giving to
others, persistence, perseverence, and always learning
are just a few things that keep you young.
I have to start yoga soon-
Tao gives me inspiration!
Perhaps yoga is the secret to a happy old-age?
Even after a total hip replacement in the early 2000s,
Tao Porchon-Lynch continues to teach students yoga
at 5am everyday.
The energetic 93-year-old, from Westchester,
who has been practicing yoga for over 70 years
also does the waltz, jitterbug, samba and
cha cha cha in her spare time.
‘I also like to do foxtrot – all the crazy ones,’
she laughs, describing dancing the tango as
being like drinking champagne.
After practicing yoga in her youth in India
the former model and actress moved to the
US when she was in her early 30s.
After a career in Hollywood movies and on
television Porchon-Lynch began working
with UniTel in the 1960s, establishing
TV stations in India.
She has since been teaching yoga to
students in India, France, and the USA
for more than 45 years including
certifying 400 other teachers.
‘I do yoga before I go to bed and I do
yoga with my students when I get up
in the morning,’ she said.
‘I’m up every morning at 5 o’clock and I usually go to bed around midnight.’
ts just a matter of putting your mind on it.’
The yogi also leads trips to India, where she estimates she has been at least 25 times.
‘There’s so much to learn and I just feel I don’t have enough time to learn everything,’ the inspirational Porchon-Lynch says.
‘The greatest thrill that you can really have is to see someone who says I cant do it and show them they can.’
Porchon-Lynch has just published her first book, Reflections: The Yogic Journey Of Life.
Following a total hip replacement when she was 84 years old, doctors said her flexibility would never be the same.
Proving them wrong, she has since taken up ballroom dancing.
‘I’m very stubborn about it. When people say it cant be done, I have to do it.’
LIVE LONG and PROSPER!
The Season 1 premier is coming Tuesday of the reality show we filmed in Thailand.
