Back by popular demand, Porchon-Lynch will discuss how we can tune into the power of the eternal and discover that nothing is impossible and there is no such thing as "age." Using the four pillars of yoga—pranayama, mudras, bandhas, and chakras—she will explore with participants the rich potential of the body to renew, heal, and revitalize. Susan Douglass, a long-time student of Tao’s, will share her Aspirational Yoga Dances, choreographed to music by John Guth. Aspirational Yoga is a fusion of yoga and dance that delights body and spirit. Students will experience both the joy of dance and the bliss of yoga.
Copies of Tao’s autobiography, Dancing Light, will be available for purchase and signing.
Millions across the globe have been inspired by Tao Porchon-Lynch—World War II French Resistance fighter, model, actress, film producer, wine connoisseur, ballroom dancer, and yoga master. Named “Oldest Yoga Teacher” by Guinness World Records in 2012, Tao exemplifies her mantra, “There is Nothing You Cannot Do.” Tao started yoga at age 8, and her teachers were a Who’s Who of the Spiritual World—from the Maharishi to BKS Iyengar and K. Pattabhi Jois. Founder of the Westchester Institute of Yoga in 1982, she has certified over 1,600 teachers. At the age of 87, Tao became a competitive ballroom dancer and has since won over 700 First Place Awards. She has shared her wisdom through many methods and at multitudinous venues, which include speaking at the Newark Peace Education Summit with his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, teaching yoga at the Pentagon, and giving a TEDx talk at Columbia University.
