Meet The 100-Year-Old Yoga Instructor Who Has No Plans Of Stopping

Age is truly just a number for Tao Porchon-Lynch. Though she may be a 100-years-old, the Padma Shri Award-winning yoga instructor from New York has no plans to stop practicing and teaching.Of Indian and French descent, Ms Porchon-Lynch first encountered yoga at the age of seven in India,  She came across the sight of a group of boys doing yoga poses on a beach, and was transfixed.

When her aunt told her that the movements were not "ladylike," she retorted, "If boys can do it, I can do it."By the time she was a teenager, Ms Porchon-Lynch was already teaching yoga.

"Yoga can be the joy of life, and it's not just about putting our bodies into specific postures," she says to Yoga Journal. "It's about expressing what comes from inside of you and showing up when you meet other people to create a oneness."

Today, despite four hip replacements, she is unstoppable. Not only yoga, she also does ballroom dancing at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio."I don't feel any different now that I've turned 100. I'm not even scared. And I'll never stop practicing yoga-it's the dance of life!" she concludes.
