I couldn't wait to share this brief video with you all!
Tao Porchon-Lynch was recently recognized as the world's oldest yoga teacher by the Guinness Book of World Records. Tao is much younger that her 93 calendar years!
Be inspired, Click on the video below to see her lift off in full lotus pose:
Here's to a mindful Yoga practice that evolves along with us, a practice we can do our whole lives.
Many thanks to all who came out this past weekend for the special classes I co-taught with Jessica Crow of Dharma Mittra Yoga, and Jennifer Sundeen of Durga Yoga. Thanks to you, our offerings were a great success, and Jessica boarded the train back to NYC with a beaming smile. She sends her gratitude.

oh, and a final note:
Here's a blast from the past, I posted a video of her back when she was 'just' 91, and now at 93, Tao has renewed my inspiration, What do you say we open a Yoga teachers and practitioners un-retirement community?

Check out the new pics from her photo shoot on Mothers day!
I know that you didn't award this woman the Guinness World record for being the oldest Yoga Teacher, but I wanted to pass on to you that I took a class last year in Rishikesh, India, with Swami Yogananda, who was 103 years old last year, therefore is now 104. He is still teaching most mornings in Rishikesh at 5am, and even travels for Yoga Workshops and Festivals.
Just wanted to let you know!
