97-Year-Old Yoga Instructor

This 97-Year-Old Woman Is Proof That Yoga Has No Age Bounds

Being a yogi has no age limits, and this 97-year-old woman is proof. Tao-Porchon Lynch is an inspirational yoga instructor approaching nearly 100 years in age. In a heartening photo posted by The New York Times, Tao shares that she began practicing yoga at 8 years old. She has since undergone three hip replacement surgeries, but roughly 90 years later, she continues to share her passion for yoga by teaching beginner and advanced classes in Scarsdale, NY. Tao credits her incredible drive to the simple fact that there is still so much left to learn. Her yoga history is proof that you are never too old to do and share the activities you love.
