Event Description: 

Join DOROT Westchester for a morning with renowned 99-year old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch. To begin the event, Tao will lead the group in a yoga class—accessible to those at all levels. Following the class, she will share her journey through multiple continents as a World War II French Resistance fighter, actress, model, producer, author, activist, and entrepreneur, while teaching her approach to overcoming obstacles and living mindfully.

 

At 99, Tao is the world’s oldest yoga instructor. She still teaches six to eight classes a week and leads programs across the globe. Once coined a “real-life Forrest Gump,” she has participated in countless historic events over nearly a century. Tao has crossed paths with the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, General Charles de Gaulle, Ernest Hemingway, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Fred Astaire. Since founding the Westchester Institute of Yoga in 1982, Tao has trained and certified hundreds of yoga instructors. 

 

Light refreshments will be served between the class and the conversation; attendees should bring a yoga mat. The couvert for this event is $50. Register online at dorotusa.org/master.
