Tao in San Francisco for Athleta

Tao is a very special woman and I’ve had the honor of both teaching for and with her, and have had her teachings… The people of the younger generations really have to look at a person like Tao who has weathered so much in her life and has come out the other side of her life still completely pure of Love and Laughter and Light.
Rodney Yee, Acclaimed Yoga Teacher
I want to BE Tao! What she has done, who she is and the light that’s in her eyes… When you say hello to her, she is just so full of Light and Love and mischievousness… I just think she is an inspiration for women and all of mankind.
Colleen Saidman, Acclaimed Yoga Teacher
One of the most acclaimed yoga teachers of our century, Tao Porchon-Lynch at 96 years is a mentor to me who embodies the spirit of yoga and is an example of Ageless Body Timeless Mind. Like yoga, she teaches us to let go and to have exquisite awareness in every moment.
Dr. Deepak Chopra, Prominent Alternative Medicine Advocate
When I look at her life, I think, “How can one person do it all?” and she says everyone can do it as long as you can harness the power within you!
Sushmita Sen, Former Miss Universe and Indian Film Actress
Through her mastery of Yoga and the body mind spirit connection, Tao helps us unbind the limits of our human condition in a most gentle and spirit filled way. She is a gift to us all. This book captures her magic.
Agapi Stassinopoulos, Author of Unbinding the Heart
All you have to do is be in Tao Porchon Lynch’s presence to feel the energy of her spirit and the wisdom in her eyes. To have a book which allows us to enter this amazing woman’s life is a gift to us all. She is a living example of how we can all learn to live life to the fullest and to truly live from the heart- mind, body, spirit and soul. She is a precious commodity and we are so lucky to understand who she is and how she became that way!
Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, Cardiologist, TV Host and Author of Heart Book
Tao has been a role model to all of us who have been practicing yoga since the early 70’s. She is a brilliant example of the health and well being that can come with a lifetime of yoga practices. Her grace, compassion, service to the yoga community, and zest for life have inspired me for years, as well as thousands of young souls just stepping on to the yoga path.
Beryl Bender Birch, Founder, The Hard & Soft Yoga Institute
