97-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch takes Slovenia by storm!

DAY 1    DAY 2    DAY 3A    DAY 3B    DAY 4

October 7, 2015–After a wonderful night’s sleep and delectable breakfast at Hotel Slon, Day 2 in Ljubljana started off with an interview for The Good Life magazine. Instead of a photograph, an artist will do a painting of Tao for the article’s lead image. We’re looking forward to that!

Tao and I had a moment to relax at the cafe next to the hotel and then met my friends for lunch. All of the food was healthy and delicious–from the vegetarian butternut squash soup to pastries made with splet flour (even though it was not gluten-free, I appreciated the option). After our leisurely lunch, we headed to the Young Executives Society (YES) office.

The Young Executives Society hosts coaching programs, workshops and events for up-and-coming entrepreneurs in Slovenia.

We joined one of their coaching sessions and I moderated an intimate discussion with Tao on her life and philosophy. The participants seemed to appreciate her perspective. In addition to her inspirational philosophy There Is Nothing You Cannot Do, she touched upon issues such as follow-through, procrastination and handling disappointments. Although she doesn’t call herself an “entrepreneur,” she certainly was one from the 1950s on. She was an early international film distributor and for 30 years published The Beverage Communicator, one of the first three wine newspapers in America. It was distributed in over 47 countries outside of the United States and Canada, and had advertisers from all over. That’s impressive for anyone–and extraordinary for a woman at that time! Learn more in Tao’s new book.

Friends Matej Cer, Jan Pinteric, Til Lajovic, Breda Bozic, and Anton Majhen, and others were there at the YES office. Anton led the workshop and then received individual instruction from Tao on breathing and energy chakras–something he greatly appreciated as a psychotherapist and accomplished martial artist. He is highly respected and even trained the Special Forces!

In the lobby of Hotel Slon there was complimentary sparkling wine which Tao enjoyed as a respected wine connoisseur and a co-founder of the American Wine Society. She is looking forward to sharing her impressions of Slovenian wine in her next wine appreciation event in New York. After dinner, we topped off the evening with homemade ice cream from Vigo Ice Cream. With her love of high heels, wine and ice cream, Tao is indeed a modern yoga master! Here are some pictures from Day 2 of the trip. Remember to click on each image to make it larger.
