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

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

October 9, 2015–In 2012, Tao was named Oldest Yoga Teacher by Guinness World Records, and she still regularly teaches six to eight classes a week in addition to her dance lessons and other activities. Therefore, the trip to Slovenia would not be complete without yoga! So, on our last day, Tao taught two yoga classes–one at 7am and the other at 11am. Some of the attendees from the Conversation with a Master event hosted by the Young Executives Society (YES) and Mercedes changed their schedules–coming before work or taking an early lunch–to experience Tao’s teachings first-hand.

From traveling with Tao I’ve noticed that she receives energy from teaching yoga. She is already full of vitality yet her luminosity increases when she is taking command of the room adjusting students and helping them do things they never thought possible. She helps them to experience her mantra: There Is Nothing You Cannot Do. Tao says:

“In my head I am still in my ’20s and I’m never growing up!”

Tao has certainly unlocked the secrets to Peter Pan-like youthfulness. Being around her is a study in potentiality showing us all what is possible. She believes that what you put in your mind materializes and she constantly looks for the good. See this Huffington Post article, “Is 96 the New 22? Seven Secrets of Vitality From Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch.”and “96-Year-Old Tao Porchon-Lynch is ‘On Fire’ on America’s Got Talent.”At 97 years old, Tao has the stamina of someone decades younger.  After four days of continuous activity, we packed our bags and were headed off to Montenegro for the Age of Happiness Festival. Tao was a headliner and was greeted like a superstar! Before that craziness, we were glad to be able to spend the days before with my wonderful friends in Slovenia.

Thank you to our Slovenian hosts Matej Cer, Jan Pinteric, Til Lajovic, Anton Majhen, Breda Bozic and so many more from the YES and AvantCar teams. We’re also grateful for the coverage from 24UR.comPlanetSiol.net and the upcoming feature in The Good Life. If you’ve never been to Slovenia, you must visit Ljubljana–the 2016 European Green Capital–and then venture out to the coast and the mountains. I’m sure you will be as delighted as we were. Tao enjoyed herself so much that we are planning a yoga retreat and Teacher Training in Slovenia for Spring 2016. Keep your eyes out for it!
