97-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch Participates in XYoga Dubai Festival–The Largest Yoga Event in the Middle East

DAY 1  DAY 2  DAY 3  DAY 4

February 20, 2016–The last full day in Dubai started off with 97-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch receiving another massage at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex. Then, she taught a yoga session for the XYoga Dubai Festival. Once again, I demonstrated the postures and then we shared our popular Conversation with a Master talk and slideshow. It was very well-received as it has been in other places around the world like Slovenia and Montenegro. As always, there was a line of people to meet Tao and take pictures with her. It’s unbelievable that she had the energy to then do media interviews!

In the afternoon, I had the opportunity to do a little shopping while Tao rested. I was on the hunt for a couple of gifts for Tao and myself to give. Sheeraz, who was driving, took me to Old Dubai for a few things and then we went to Souk Al Bahar (“market of the sailor”) closer to the Manzil Downtown Dubai hotel.

Even if you’re not going to buy anything, a trip to Souk Al Bahar is worth it just for the stunning walkway, high archways and arabesque decor.

I now know the right places to get gorgeous shawls and delectable dates (food not people)! Below are some pictures from Day 4 of the trip. Click on each image to make it larger.
