99-year-old Yoga Master and Competitive Ballroom Dancer Tao Porchon-Lynch on LIVE with Kelly & Ryan - September 13, 2017

Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch Shines on LIVE with Kelly & Ryan

September 13, 2017 – Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch spent the morning at the ABC Networks in New York appearing on LIVE with Kelly & Ryan. This was her first time meeting Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest and she was delighted! She said they were both fun and genuine. Watch it below.

 ABC sent a car for Tao and put her up overnight at The Pearl Hotel in Manhattan since it was an early call. The actress Julianne Moore was scheduled to appear on the show before Tao and she asked to meet Tao. They talked about yoga and Tao showed her a massage technique for her hands to boost energy and vitality. Julianne had taken a class with one of Tao’s dearest friends, Ashtanga yoga teacher David Swenson. Perhaps she will come and take a class with Tao in Hartsdale!

During the walk-through, Ryan Seacrest came out to meet Tao and talk about what they were going to do together. He got down on the mat and did some yoga with Tao. Then, they did a promo for the local stations. Ryan is very natural and obviously has a fun personality. Tao met Kelly Ripa when she walked onto the live show. They instantly hugged and the chemistry was wonderful. I have actually seen Kelly at the gym over the years so I could see she appreciated Tao’s physicality at 99 years old.

Both Kelly and Ryan are pros and truly good at what they do. They led the conversation, did yoga with Tao, and even mentioned her award-winning autobiography, Dancing Light: The Spiritual Side of Being Through the Eyes of a Modern Yoga Master, which I co-authored with my mom Janie Sykes-Kennedy. After the live show went off, Kelly and Tao were talking like old-time girlfriends.

It all came about when Tao met producer Michael Gelman at an Athleta store. David Mullen, who works with Gelman at ABC, reached out and coordinated the details. It happened fast and all went so smoothly. After the show, Michael and Tao did a Facebook Live chat along with some yoga. Tao commented that Michael “does good yoga.” He was right there with her in a full Lotus, Shoulder Stand and everything else.
