The NY Times profiled Täo Porchon-Lynch of Hartsdale, New York, this week and the article has been shared tens of thousands of times. Tao is 98 and as active as an 8 year old.
Yoga teacher, world traveler, ballroom dancer – inspiration is an understatement. She has brightly colored nails, wears high heels and big clip-on earrings, and drives herself around in her Smart car, and the dancing is with men 75 years her junior who say they can’t keep up. Ha! She hates water, doesn’t drink it. Only wine and tea. She even founded the American Wine Society with her late husband in 1967.
A few years ago, photos of her in flexible positions made her a social media sensation. She’s since been featured in ads for companies like Athleta and has appeared on America’s Got Talent.
New Year’s Resolution: yoga.
