The Eternal Energy of Yoga: A Master Yoga Class with 99-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Still able to defy gravity in poses, Tao started yoga at 8 years old in India and embodies the principles in a very modern and accessible way. In addition to first-hand influence from Mahatma Gandhi and Indra Devi, Tao studied with a Who’s Who of the Spiritual World including Sri Aurobindo, Swami Prabhavananda, Dr. Roman Ostoja, B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and the Maharishi. In this immersive “on-the-mat” session, participants will: Use the four pillars of yoga: pranayama (breath work), mudras (gestures), bandhas (energetic locks) and chakras (energy centers) to explore the rich potential of the body to renew, heal and revitalize. Practice Tao’s special “yoga tango” integrating breath, movement and music, and experience a deeply absorbing meditation–inspiring compassion and inner peace. Learn Tao’s “secrets” to vitality and boundless energy via techniques that are not taught elsewhere. Have the opportunity to ask questions only hindsight and living history can answer. Participants will walk away inspired, strengthened and renewed–ready to energize their yoga practice and craft a vibrant “Tao-like” life! Tao has taught around the world and across the United States at places like the Pentagon, Integral Yoga Institute New York, Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, as well as local yoga studios such as YogaWorks in New York, Urban Yoga in Phoenix and Mark Blanchard’s Yoga Kansas City (see blog post).
