“She is the `World`s Oldest Yoga Teacher` who, at age 98, still teaches five classes a week. But above all, Tao Porchon-Lynch is a poster child for health and positivity in a world obsessed by wellness and longevity.
The former model and Hollywood contract actress — who earned her title from Guinness World Records — still has a delicate, slender physique.
Once in the studio, she happily demonstrates yoga poses, even if she sometimes calls on one of her dedicated students to show off others.”
I`m not exactly lithe and limber, even in my prime I couldn`t touch my toes. I have nothing but respect for a 98-year-old woman who teaches yoga.
But I would by psychologically traumatized for life if a nonagenarian wearing Lululemon yoga pants demonstrated the Kapotasana yoga position before my tender eyes.
I`m sorry but if a yoga teacher is so old that when she is demonstrating a yoga position you wonder if she is displaying fine form or if rigor mortis has set in, it`s time for that yoga instructor to hang up her yoga pants for good.
Tao should be doing the downward-facing dog next to Jack LaLane performing calisthenics in heaven, her work here on Earth in done.
