Despite being close to 100, a yoga teacher is still inspiring students who are a quarter of her age. Tao Porchon Lynch has been practicing yoga for more than 70 years and at the tender age of 96 she shows no signs of slowing down. Aged 85 Tao decided to take up ballroom dancing and is now putting her 26-year-old dance partner Vard Margaryn through his paces in her hometown of Westchester, New York. In spite of having undergone a full hip replacement and recently breaking her wrist, Tao believes that it’s her positive attitude that keeps her so young and agile.
