Arrow Thin Left Icon Arrow Thin Right Icon

“Yoga is a dance within…and then something inside you grows so big, it spills out like champagne, that’s when you dance on the outside.” – Tao Porchon-Lynch

At 97, Tao Porchon-Lynch is the world's oldest Yoga teacher. Having lived with Yoga for over 70 years, she embodies sat-chit-ananda (existence-consciousness-bliss) effortlessly.

What are the biggest lessons we can learn from this lifelong yogi?


What is sat-chit-ananda? It's a sublimely blissful experience of boundless, pure consciousness that illuminates the path to enlightenment, providing a glimpse and connection to the ultimate reality.


Don't procrastinate

Whatever you want to do with your life, do it today. Don't wait for tomorrow because we can never know for certain whether tomorrow will come. Bask in the bliss of today instead of banking on the arrival of tomorrow to truly start living your life.

Commit wholeheartedly 

When you choose to believe in something, whatever that something may be, commit to it wholeheartedly. Know that you have the power within you to do anything you commit your heart to. As the saying goes, talk is cheap, so go out and practice what you preach.

“I don’t want to know what I can’t do. I’m only interested in what I can do.” – Tao Porchon-Lynch

Make a conscious effort to let go of negativity, worry and concerns over situations you can't control. Stress and worry have a strange way of materializing themselves into reality if left unchecked for too long. Instead, focus your energy on good vibes, good people and fond memories. Remember, some of the best moments of our lives haven't happened yet. 

"Don't look at life as if it was some dreary thing. Learn to see the wonders of nature—and know that the wonder of nature lies within you too. Be constantly on the move, enjoy every experience. Don't wake up with fear in your mind." – Tao Porchon-Lynch

Many things can go wrong, but many things can also go right 

"What if" scenarios are the killers of joy and occupy precious space in your mind. There's no use in conjuring up situations of what could have been or what could still be, but instead use your consciousness to focus on what is. 

Good things do happen

Even if it may not seem so to you in the moment, know that good things will be coming your way if you choose to accept the process of getting there. Setbacks exist because they hold within them important lessons for us. View them as opportunities, not disasters. Exist in the current moment and revel in the space you occupy at this time. 

Breathe. Relax. Enjoy.
