Meet Tao Porchon-Lynch, the 98-year-old yoga instructor who just became my new hero! She has been practicing yoga for the past 75 years and recently made a little video for Athleta where she shared her wisdom on happiness, yoga and life in general.
Besides the obvious, the incredible truth is that Tao is the true example of what our life can become if we make a conscious effort to be happy, healthy and balanced…
Here is a little yoga tip that she shared in one the follow-up interviews and it really stuck with me:
'If you do postures without the breathing you will never change anything...When people are known to breathe properly they can survive and do anything. Nothing is impossible when you are in tune with your breath'.
P.S: Have you seen her TEDx talk from a few years ago? Brilliant! Plus, tons more on this wonderful lady here...
P.P.S: A beautiful GIVEAWAY is coming up later today!
