At 8:30 a.m. on a recent Monday morning, Tao Porchon-Lynch, recognized by the Guinness World Records as the “World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher” in 2012, waltzed into the Fred Astaire Studio in Hartsdale for a yoga class wearing a fur coat and black stilettos.
A few months shy of turning 100 years old, Porchon-Lynch could easily be the most interesting woman on earth. (Sorry Dos Equis: she doesn’t do beer, only wine).
The founder of the Westchester Institute of Yoga took up ballroom dancing at age 87 and has won more than 750 first-place awards as a competitive dancer. At age 96, she appeared on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” receiving a standing ovation from the judges.
