  1. Thank you, Margaret. These stories are inspirational. I wanted to ask, do you know Tao Porschon-Lynch. She reached 96 this year and is still teaching. I didn’t want to do yoga out of pure stuborness – seems that everybody does yoga, because of that there is no way, i’ll do it. But I had to watch a video about Tao, actually I watched several of them, I watched all I could find on You Tube, and she convinced me :)
    Especially I like her 96 years birthday party video She is amazing.
