World's Oldest Yoga Teacher is 98

By Robert Paul Reyes

"She is the `World`s Oldest Yoga Teacher` who, at age 98, still teaches five classes a week. But above all, Tao Porchon-Lynch is a poster child for health and positivity in a world obsessed by wellness and longevity.

The former model and Hollywood contract actress -- who earned her title from Guinness World Records -- still has a delicate, slender physique.
Once in the studio, she happily demonstrates yoga poses, even if she sometimes calls on one of her dedicated students to show off others."

I`m sorry but if a yoga teacher is so old that when she is demonstrating a yoga position you wonder if she is displaying fine form or if rigor mortis has set in, it`s time for that yoga instructor to hang up her yoga pants for good.

Tao should be doing the downward-facing dog next to Jack LaLane performing calisthenics in heaven, her work here on Earth in done.
