97-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch Shares Her Story at White Plains Library

January 17, 2016–The inspirational and historical life of 97-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch as shared in her new autobiography, Dancing Light: The Spiritual Side of Being Through the Eyes of a Modern Yoga Master, can now be found at the White Plains Library in Westchester, New York. The library purchased copies of the Hardcover Symth Sewn bound book for their readers to enjoy and hosted a “Conversation with a Master” event moderated by Harvard-trained empowerment coach and co-author Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy.

Over 75 people came out on this frigid Sunday afternoon and were warmed by Tao’s engaging stories and insights. From marching with Mahatma Gandhi and helping Jews escape the Nazis during World War II to modeling for top couture designers like Coco Chanel and more recently dancing on America’s Got Talent, Tao embodies her mantra, There Is Nothing You Cannot Do. Her energy and vitality prompt anyone who comes into her presence to fully embrace life. White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach, who had previously presented Tao with a proclamation, stopped by to share a few words:

I was actually just poking my head in to see Tao. We already awarded a day to her previously but she’s probably due another one! As you all have already heard, she’s a remarkable woman and we’re very proud to have her as a resident of her city. Thank you for presenting today. You have a nice turnout and it’s just wonderful. Thank you so much for everything you do.

The multimedia talk has been presented to diverse audiences across America at yoga studios and universities to conferences and business forums in cities such as Delaware, Rochester, Phoenix and Kansas City, and around the world in places like Slovenia, Montenegro and the Bahamas. There was also a star-studded book launch in Mumbai, India in December 2015 hosted by acclaimed dancer Sandip Soparrkar. In addition to Sandip, many notables provided book endorsements including Dr. Deepak Chopra, David Swenson, Agapi Stassinopoulos, Rodney Yee, Colleen Sandman Yee, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, Rama Jyoti Vernon, Beryl Bender Birch, Sushmita Sen, Hema Malini, Zeenat Aman, Robert Sturman, John P. Mirrione and Valerie Romanoff.

Much thanks to Karyn De Luca and Sharon Rothman at the White Plains Library for making the event possible, and for Sharon’s daughter Rachel for taking some of the wonderful pictures as well as Joyce Pines for taking care of book sales. It is a delight to have the book in the library and we are looking forward to seeing it in other branches. In addition to high quality Symth Sewn binding, this hardcover edition has library grade paper which is supposed to last 400 years. Under the glossy dust jacket is an image of Tao embossed in gold color on a rich red cloth cover. The Library of Congress Control Number is 2015947471 and ISBN is 978-1-942-51000-0. The book can be purchased directly at www.powerlivingmedia.com.
