92 Year Old Has Done Yoga Her Whole Life

Porchon Lynch, became interested in yoga as a child when girls weren’t supposed to do it. She has been teaching yoga for 42 years and at 92 years of age is still teaching. Watching this video it is easy to forget she is 92. She still has all of her faculties and is even doing difficult yoga postures. Inspiring!

I’ve been seeing a lot of videos of 70 something weightlifting enthusiasts still going strong. I wrote that off as being a gift resulting from devoting yourself toward being a gym rat.   However, I remember from my own yoga practice that I could easily spend several hours a day doing yoga and that I could also hurt myself doing yoga. So, perhaps being a regular weightlifter isn’t anymore of an impingement upon a working person’s life than yoga.

Wow, still, 92 and being that functional, as well as still being able to do something physical she loves.  Inspiring!
