Tao Porchon-Lynch (August 13, 1918 – February 21, 2020) was an American yoga master and award-winning author of French and Indian descent. Tao Porchon-Lynch is still a mentor to many who embodies the spirit of yoga and is an example of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind. Like yoga, she teaches us to let go and to have exquisite awareness in every moment.

Here are three of my favorite Tao Porchon-Lynch quotes about the beauty of nature and aging. Her precious words still resound in my mind.

“Yoga is the joining of our mind, body and

spirit. It is like nature, everything is always

recycled and brought full circle. I find that I

can heal myself if I do what nature does. It’s

taken away stress and has helped me through



“I watch the beauty of nature. It is telling me

that even the trees get more beautiful as they



“One hundred year old trees still recycle

themselves and come out with new flowers.

Recycle yourself. Know that nature gives you

the clues to living.”
