French and Indian yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch passed away Friday morning, as announced on her Instagram page.

The Insta read, “With great sorrow and heavy hearts, we are writing to let you know that our beloved Tao passed away this morning.  As she would say, she is now dancing her way to the next planet.”

Porchon-Lynch found her love for yoga when she was just 8 years old. Over the coming decades she inspired hundreds of people around the world with her yoga lessons, and with her excellent book: Reflections: The Yogic Journey Of Life.

The extremely talented Porchon-Lynch was also an excellent dancer, as was seen in her addition for the 2015 America’s Got Talent. She held the Guinness World Record for oldest competitive ballroom dancer. She was also a voice for good. She once marched with Mahatma Gandhi. And later she found a new inspiration: preserving endangered wildlife, particularly elephants.

Porchon-Lynch’s family left the following comment on her Instagram page:    “What an incredible woman. You continue to live on in all of us ❤️✨,” one user wrote, while another wrote: “This is so sad. I loved following her and looked up at her, her way of living the life and loving.”

We here at THE DAILY MEDITATION will be meditating today to send love to Porchon-Lynch and to express gratitude for everything she did for yoga and for the world. We invite you to join us.
