Tao’s 95th Birthday Party

Tao Porchon-Lynch at her 95th Birthday Bash

THE BUZZ: On Sunday, August 11th, 2013, I attended the 95th Birthday party for yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch. It was held at the Taj Palace Restaurant in White Plains, NY.

Tao’s party has become an annual tradition. So many people who have been touched by Tao’s life come out to celebrate her. We have great food, touching tributes and Tao dances. This year, my family joined me which was an extra treat. I am honored to be co-writing Tao’s biography with my mom, journalist Janie Sykes-Kennedy.
