On Friday, March 27, 2015, I joined 96-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch at the 31st Annual Women’s Hall of Fame Awards and Scholarship Luncheon at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Tarrytown. Tao received a Special Tribute from the Women’s Research and Education Fund (WREF). The Mistress of Ceremonies was Elise Finch, meteorologist for WCBS-TV. Camille Failla Murphy, Executive Director of WREF, did so much to make this event happen. She couldn’t be in attendance and we hope she feels better.
On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, 96-year-old Yoga Master Tao Porchon-Lynch went to Paulsboro, NJ and did an interview with 93-year-old Suzanne Roberts for Seeking Solutions with Suzanne - a nationally broadcast daily and weekly information / entertainment show targeted to an older adult audience. Check back for the air date. Afterwards, Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy interviewed Suzanne and Tao together for Tao’s documentary, There Is Nothing You Cannot Do. Much thanks to our cinematographer, Eu-nah Lee for spending the (very long) day with us.
With warm waters, fresh fruits, friendly people and (nearly) perfect weather, the island of Jamaica is a slice of paradise. That was the setting for our writing retreat for 96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch’s upcoming inspirational memoir, Dancing Light: The Spiritual Side of Being Through the Eyes of a Modern Yoga Master. Check out the pictures from the December trip and then join Tao for a retreat in Jamaica from May 4th – 10th!!
THE BUZZ: On Tuesday, March 3, 2015, I had the honor of speaking on a panel for the 2015 American Heart Association Go Red Luncheon held at the New York Hilton Midtown. The educational breakout was entitled, “Finding Your Passion to Find Heart Health.” I shared the stage with a group of dynamic women including Agapi Stassinopoulos (bestselling author and speaker), Icilma V. Fergus, MD, FACC (Director of Cardiovascular Disparities at Mount Sinai Medical Center), MaryAnn Browning (Founder & President of Browning’s Fitness) and our moderator Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum (Director of Women’s Heart Health of Lenox Hill Hospital).
