Session 2

The Eternal Energy of Yoga: A Master Yoga Class

20 December (Wednesday) 7pm–9pm

Join 99-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch in a once-in-a-lifetime experience as she leads a yoga master class. Still able to defy gravity in poses, Tao started yoga at 8 years old in India and embodies the principles in a very modern and accessible way. In addition to first-hand influence from Mahatma Gandhi and Indra Devi, Tao studied with a Who’s Who of the Spiritual World including Sri Aurobindo, Swami Prabhavananda, Dr. Roman Ostoja, B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and the Maharishi.

Session 3

The Gandhi Effect: Transform Yourself and the World Around You

21 December (Thursday) 7pm–9pm

Transform Yourself and the World Around You debuted to a standing room only audience at the 2011 Newark Peace Education Summit that headlined His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Using the teachings of Gandhi as the backdrop, 99-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch and Harvard-trained empowerment coach Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy will share insights and practical tools for personal transformation. Gandhi believed that all people can shape and guide their lives according to the highest ideals, and that personal change and the ability to bring about social change are linked. Through intention and conscious action, we can collectively prepare the ground for “the world of tomorrow”, today.
