This 98-Year-Old Yoga Instructor Puts the Rest of Us to Shame Aired January 23, 2017

Tao Porchon-Lynch is 98 years old and has been practicing the art of yoga for 90 years. She teaches yoga to those of all ages, all around the globe, making her the oldest yoga instructor in the world! And, like Hilaria Baldwin, she rocks a pair of sky-high heels while doing it -- she even climbed Machu Picchu in them! (#Goals)

So, what’s the secret to her longevity? “Go look out at the trees all around you -- a lot of them are hundreds of years old. They are not getting older every day. At this moment, they all look as if they’re dead, but they’re not. They’re in the act of recycling themselves,” says Porchon-Lynch.

“When you wake up in the morning, say this is going to be the best day of your life, and whatever you put in your mind materializes, so it doesn’t matter. I don’t have to worry about my age.”

Whoa, that’s deep. Check out her incredible bendy, twisty moves in the video above -- and who knows? Maybe you’ll learn to manifest your own destiny.
