World's Oldest Yoga Teacher is 96!

 

 

 

Despite being close to 100, yoga teacher Tao Porchon Lynch is still inspiring students in New York who are a quarter of her age.

She's been practicing yoga for more than 70 years and shows no signs of slowing down - in fact, she also ballroom dances too! LOL!

Priceless!

R.I.P. Jazz-Funk Legend Joe Sample

Mr. Joe Sample and the Jazz Crusaders gave some of the best live performances ever!  If they had a concert within a few hundred miles radius of where I lived, I found a way to get there - no matter what.

Thank you Mr. Sample.  Your amazingly beautiful music lives on - forever.  R.I.P. sir!
