WALPOLE, N.H. – A chance to learn yoga from Tao Porchon-Lynch, a grand master of modern yoga, will be offered Saturday and Sunday, June 2-3 at the Hastings House in Walpole.

Tao’s life is extraordinary. There will be time to hear some of her stories. Tao was born in India. She marched with Ghandi at an early age. She helped with the underground during World War II. She was a model in Paris, and the stories go on and on.

Her teaching style reflects the great masters with whom she studied, including B.K.S. Iyengar, Matji Indra Devi, and Swami Prabhavananda. Her passions, in addition to yoga, includes ballroom dancing. At the age of 99, Tao brings a delightful childlike love of life and nature to all that she does.

The classes are Saturday, June 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, June 3 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. To register, call Josephine Russell, 603-352-1684.
