The 93-year-old has been practising yoga since she was eight years old, and was recently named the world's oldest yoga teacher by Guinness World Records.

Porchon-Lynch has taught hundreds of students around the world for over 45 years, and is now using her skills to help stressed-out New Yorkers discover the secrets to a lifelong spiritual journey.
