World’s Oldest Yoga Master Speaking at Dharma and Yoga Fest

The first-ever Dharma and Yoga Fest will take place on Saturday, September 21, from 1 to 7 p.m. at Highlands Middle School in White Plains, New York. The free event, organized by Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), the White Plains Youth Bureau and White Plains Cares Coalition, features a talk by the world’s oldest known yoga master, Tao Porchon-Lynch.         

The Dharma and Yoga Fest features yoga and meditation workshops, food demonstrations, discussions, storytelling, dance and cultural performances designed to show how spirituality plays an important role in nurturing wellness of the mind and body. The 95-year-old Porchon-Lynch will share her secrets for health, longevity and graceful aging during her talk and the Q-and-A session that follows.

The day, which is open to all, includes such fun-filled activities for children as game stalls, face painting, yoga for kids and a fancy costume parade. The festival concludes a year of activities organized by HSS to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Swami, who introduced the Hindu philosophies of Vedanta and yoga to the western world in 1893. Dharma and Yoga Fest is part of the Wellness Week celebration of the city of White Plains.
