Photographed by Yakovlev in November 2011, at the age of 93, Tao Porchon-Lynch is a dancer and a yoga teacher. Since she began dancing competitively at the age of 87, Porchon-Lynch has won more than 600 prizes, and at 96 is still teaching yoga. An average day includes three hours of yoga classes in the morning, followed by two hours of dancing in the afternoon – her partners are 70 years younger than her. “I don’t believe in age. I believe in strength of energy."
