Ever since India-born Tao Porchon-Lynch received the title of "World's Oldest Yoga Teacher" in 2012 by the Guinness World Records, she remained an icon often seen with her fur coat and black stilettos at the Fred Astaire Studio in Hartsdale.

Lynch who will be turning to 100 on 13 August, lives her life with her unique mantra "There's nothing that you cannot do."

She has become the most interesting woman on earth and her lifestyle reiterates the writing on the wall that age is nothing but just a number. Lynch was even recognized on Women's Entrepreneurship Day at the United Nations in 2016.

People who don't know her would be surprised to know that this old lady at the age of 87 took up ballroom dancing and went on to defeat many youngsters in it to clinch more than 750 first-place awards.

Lynch often recollects her personal encounters with Mahatma Gandhi, General Charles de Gaulle, Ernest Hemingway, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Hope, and scores of other celebrities.

As the founder of the Westchester Institute of Yoga, Lynch, at the age of 87, stunned the audience including judges by her unbelievable dance performance in NBC's "America's Got Talent."

But it is not the last one for her. She is now gearing up for her innovative moves on the popular upcoming ABC show "Dancing with the Stars."

Otherwise, the 99-year-old Lynch has a long list of events to keep her busy throughout the year to host several yoga retreats, rendering her opinion at conferences around the world. This year alone, she is making a whirlwind tour of Singapore, Arizona, Dubai, Slovenia, France, China and India.

What will Lynch do when she turns a centenarian? Yoga, of course!
