There is a part of the soul that stirs at night, in the dark and soundless times of day, when our defenses are down and our daylight distractions no longer serve to protect us from ourselves.
If you could learn to trust in yourself and listen to your inner voice and intuition, you would be amazed at the infinite storehouse of wisdom, guidance and ideas you possesses.
Millions across the globe have been inspired by 96-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch -- World War II French Resistance fighter, model, actress, film producer, wine connoisseur, competitive ballroom dancer and yoga master.
