WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- It's called the "Power of She" but it might as well be called the Power of Tao.

Ninety-eight-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch has captured America's heart since her turn on "America's Got Talent" in 2015. Westchesterites knew her far longer from her years as the founder of the Westchester Institute of Yoga and from teaching at the JCC of Mid-Westchester in Scarsdale and at the Fred Astaire Studio in Hartsdale.

Now, she's a cover girl, gracing the January cover of Athleta and highlighting the brand's nod to being fierce -- and fit -- at any age.

And now folks who've never met her in person can do so at the Athleta Scarsdale location at 700 Post 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15. where she'll be dancing with her dance teacher/partner.

The event is free and open to the public

The White Plains resident, who's also a published author (check out her book "Dancing Light: The Spiritual Side of Being Through the Eyes of a Modern Yoga Master") as well as the oldest yoga teacher in the world (according to the Guinness World Book of Records), said being chosen for the Athleta cover was "truly an honor."

Her quote on the cover reads: "The joy of living is inside you. Live it. Believe it."
