How did average girl Joanna Rajendran have such a backstage pass to magical Guru Tao Porchon-Lynch?

This intergenerational spiritual journey shows how the philosophies of the World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher shaped two women generations apart. From trauma to triumphs and everything in between, these friends experience their respective worlds guided by the inspiring lessons first learned and then passed on by Tao.

In addition to teaching for over 70 years, Tao was an activist, an actress, a model, a producer and a writer. Later in life, she was on the Panel for Peace with His Holiness The Dalai Lama, collaborated with Tony Robbins and was considered by Deepak Chopra to be his yoga teacher. Joanna watched in awe as Tao inspired transformation in everyone she encountered and at the end realized that her own may have been the biggest.

Love love love! Such an amazing story- could not put it down! Joanna’s spiritual guidance is the absolute best and how she connects it all with her lifelong Tao learnings is life changing! We all need more of their mentality in our lives!

Sincerely, this is a book I would give as a true gift to anyone feeling darkness in their life, because it presents such real and tangible examples of how we can reimagine ourselves. My Guru Wears Heels is not a self-help book. It’s not a memoir. It is a story that is completely original, compelling, and profound. While reading, I found myself laughing on one page and choking back tears on the next. It’s all part of the journey.
