160: Wise Woman Tea: Living Life as a Yoga with Patsy Eisenstein

 In Life choices, Podcast - Feminine Power Time, Practices, Self-Care & Self-Sustainability, Spiritual Practices, Wisdom for Intense Times


When people ask me how I am doing, I always say to them “I am in the yoga of life.” It’s the most accurate, honest and frankly rewarding answer. Twenty years ago when I found yoga and it found me, I didn’t realize how much it would re-shape how I saw the world, and honestly how much it would prepare me for this world today. I can honestly say that I would not be able to do what I do, be the person I am, without it.

Yoga is so much more than being bend, meditating for hours or proving our strength by how long you can hold a pose, or if you can do a handstand.

Yoga means union.

The physical practice of yoga is just one gateway into what is a well of golden wisdom that the yogis left for us to meet the times we are in. It’s like then knew ‘this’ – today’s intense world – was coming.

And while I talk about yogic wisdom all the time, and it’s informed so much of my teachings, I also find that we have a lot of misperceptions about yoga in the western world. And there’s so much more to it that is right there, if we are willing to open up to it.

Which is why I invited a new friend, Patsy Kuo Eisenstein, a native of Taiwan who moved to the US at the age of 20, and host o f the New & Ancient Story Community to join us for a special “wise woman tea” session of Feminine Power Time: #160: Living Life as A Yoga, Yogi Perspectives for Thriving in Our Times.

We invite you to join us as we look through the eyes of the yogi, through our personal journey with yoga, the practice of yoga not just on the mat, but in every area of our lives, and how yoga as a way of life is core to our ability to serve this world and stay sustained within ourselves.

We share our experience of:

  • How ‘yoga’ finds you and how the wisdom opens up to you over time.
  • Leadership and power through the eyes of a Western woman  practicing yoga
  • Harmonic Defiance as a yogi – moving in strength, staying true to the self, receiving other people’s judgements, and following your deeper wisdom no matter what
  • Dealing with people we don’t agree with, that trigger us and that we just don’t understand – in ways we don’t waste our chi ranting or fighting against, but how that make a subtle but significant impact
  • What ‘living life as a yoga’ means and how to explore what that could look like for you

Tune in.

Join us.

And then connect with Patsy. And come over to the Feminine Wisdom Cafe and join in the conversation.

with great heart,
