Are you a practitioner of the Healing Arts - a Polarity Practitioner, a Healthcare Professional, a Mental Health Counselor or an individual committed to your own personal growth?
This retreat will provide tools to help you assist your clients more fully connect with their body as their internal guidance system through Intuitive Yoga.
This retreat will take participants on an inner journey of the energy pathways through Dr. Stone’s easy stretches, yoga poses, and mindfulness of movement. The primary intention is to ground and open the pathways within the body; to feel the qualities of the pathways and ease the energy through the tight, injured and painful spaces within.
The aging process alone can be especially challenging, and when complicated with inflammation and stiffness; we can help others profoundly enhance core vitality with focus and movement. I am working deeply with clients in yoga class, in the gym with weights, and those limited to chair exercise to help them discover where they have strength and range of motion where they simply have not been aware. Pain has become more of a path of complacent suffering. Yet there is still a spark that just maybe they can feel better, get around better. My oldest client at 97 years old, has been so overwhelmed by sciatic pain, that he did not know how much strength was in his arms that is now assisting him to move, get up, and feel better about himself.
Another client, 65 years old, after working for a year with a weight trainer, has locked her shoulders and the back muscles. The upper back has formed with minimal flexibility.
Working consistently with Dr. Stone’s cliff hangers and spinal releases, and other practices, we are beginning to see an increased range of motion. The greatest challenge is training her mind to be more receptive of the subtle movement and power of breath and energy.
The energy principles of polarity, after 35+ years, have become more alive and applicable then maybe ever! Understanding and working with the core breath and core muscles to stabilize and protect the skeleton and nerve pathways is simple and simply overlooked. Profound shifts happen in the consciousness of the body which then brings clarity to the mind…often quite startling.

Paths For Wholeness, formerly known as Atlanta Polarity & Intuitive Yoga Center, has been based in Atlanta for over 30 years. Eleanora and her amazing teams of instructors, practitioners, and graduates offer private sessions, intuitive yoga, sound therapy, and nutritional support in the US and Europe. Based on the energy principles of Polarity Therapy, we offer hands on therapy for relief of over-stressed muscles, injuries, athletic stress, and day-to-day life. This therapy also reaches into deeply held stress patterns both physically and mentally, helping to release resistance and promote the receptive, i.e., the allowing of body, mind, and spirit to come into higher alignment. When the blockages/resistances are released, a sense of balance and vitality come naturally.
"Eleanora's Polarity Therapy is a fantastic combination of therapeutic touch with specific energy work that releases my deeply held tension. The combination is a great stress reliever as well as the best power nap ever. For injury recovery, neck stiffness, back pain, leg fatigue, and summer sluggishness, this is just what the doctor should order!" - A Satisfied Client
