2016 Annual Conference Presenters
The 2016 Annual Polarity Center Conference will be a very exciting one indeed! We are very fortunate to the have the following presenters scheduled.
Amadea Morningstar, MA, RPE, RYT, will be teaching Energetic Nutrition and Ayurvedic pulse reading. Dr. Stone developed a unique approach to food and healing that he termed Energetic Nutrition, as part of his wide-reaching application of Polarity Therapy. While Amadea Morningstar has practiced and taught about Ayurveda for over three decades, in the mid-1990s, she happily integrated the energetic healing of Polarity Therapy into her work as well. Hands-on, non-invasive assessment skills are crucial for effective healing support.
In this experiential practicum, Amadea will teach the effective use of Ayurvedic pulse and tongue assessment in a health care practice, and introduce how to skillfully apply Dr. Stone’s Energetic Nutrition methods under a variety of circumstances. Explore how healthy food choices can vary from person to person, depending on their conditions. If you are a body worker, nutrition educator, Polarity therapist, or other health care worker looking to expand and deepen how you work with your clientele, join us for this stimulating teaching experience. These qualities are a must for a rich, well-informed Polarity practice and necessary qualifications in some areas of Polarity Training. Amadea will share her fascination of Ayurveda’s emphasis on the therapeutic importance of food and its systemized approach to different foods for different people.
Amadea has been practicing in the Sante Fe, New Mexico community since 1974. (Visit her website at www.ayurvedapolarityyoga.com.) She is a member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association, the American Polarity Association and the Integral Yoga Teachers Association. Amadea is the author of “Ayurvedic Guide to Polarity Therapy: Hands-On Healing”, “The Ayurvedic Cookbook” and “Ayurvedic Cooking for Westerners”. She is certified with APTA to teach Energetic Nutrition for their RPP and BCPP.
Each day will begin with an hour of Intuitive Yoga taught by its founder, Eleanora Lipton. Eleanora graced our conference last year, introducing us to Intuitive Yoga. Skillfully, she showed us that a yoga posture may be a goal, but what’s more important is being present within the process of getting there. Eleanora brings a richness of skill, sensitivity, and experience to the facilitation of the polarity process, growing wellness, health building and living with passion. “The discovery of Polarity was and continues to be the inspiration of my life path, says Lipton.”
Eleanora is the Founder and Director of the Atlanta Polarity & Intuitive Yoga Center (visit the website here: www.atlantapolaritycenter.com). Currently, she is a member of the International Polarity Education Alliance (IPEA) and a Board Certified Polarity Practitioner with the American Polarity Therapy Association (APTA). A Polarity Practitioner and Intuitive Yoga instructor at Accelerated Recovery Centers (recovery center for alcoholics), she also has a private practice and is a senior faculty member with The Temple of the Inner Self.
Accomplishments include “The Therapeutic Art of Polarity, an Instructional Manual”; PEACE, a Meditation CD, Polarity Plus Tea, originially developed by Dr. Stone; and a soon to be released video of Intuitive Yoga in Berlin, filmed August 2015 for the German Polarity Association.
Eleanora is internationally recognized as a Polarity and the Intuitive Yoga instructor. She has a B.A. in Religious Studies, University of Colorado and has participated in extensive retreats with the School of Spiritual Healing. She has studied Yoga since 1973. Community outreach includes supervised practices at the local fire station.
Eleanora Lipton is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.
