Wellness Adventure Retreat

December 3 – 10th, 2021
Find Your Movement, Find Your Flow. Discover a renewed sense of hope, calm, and balance with the intuitive and experienced support of Paleena, the Movement Junkie.
Free you body…From tension, pain, stuck patterns, illness and dis-ease and begin to move and do more of what you love! I support you while your body unwinds overdone survival strengths, freeing your body to move with more ease and grace.
Free your mind…By freeing the trauma energy from the body. You don’t have to figure it all out in your head. You don’t even have to know. As a bonus, you get to release the issues in those tissues that you didn’t even know were there!
Discover what is possible for your body…Many of my clients over the last decade have come to me after trying various modalities without successfully resolving their issue. Frustrated by the limitations they’d begun to accept, I help my clients to explore outside those boxes. I get them back to doing what they love – whether it’s playing on the floor with their children or grandchildren or getting back into nature as an extreme athlete!
Find your balance during challenging times….As I guide you to the stability of your own two feet to support you through life’s waves (injuries, illness, divorce, financial pressures, transition etc). Once you find your balance and align with your heart, true flow emerges.

“Paleena has an amazing way of supporting me to drop in, ground, and feel. She is an incredible space holder and guide in this different, challenging, and very worthwhile way of recognizing deep patterns. Her work is life changing.” Cory Parker, Shamanic Healer Hood River, OR
“Paleena’s insights into movement both through life and in the body can be transformative. Her encouragement is both gentle and, at the same time, motivating. She is not simply fixing problems — she is teaching internal curiosity and then passing on the knowledge needed to explore and connect in ways that ground both the body and soul.” Art Shingler San Diego, CA

I am curious and adventurous and view life as a journey to be embraced rather than a list of rigid demands to be accomplished. I have discovered my life’s balance in nature, and through the vehicle of my own healing journey – one that required me to dive deep within myself.
As a competitive athlete, I initially had success by pushing past my weak areas and relying on my strengths to push me through and keep me going. This autopilot habit took me past the point where my overall health and wellbeing was supported. I refer to this now as strengths overdone.
The result was a series of broken bones, ligament tears, bulging disks, multiple concussions and surgeries. I pushed through years of chronic back pain until I got to the point where I was losing weeks of my life drugged up on pain killers and muscle relaxers. The specialists advised me that the only hope was surgery.
It was at this point I was ready to listen to my body’s wisdom. That’s when I took matters into my own hands. I pursued acupuncture and Naturopathic medicine, learned how to truly nourish my body and explored yoga and supportive movement. It was through this process that I learned that I had choice in my relationship with my body – I could use movement as a drug or fix or I could use it to deepen relationship with myself.
Learning to find my breath was the key ingredient to my success in healing from 17 broken bones, finding ease in my back without surgery and overcoming disabling digestive discomfort. My breath empowered me to be more present and aware and taught me how to give back to the body that I’d taken for granted all those years.
The freedom I found in my own body led me to want to share these limitless possibilities with others. And so that’s just what I’ve done! I’ve been studying and teaching Yoga and Pilates since 2005, became a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach in 2009, and submerged myself into the world of yoga therapy, studying with some of the most unique teachers in the world becoming a Certified Yoga Therapist in 2014.
I remain a curious student and promise to continue on this journey, sharing my explorations openly and honestly with you.
We are not meant to ride life’s waves alone. I believe we are stronger together.
