Yoga Class w/ Felicia Tomasko- Donation Event
Bring your mat. 75 min class

Felicia Marie Tomasko RN, E-RYT 500, inspires people to follow the path to personal freedom and vibrant health through the practice of Yoga and Ayurveda. She teaches a heartfelt exploration of shakti, sacred energy, through asana, pranayama, concentration and relaxation and maintains a private practice in the healing tradition of Ayurveda, a system of holistic and integrative medicine native to India. Ayurveda shares the same philosophy and ways of approaching the body, mind and spirit as Yoga and emphasizes our relationship to our body, breath, spirit and to nature within and around us. The dual systems of Yoga and Ayurveda, while seemingly ancient and esoteric, hold vital lessons for us to learn how to live with intent and address the needs of living in the modern world. Felicia believes in humorously making these concepts relevant to modern, everyday life.

Felicia integrates more than twenty years of study of the ancient approaches of Yoga and Ayurveda with her training and licensure as a registered nurse. She is the editor in chief of LA YOGA Ayurveda and Health magazine (where she has been on staff for more than seven years) and serves on the board of directors of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and the National Ayurvedic Medical Association, on the advisory board of the Holistic Option and the Leadership Council of the Green Yoga Association. She is a featured voice on Intent.com and writes regularly on health and well-being for a number of books, newspapers, magazines and websites. In addition to Yoga and Ayurveda, Felicia has worked in cognitive neuropsychology and plant biochemistry research and has degrees in nursing and environmental biology.

The Conscious Movement - Wellness in the Media Panel
There are a number of leaders in the Wellness community to admire and respect, not only for their personal endeavours, but how they share their inspiration with the public. Wellness is an ever growing trend in the industry, whether it be through film, print, product marketing, etc. The genre has the most capability to grow within the media landscape and equally impact its audience. With the health information and fitness fads constantly changing, how do you ensure you and your work stands out amongst the crowd? How is this growth fueling awareness for living more consciously and what are some of the best ways to connect with your audience on a deeper level? The speakers joining us for this panel are leaders in their respective communities and use media as a tool to further their cause and spread continual inspiration to their following.

Distribution & Marketing Roundtable

When you are ready to share your film with an audience, the next steps are crucial. Finding the right distribution path for your project isn’t necessarily a clear cut process, nor is marketing your film to attract the crowd you so desire. How do you go about creating a marketing plan? Also, what are the key points to remember when tackling the fine art of film distribution? These two aspects go hand-in-hand, so take a seat at the roundtable to discuss the proper course of action for your project so you can successfully market and distribute your film.

The Roundable Discussions are an open forum lead by industry leaders designed to help you learn from and connect with your peers about important aspects of the filmmaking process. Please note that these sessions are meant to be highly interactive amongst the audience and speaker.
