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.
