Coming to My Senses
The documentary film Coming to My Senses follows the journey of former motorcross racer Aaron Baker. In 1999, Aaron experienced a devastating injury, breaking his neck while riding. He was paralyzed from the neck down with a prognosis that did not involve him ever feeding himself again. Yet his persistence and ongoing practice have led to him literally coming to his senses in more ways than one.
This film tracks his effort to set goals, to rehabilitate body, mind, and spirit, and to trek across punishing landscapes. His work includes opening a socially conscious low-cost gym focused on increasing mobility for people with disabilities. Watch our exclusive clip from the film in which Aaron focuses on setting goals and taking steps on the road to feeling and freedom.

Felicia Tomasko has spent more of her life practicing Yoga and Ayurveda than not. She first became introduced to the teachings through the writings of the Transcendentalists, through meditation, and using asana to cross-train for her practice of cross-country running. Between beginning her commitment to Yoga and Ayurveda and today, she earned degrees in environmental biology and anthropology and nursing, and certifications in the practice and teaching of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda while working in fields including cognitive neuroscience and plant biochemistry. Her commitment to writing is at least as long as her commitment to yoga. Working on everything related to the written word from newspapers to magazines to websites to books, Felicia has been writing and editing professionally since college. In order to feel like a teenager again, Felicia has pulled out her running shoes for regular interval sessions throughout Southern California. Since the very first issue of LA YOGA, Felicia has been part of the team and the growth and development of the Bliss Network.
