We had the good fortune of connecting with Erika Nicole and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Erika, what is the most important factor behind your success?
One of the most important factors, if not THE most important factor, is creating something out of love and never choosing to act out of fear. If you are truly acting out of love, you will flourish and be able to get through the toughest times. We are here today because our main goal is to love on others always.

What should our readers know about your business?
We are not only a barre studio, but a lifestyle brand focused on the ‘whole person’ – mind, body & soul. We want everyone who leaves our space to feel empowered. Our mission is to be a place to live your every day, where all of the pieces come together, where you feel celebrated and whole.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We love supporting other small businesses in our San Diego community. Especially in our own small community in Bird Rock, La Jolla. Favorite Places to Eat: Beaumonts, Wayfarer Bread, Nomad Donuts, Fort Oak, Bird Rock Coffee, Sunnie’s Spa/Boutiques: Cleo Skincare, Lavande, Pigment

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My son Scottlyn is my driving force — as a single mother, I want him to see my strength and determination. Making him proud helps me keep going on my toughest days!
