Nicole Ulrick is not a yoga teacher. She's an extraordinary yoga teacher. After practicing yoga for over 20 years in the Los Angeles area, finding Nicole was literally a breath of fresh air. She embodies what real yoga is all about; and she has it all. It's hot, it's hard, it's about breath, it's about movement, it's about stillness, but mostly, she reminds one that the breath is the core of the practice. Nicole understands, and is able to communicate with grace, strength, and beauty, all while the class is getting an incredible body and mind blowing workout. Even though you'll get a "workout", Nicole's class is MUCH more than that. It's an experience. Everyone who practices yoga should experience a teacher who understands what Nicole understands. The true meaning, love, breath, and beauty of yoga. Nicole is a rare, rare teacher. One you'll remember forever.

They don't make enough stars on the chart for ThirdEye Yoga
. I had been to other Yoga studios in LA, but felt lost in a sea of people and was lucky if the instructor even looked my way during the course of the session. I spent a long time looking for a yoga studio that would educate me about the practice of Yoga, and would patiently guide me through the process and I could not have found a better teacher in Nicole Ulrick. Her experience, patience, focus, and dedication to the practice are evident within minutes of meeting her and she is genuinely interested in the health, happiness and well being of her clients. She is so supportive and inspires me to really push to the next level, while at the same time, ensuring that I find peace and tranquility in my practice.
If you are looking for an excellent instructor, not only in the practice of Yoga, but Meditation as well, then ThirdEye Yoga
is the studio for you. I am blessed to have found this studio and cherish my sessions with Nicole!

I have doing yoga for 14 years including 6 weeks in India & i taught in CO for 3 years and NICOLE'S approach is super.
- David Bluefield, City Yoga student
I recently completed an "Intro to Yoga"
program with Nicole - five 1-hour private sessions that have provided an absolutely essential foundation for a truly rewarding yoga practice. Prior to working with Nicole the only experience I'd had with yoga was as part of a P90X class that was offered at my office gym ( abandoned after 3 uninspiring sessions). While I've continued to be curious about yoga I've always been intimidated by large classes, knowing I would be hiding behind rows of lean and lithe yoga gurus perfecting my bad form. I found Nicole probably as you have - yelping "West Hollywood yoga". And now here I am adding to the many wonderful reviews that led me to contact her.
During my sessions with Nicole, I have learned that yoga is more than just cycling through a series of poses. It's truly a lifestyle, a mindset, a relationship between your mind and body, between yourself and the world around you. The sessions have taught me how important the right movement, alignment, form, and breathing are. Not only will this continue to improve my yoga practice and help me get the most out of every class and every pose from this day forward, it has in many ways changed my life. The breathing exercises have improved my endurance while running. The sessions on movement and alignment have improved my overall posture and balance. I am more mindful and appreciative of my body overall.
As for Nicole herself, she is simply an amazing person - warm, authentic, patient, supportive, and knowledgable. She has been able to assess my ability and tailor our sessions in a way that challenges me but still feels relaxed and fun. Now that my 5 intro sessions are complete, I am planning to sign up for another series of sessions.I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Nicole and ThirdEye Yoga
, and could not recommend it more highly.

I have never posted a review on YELP
but I was so moved and blown away by Nicole, her teaching, her philosophy, her knowledge and her talent -- that I decided to do so. I was traveling to LA on business last week and when I learned I would be there for 5 days - I decided to use the opportunity to jump start my year-old yoga practice. Like several other YELP reviewers, I too, got the 5 session intro package with Nicole and I am so very grateful that I did. I was huber-motivated to fit in every one of my five sessions (in five days) amidst a hectic work schedule because once I went to the first session with Nicole, I just didn't want to miss any of my finite time with her. I achieved at least 3 poses that have alluded me over the past year and I learned so much about breathing, balance and inversions and the integrated effect of breathing on yoga and my overall health. Every session was not only a wonderful work out, but taught me so much. I just returned from a class at my home studio (in NYC) and I am thrilled to report that through Nicole's guidance and what she taught me in 5 short days, I improved in so many aspects of my yoga practice. Nicole is a spirtually lovely person and a yoga wonder and I am only sad I could not convince Nicole to move her busy practice to NYC so I can learn with her always!!!
- Fredda P, NYC
Nicole totally changed my life. I can't praise her highly enough. She's the epitome of down-to-earth, authentic, and present. She embodies the tenets of yoga that she imparts with positive enegy, kindness, compassion, and playfulness. In the magical environment of her studio/home. She's the real deal. But shhhhh! If you shout it out from the rooftops, you won't be able to benefit from the hidden gem that she is! (-:
- Jen A., Los Angeles, CA
I cannot speak highly enough of Nicole, her knowledge, and her authenticity.
She is an incredible teacher.
I feel SO blessed to have found her as an instructor.
I came to her with many pain issues, 2 surgeries in my past, and a tortoise pace. Total beginner.
I was not up for a class with other people, because it did not work well for me in the past. In crowded classes at large studios, I did not get the attention that I desperately needed. I wanted to make sure I did not injure myself further. (And I was fearful and embarrassed that I was going to just fall over repeatedly.)
And then Third Eye Yoga, and Nicole happened!
Nicole truly wants to help those who are willing to learn.
She is patient and kind, and SO dedicated to helping me help myself.
She is passionate, and cares about the small and large victories.
Her accessibility is also such a blessing---she is affordable and fair.
She wants her students to have not just better physical health, but clarity and peace.
I have been able to practice with her privately, and it is one of the best things to happen in my life in a long while.
I now feel hopeful that I can feel better! I feel empowered and stronger.
I am learning with Nicole how my body works, and how I can teach it to work for me, and not against me.
Her wealth of experience and knowledge just blows me away!
She is also SO gifted in her communication, and being able to give me a clear, vivid visualization.
It is not overwhelming, but challenging. I love it.
I cannot be more thrilled that I am now improving and feeling better!
She is amazing!!
- Meredith A., Los Angeles, CA
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Nicole. I had a haphazard practice previously, with some wonderful early experiences and then a series of failed searches for someone with the right balance for me. The first session with Nicole, and I knew I'd found who I had been searching for. Her explanations of the physical benefits of the positions, combined with the clear guidance on the positions themselves and her calm spiritual energy make for a wonderful physical, intellectual and spiritual experience.
While I could "make it through" an intermediate class before, I never felt I really understood what I was doing. Her teaching of the basic positions has given me an incredible grounding and I realize that doing it well makes even those positions challenging! I leave each session invigorated and wanting more. Plus, she is an incredible person, who I feel blessed to have met. She is what every teacher should be--passionate, informative and supportive.
If you have been looking for such a teacher, your search is over.
- Linda C., Los Angeles, CA
I was in a car accident last year & almost died. On top of that I have had fibromyaglia since I was 17yrs old. I've been to many many yoga studios across Los Angeles, so when my friend suggested Nicole I was scared to try her but was willing to try anything for the pain. Not only was I wanting to stop the pain but have a spiritual experience. Nicole is all those qualities & more!! Her voice & knowledgeable words are calming and go straight to my muscles and brain. My back is feeling so much better. I'm building strength again & feeling more like a whole person. She has literally saved my body & mind.
- Jill V., West Hollywood
Private lessons with Nicole have opened up an entirely new world of Yoga for me, I leave each session feeling great and cannot wait to return the next week. My previous experience with yoga was in fairly large classes and I always left feeling frustrated because I knew I was not grasping proper alignment or breathing. I always wished I could have private yoga lessons and after some research online I found Nicole and I now enjoy the best yoga experience I have ever had! She is an amazing instructor - very intuitive, knowledgeable and positive. Thank you Nicole!
- Lisa F., Los Angeles, CA
All I can say is Nicole is the best! As an older first time yoga student she made me feel comfortable and confident ! I was visiting LA for a month and I read about her beginner yoga package on the internet and decided to finally take the plunge. I have been putting off going to yoga classes for years just feeling too intimidated. Nicole goes through the most important parts of yoga .....breathing, alignment etc not just the basic yoga poses. I now feel confident enough to attend yoga classes on my own!
Thanks Nicole and I will definitely be back with her on my next visit to LA!
- David P., Miami Beach, FL
This is the best yoga experience I have ever had...I took private yoga sessions with Nicole and learned a great deal. Her approach is a detailed, informative and scientific understanding of the body and its physical needs, focusing on restorative techniques for healing as well as controlled breathing and balance. A very rewarding experience. One I can take with me and apply to my everyday life. I now have more consciousness throughout the day when it comes to finding balance between mind and body. Nicole's attention to detail is refreshing. She is a great teacher who exudes patience and dedication to this craft.
- Dee Dee C., West Hollywood, CA
Taking the leap into yoga for the first time can be a bit overwhelming (who wants to walk into a class where you feel like you are the only one who doesn't know what you're doing). A couple of months (1 class a wee) with Nicole changed all that for me. Nicole is a patient and passionate soul who has given me the tools and knowledge to feel comfortable in any level 1 class. During my private sessions, Nicole both pushed me and put me at ease, which I found to be a perfect balance. I look forward to coming back for tune-up's as my yoga practice evolves.
- Leslie K., Los Angeles, CA.
If I could give Nicole more stars I would. I have never done yoga and found ThirdEye Yoga
, I decided to give it a try. I have learned so much about my body and how to use proper mechanics. Nicole is very patient and an excellent instructor, I am looking forward to more yoga in the future. If you are looking as a beginner or for a good workout she is the person to call.
- Joel M., Los Angeles, CA.
I am new to Yoga, so I really needed to learn the basics. Nicole was a wonderful teacher. She focused on a lot of education about breathing, posture, and form. She's extremely knowledgeable about how the body works and is also one of the few people who really understand what Yoga should really be about.
I purchased her introductory package of 5 sessions
, which was very reasonable for all the attention and information I received. She spends a considerable amount of time educating and demonstrating some of the moves as they relate to her lessons.
Personally, you can tell Nicole teaches Yoga because she loves it. Genuinely loves it. She's not one of those hard-bodied "yoga nazis" who loves bossing people around or one of those gym-bunnies who do Yoga because it's trendy. She's the real deal - a serene, centered, caring person who has dedicated her life to the practice of Yoga. I highly recommend her.
- Denise G., Park La Brea, CA.
I've never felt like I was really 'learning' yoga in most classes, and instead I was just 'doing' it and as my body was in all of these random shapes I had little understanding of any of it. ThirdEye Yoga
focuses on real instruction and information so you can have a solid understanding of what yoga is really about. What's also cool is that we can have a healing therapeutic session or we can kick it up to a vigorous challenging session. I am excited and encouraged going in and informed and inspired coming out!
- Andrea T., West Hollywood, CA
I had been half-heartedly trying get into yoga for awhile but finally really motivated to do something about it. I did a google search for "West Hollywood Yoga" and there mixed in with the well known local studios was ThirdEye Yoga
. I clicked through and saw an offer for 5 private classes for $200. Wow! This looked like a great deal, almost too good to be true since other private yoga classes I looked into ranged from $75-$150 per hour.
I sent an email inquiring about their ad with a few questions. I received a prompt and friendly reply answering all of my questions with just the answers I wanted to hear. I immediately confirmed that I was interested and scheduled my first class for the following week. My first class with Nicole was amazing. She really broke down not just the how's but also the why's of yoga in a way that made complete sense and left me wanting to learn and do more. She personalizes and guides you through practice so effortlessly that you don't even realize until the class is over that you just learned like 10 new things.
Third Eye was the perfect find for someone like me who was a little intimidated to go to the huge classes that seem to be the norm in the well known West Hollywood yoga studios.
It has been 4 months since my first class with Nicole and just last week we had our 16th class together. I plan to continue practicing with her but she has also given me the confidence to go to any yoga studio in town and feel like I can keep up, and when I can't keep up she has instilled in me the wisdom to know that it's best not to try and keep up if it doesn't feel right and to respect my own limits.
I feel so lucky to have found such a warm and giving person as Nicole to start yoga experience with. If you want to give yourself the best possible jump start to your new life with yoga you really should give ThirdEye Yoga
a try. You will not be sorry.
- Scott R., Los Angeles, CA
has completely changed my life. Nicole is a gifted teacher and quite knowledgable about the body, mind, and spirit. The yoga environment is warm and peaceful. I began taking yoga at ThirdEye a year and a half ago at age 52. I am in better shape now than I was in my 30's! My posture is improved, I have more stamina and I'm much stronger. I attribute all of these changes to yoga and in particular to Nicole's instruction. If you're a beginner like I was or an experienced student, you won't be disappointed. Give yourself a gift and sign up for a few classes. You'll love it!
- Jenny G., Toluca Lake, CA
I have worked with many Yoga instructors and I have never worked with anyone who is as good as Nicole. Yoga is not a "job" to her, its her life and that is how she approaches it. ThirdEye Yoga
is simply the best!
- Merril, LA, CA
I am almost hesitant to write a review of ThirdEye Yoga
, as I would like to have this wonderful studio all to myself! I completed the Intro to Yoga package doing 5 private sessions with Nicole, and it has given me a great foundation to start practicing yoga. This package also brings an awareness to the breath and the body that are so often ignored in Los Angeles. I'd be more than ecstatic to continue private sessions if my budget would allow, but now I feel I have a good understanding of proper form that I can utilize when practicing in group classes, which is crucial for everyone but for me in particular, as my margin of error in my movements is smaller than average since I have had sciatica for 3 years. I am looking forward to regaining some of the flexibility I've lost due to my bulging disc and am also excited to increase my strength and balance in ThirdEye Yoga
's great group classes.
Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this Intro to Yoga package offer. You will learn valuable info for preventative care, which certainly isn't the way our country approaches healthcare, but if I could go back in time and have the knowledge about my body that I do now several years before my disc deteriorated due to my own negligence and poor posture, I would've saved myself tremendous grief and money.
- Angella K., L.A. CA
At ThirdEye Yoga
each and every session is a gift! With her superior knowledge and intuitive understanding Nicole guides me and encourages me. Each step of the way I feel safe and cared about while I am learning and at times struggling, her explanations resonate with me long after I leave the studio. My awareness expands after each class and I am able to hear the "teacher" as I walk, breathe and stretch. The studio is in a perfect setting a gentle, organic background for a studio and it's gifted, kind and amazing teacher.
Patricia H., West Hollywood, CA
I just came back to practice at third eye after spending some months on the east coast and frequenting some nyc yoga studios...
I honestly did not think I would be "re-blown away" this time seeing that I knew what to expect and all but boy was I wrong! The energy and focus I get while practicing at ThirdEye Yoga
simply pushes me further than anywhere else I've ever been while the increased attention on each student brought the teacher to point out some bad habits I have that were holding my practice and power back - small stuff that I'm sure I've been doing for a while and never had it "corrected" by any of the teachers I've been practicing with elsewhere!
I think the fact that it's not a big place has geared it towards smaller classes where the teacher really has the ability to give you more attention
You enter the private residential building studio through a gorgeous little garden and find an equally charming space waiting for you inside with great atmosphere and always a great, down to earth group of people.
I have brought several friends here who all loved it. I just can't recommend this studio enough!
GREAT ENERGY, FRESH FLOWS AND ATTENTION THAT WILL PUSH YOU FURTHER THAN YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD GO!
- J K., Los Angeles, CA
So much gratitude! When I practice, on your mat (thx!), I feel your voice, guiding, encouraging, reminding, praising...

- Jennifer Anin..., Los Angeles, CA
If you don't know how to do yoga, this is THE place to learn. If you THINK you know how to do yoga, this is the place to really learn how to do it right. ThirdEye Yoga
actually teaches you so many useful important tools for all yoga styles. Sometimes I'm up for a vigorous session or sometimes I need a therapeutic approach and I always leave feeling that I was given such great instruction and inspiration. Bravo ThirdEye Yoga
for truly knowing how to TEACH yoga!!!
- Natalie M., Los Angeles, CA
So I've never done yoga before and went to a typical class that was packed and the teacher was standing somewhere in the room .. I think. I had a hard time getting into the groove and felt like I was just making twister shapes with my body without any instruction or understanding why it mattered. I was about to pull the plug on the whole yoga hype.. until I found Nicole at ThirdEye Yoga
! Since then I have developed a confident practice and a ton of useful information that helps me not only in my practice but in other sports as well. Im also blown away by everything I've learned about breath work. wow that alone has transformed my life. This place is the real deal and I must admit that I am now on board the yoga train.
- Michelle N., Los Angeles, CA
My review does not even skim the surface of how much my practice with Nicole means to me...
If you're looking for a room of 40 gym bunnies sweating their way through a 105-degree class this is NOT the place for you. Classes are small, tiny even, usually maxing out at 5 people, so you get a ton of personal attention in every pose, and often special poses are incorporated into the practice to address the maladies of class regulars.
I've been practicing yoga in Los Angeles for over 10 years, and nothing beats my experience at ThirdEye Yoga
. The style is mostly the heart-centered Anusara practice (depending on the teacher), and the atmosphere is decidedly homey (and beautiful). The teachers are friendly and inventive. Encouraging, and playful. Wise and humble. Spiritual but not at all woo-woo. And the class size means you're practically getting a private lesson every time. The stand-out instructor is Nicole Ulrick--I am utterly devoted and addicted to her classes. And every time I bring a friend to her class that friend ends up coming back for more.
If you're coming for the first time, call ahead to get the whole run-down. The studio is in a private space on a residential street in West Hollywood, so you'll want to talk to them about parking and whatnot to save yourself any confusion.
Nina, New York City
for me is at good as it gets! My teacher actually cares about each student and is passionate about her and our practice, anyone who walks into this class will instantly feel comfortable!
I have been kicked out of yoga studios for well lets just say, i Have been kicked out. I was scared to death to go to yoga when i moved to LA being that everyone here that does yoga is like a professional. A friend told me to try third eye because of its small classes and well the rest is history.
I have since missed only one class and from this non-committal girl that is huge, I instantly felt comfortable in the class because one it was nice and small and the teacher was amazing and made me feel comfortable and worked with me. With small classes I was able to learn the moves the correct way instead of just following others and hurting myself, I also learned the correct way to move and no actually get a work out while i am practicing.
I have noticed a difference in my body and attitude since i have started class and would reccommend third eye to anyone i know. The best part is is that its not just a beginners class, i have been able to continue with class and there are all levels in my class and no one gets held back and no one feels like they arent learning, It is the perfect balance of a yoga class.
I wouldn't go anywhere else for YOGA!!!!
Krisily, West Hollywood
If you are looking to do some yoga and get a great workout then give Nicole a call. She is the best, I'm at her group lessons twice a week. The class sizes are purposefully kept small and intimate, it almost has a private lesson vibe. Nicole is knowledgeable about health, classes constantly flow, there is always something to keep things interesting, and the environment is fun and relaxed.
I've tried other places and ThirdEye Yoga
is by far the best yoga experience I've ever had. I've been going to her for almost a year now.
Steven B., West Hollywood
As a middle aged mom of two boys, I took Nicole's yoga class with the intent of just unwinding. Little did I know that I would feel empowered and inspired at the same time. Nicole has helped me tap into my core strength and push beyond the boundaries of my comfort zone. I never envisioned myself doing a head stand in the middle of a room especially at my age; however, after a few weeks with Nicole, I gradually gathered enough strength and confidence to stand on my head with no support. This experience has spilled over into my daily life giving me the incentive to strive for more. For me, each class with Nicole is an ongoing learning experience and brings me a step closer to strengthening my foundation in my practice of yoga and in my life.
is an amazing space where Nicole really focuses and helps you grow. I have brought several friends here and every single one say they loved it and have been coming back. The flows are unique, keep momentum and really challenge you to strengthen some of those less comfortable zones (such as my lovely balance!!). Nicole is a Must Try for anyone that is more about growing in their practice than checking out the rest of the ocean of people in an otherwise typical crowded class.
Marla S., Los Angeles, CA
I've become a big fan of ThirdEye Yoga
. Having the opportunity to develop my practice in a one on one situation has enabled me to gather confidence and skills. Nicole is very encouraging and offers great instruction.
- Edward C., Los Angeles, CA
I'm so grateful to have found Nicole. She's a great teacher and has really helped me. I can tell I'm getting better, but more importantly doing yoga with Nicole has helped keep me calmer and more focused. She's the best - I recommend her to everyone!
- Henry J., Santa Monica, CA
Nicole is an amazing teacher! She is very knowledgeable with yoga & makes people feel very comfortable & at ease, no matter what level of experience. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
- K. G., Beverly Hills, CA
So much of practicing yoga is the space, energy and vibe of the studio. Third Eye is a really beautiful space with knowledgeable, friendly teachers who are dedicated to their craft. Smaller class = more attention = better practice. the down-to-earth attitude of both the teachers and the staff is exactly what the west hollywood yoga community needs! Love it.
- lucy J., Cambridge, MA
I took an Energy Alignment Workshop from Nicole last Saturday. Upon arriving to the ThirdEye Yoga
studio, I just loved the relaxing courtyard with a tranquil fountain and nice vibe. Inside, I loved the peaceful energy of Nicole's yoga studio with yoga mats and colorful pillows everywhere. She has created a safe and soothing environment where you feel free to practice your yoga craft and reach inside your soul to heal. Nicole showed us photos and videos to demonstrate how energy is everywhere and how it can move and change. She talked about String Theory which said to me that she is very evolved in her research and in her teachings. Kataka and Nicole explained about the chakras and we did some deep breathing exercises, some yoga stretches, a bit of chanting and then Kataka blasted us with a Didgeridoo as we lie on the floor in a relaxed state. It was quite amazing. Afterwards, I felt very relaxed and yes, I did indeed feel 'balanced'. I would recommend Nicole or Kataka for Yoga or Reiki practice and instruction. They are very enlightened souls and I am happy to have taken their Energy Alignment Workshop. Thank you ladies! :)

In the development of physical fitness programs, yoga demonstration and instruction, Nicole Ulrick is a superb health care professional. She has an optimistic, supportive and curative personality that makes her a tremendous asset to anyone fortunate enough to benefit from her expertise and nuturing guidance.
J.W., Beverly Hills, CA
It's amazing when you come across a studio that has great instruction, real care for the students, friendly vibe... and wonderful yoga! This little studio has it all and I highly recommend it. Go... you won't be sorry!!!
Christina, San Francisco
Homey, stunning and serene neighborhood studio. I have been to many studios in LA and this one surpasses any typical yoga class setting. Incredible teachers, personal attention and a warm, blissful atmosphere. You really feel a sense of community, relaxation and a good workout after a long day. It's the kind of studio you want to go to regularly because you just feel great when you walk out the door! It's a 10 plus and that is hard to come by in this town.
Sarah Nehamen, Santa Monica
This by far is one of my favorite yoga studios in Los Angeles. No matter what your level, from beginning to advanced, the instructors teach in such a way that each class feels almost like you are receiving a semi-private session. I also like the focus on alignment while emphasizing strength and flexibility. The classes draw on the best of the best from many yoga styles, which is something I appreciate a great deal and the studio itself is a real gem.
Leah t., Los Angeles, CA
I love this little gem of a yoga studio. classes are small so there's lots of attention for each student. Atmosphere is lovely and people are very nice.
Emily Burton, Silverlake
I've been practicing at ThirdEye Yoga
for a couple months now and I can't say enough good things about it. It is like practicing among friends in a peaceful, no pressure (does not mean no challenge!) environment. This is NOTHING like going to a large studio! It's the style of yoga one dreams of. Going straight to the source, practicing in a studio run by the teachers evokes a grassroots feeling that seems to adhere to the ideals associated with a yogic practice. I've taken classes with Emily, Anna, and Nicole and their styles all vary, but their skills, attention to detail and love for the practice are all top-notch
I have had the pleasure of teaching several different Thai Yoga Massage workshops at ThirdEye Yoga
Studio. The participants and I really enjoyed the historic architecture of the building, the ambience created by the classic courtyard with its fountain, and the beautiful hardwood floors of the studio. We found it to be a wonderful experience and Nicole's friendly and efficient hosting made it very welcoming. Truly a gem of an intimate space in the heart of West Hollywood, with the magnificent flair of Old Hollywood still very much there.
Deon de Wet
Thanks again for an amazing yoga practice this evening! I love how connected you are with the body and spirit in your teaching style. It's comforting, assuring and encouraging, thank you.
ThirdEye Yoga Studio
is a hidden gem. Its entrance is hidden in the back of a lush courtyard with pond, and given its location in the center of WeHo it is like stepping through the looking glass. There is immediate peace, tranquility and a sense of wonder, even before entering the little studio. Yes, it is not a huge place packed with facilities, but that was not what I was looking for. This darling little studio shines in its personal care, intimate design and talented instructors. I was there do do the 'Technique of the dragons meditation' on Thursday evening and although I have done several types of meditation, I was pleasantly surprised by the innovative technique that was being taught. It is simple yet profound and easy to use by myself. What I loved most is that it opened me up to my own 'magic'. I will be coming back to this place.
