Erika Was Here


Erika Fryklepak, Graphic Designer & Yoga Teacher

Most days these are two separate pair of boots. Yet these seemingly separate sets of boots manifest simultaneously. Rooted in my desire to help others grow and express their best versions of themselves / their work, and my skill in aiding the process, is my own passion for creating and manifestation. Lets work together toward yours…



Women entrepreneurs and those in the healing trades gravitate toward me for branding and website creation. They have become my client niche. ALL of my clients are people who are living their purpose, doing work that is infused with purpose; work they feel called to do. I feel enlivened to support them to do it well, and to help them educate their audiences/clientele about what is unique about their work.

I create beautiful things that reflect the important work that small businesses are doing. I absolutely love the work I do.

My design style is clean and open, infused with clarity and color. My communication style is much the same: genuine, direct, fun, and organized. Identifying what a business does, what makes it unique, and articulating the distinct values of the people who make up the organization are some of the aspects of my process.

Beyond simply creating a logo, I solve problems for my clients and create beautiful designs that reflect the important work they are doing. I love serving clients in this way. It's a creative collaboration with practical applications. If you choose to hire me, it will be me you work with, from initial conversations to presentation and finished materials in hand. That means when I create a design for you, it will be true to you and your business.

Would you like support from me in this way? Contact me.



Yoga Teacher

I practice and teach yoga (postures and philosophy) as well as sacred dance. I thrive on creating groups of soul-seeking people, and helping them to breath, to connect with self and others, and to inspire wellbeing. I have the honor and privilege of co-leading a teacher training program in the area through House of the Gathering Yoga School (HGYS). I also have my own yoga studio room I call Gnesen Yoga, out in Gnesen Township.

I have been teaching yoga since 2010, have roots within the Himalayan Tradition of Hatha Yoga, and consider myself as a small part of the evolution of Yoga in modern day / Yoga in the west. I’ve taught over 1,000 hours of yoga and yogic lifestyle classes, workshops, and retreats in a variety of settings including studios, community centers, corporate settings, resorts, cabins in the woods, and private homes.

I’ve found emphasis on relaxation and awareness, embodiment and gentle strength to be themes that have supported hundreds of my students over the years.

View current classes that I am leading, as well as trainings and retreats that are coming up. Please reach out to me to schedule a private session if you have interest in a specific area of learning within yoga / yourself, or want to get your footing in postures before joining a class setting.
