Larkin is a self-proclaimed Vinyasa Vixen who teaches accessible and challenging classes that are rooted in the power yoga tradition. Larkin began seriously practicing yoga as a means of coping with the stress of grad school and quickly came to realize that it was essential to her survival-on and off the mat. It is Larkin's hope that her students are able to cultivate all that she herself is able to uncover in her own practice - their courage, strength, resiliency, and sense of play - by getting out of their heads and into their bodies.
Larkin is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT-200 Certified Vinyasa Instructor, having completed her 200-hour RYT through Hotbox Yoga (2013), holds her Certification in Trauma-Informed Yoga through Street Yoga (2016), for which she is a Community Ambassador, and additionally is a certified CTA through Wild Abundant Life. Larkin is a certified Barre Instructor through Double Love Philly. Larkin is a Certified MELT Method Level 1 “Hands Off Bodywork” Instructor, and is currently pursuing her Level 2 and beyond. Larkin holds a Bachelors of Arts in Human Rights & Cultural Anthropology from Bard College, where she minored in Dace, and her Masters in Social Policy from the University of Pennsylvania School of Policy & Practice.
When not at the studio, Larkin is traversing Philly by bike (her moving mediation) or re-reading the Harry Potter series.
