Silica Larkin made yoga her primary physical practice three years ago, after ACL reconstruction surgery. Beginning with a mostly at-home practice of the Bikram beginning series (26). She found yoga to be such a powerful, positive tool for working on both body and mind that she decided to undertake a 200-hour teacher training to further her practice. She studied breath-centered Vinyasa Flow style yoga through North Main Yoga in Greenville, S.C. Silica's prior athletic background included training and coaching in running, triathlon, and martial arts. She believes in the power of yoga to transform us, body and soul and loves being able to introduce people to yoga and to lead them deeper into it. Ms. Larkin has done additional training in restorative/therapeutic yoga and laughter yoga and is also interested in Ayurvedic medicine.
