Osteopenia/Osteoporosis Yoga Workshop: I have written this for students and teachers. Yoga is actually contraindicated for this population. I have special training from St. Luke’s Hospital, Chesterfield, MO for Bone Builder Yoga. I have the latest and greatest information about Osteopenia/Osteoporsis since 1992. A lot has changed.
It is such a pleasure to work at Yoga Den Yellowbluff.
After 15 years of a regular yoga routine, Wendy decided to take a deeper dive into her practice and achieved her 200hrRYT in 2021 in St Louis, MO. This is added to over 30 years combined experience in Occupational Therapy, Massage Therapy and Energy Medicine. She relocated to Jacksonville from St Louis with her husband and fellow yogi, Geoff just a year ago. She enjoys reading, sewing and making her yard a habitat for birds and native plants.
Mikayla Brooke Smith
My name is Mikayla Brooke Smith, I’m a Jacksonville native, and I teach at Yoga Den Yellowbluff. I received my 200 hour training at Yoga Den Mandarin.
In my free time you can find me being in nature, painting, or playing with my 3 dogs. I’m incredibly grateful for the Yoga practice and the Yoga Den tribe. Thank you.
