Yoga is meditation, movement, sound, service, stillness, community, self-compassion and more. Yoga reveals what is already here; our inherent healing capacity, our wholeness, our connection to self and others.
Tucker’s passion is to support others in exploring yoga through movement (asana) and meditation. Many years of practice and teaching have deepened her love and appreciation for the process that is yoga.
Her teaching comes from the foundation of a strong personal practice and the belief that yoga offers us tools for profound transformation and healing. She has studied with many and varied teachers, including in the Iyengar tradition and the tradition of Krishnamacharya. Tucker is certified through the Integrative Yoga for Seniors Professional Training Program at Duke University Integrative Medicine. She is a certified iRest© Yoga Nidra Mediation teacher, has completed a Yoga Anatomy program with Leslie Kaminoff, and studied Satya yoga movement with Tias Little in Santa Fe. Tucker is dedicated to ongoing learning and follows developments in the fields of biomechanics, yoga, neuroscience and meditation. She is profoundly grateful to all her teachers, and to her students who are the wisest teachers of all.
Tucker teaches a foundational style of yoga, focusing on moving slowly to build strength, balance, resilience, and integration of movement, breath and attention. Her classes are about offering a safe, compassionate space to further connect movement and breath and to hone our skills of inner listening.
Tucker loves welcoming those who are new to the practice of yoga, as well as seasoned yogis. Yoga for older adults is her passion. Tucker also offers private sessions in Ojai.
