Founder of Embodied Potential 

Whitney Tucker is a diversely-educated movement trainer and practitioner that utilizes yoga, Pilates, and various modalities of athletic and strength training to live life more fully and support others to do the same.

  • She draws from various professional experiences as a contemporary dancer, certified life coach, public school teacher, and birth worker (birth doula/placenta encapsulator).

  • She is a passionate educator: teaches anatomy and biomechanics for yoga teacher training programs, performed multiple cadaver dissections with Gil Hedley, published articles in peer journals on training techniques and movement as a healing modality, presented at Congress on Research in Dance on her movement work with prostituted women and most recently helped to conceive of a technology lab for students. 

  • She manifests joy through activism and service. As a volunteer, Ms. Tucker has focused on reproductive justice with The Doula Project (2011-2015), services for homeless women and children through Hearts Of Gold (2017-2018), and most recently as a founding board member with the Vibrate Higher Foundation.
