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.
