Ms. Whitney Tucker came to yoga from an athletic background in track and field. To catch up to her fellow dance majors, she was drawn to study Vinyasa, Hatha and Iyengar Yoga.

Over the last twenty years, she has completed over 600 hours of yoga teacher trainings including Tibetan Heart Yoga, Earth Yoga NYC and The Katonah Method ©.

She has had numerous teachers and mentors and from each of them she has learned how important it is to be a life-long learner. “Inner research for outward service” remains her mantra.


Graceful, inspirational and a true coach. Whitney teaches the essence of a gratuitous life on and off the mat. She is always available for her students after class and she is a wonderful woman to work with. Her classes are incredibly diverse; a testament to her genuine style and ability to teach anyone - no matter the age, sex, background or fitness level. Whitney embodies our brand’s values of empowerment and what it means to reach our limitless potential. We are lucky to have her.
