Tucker's teaching style is to guide students carefully and gracefully into their bodies, offering many levels of mental, physical, and spiritual practices according to the needs and openness of the individual. His specialization is in what he terms "Longevity Yoga," or teaching sequences that are safe and powerful for yogis/yoginis to practice sustainably for the rest of their lives. Tucker is a sensitive, kind, and playful guide for those on the yoga path. He imbues his classes with love and insight and seeks to improve the lives of those with whom he shares his gifts.
