Teaching Team Spotlight: Jenny Tucker
What are your top 3 - five year goals?
My top three goals for the next five years are to start my own counseling business or nonprofit, attend level one, start a family.
What makes you laugh?
My dog, my husband, my friends - and all the dumb memes that my sister and I text back and forth constantly.
What was your "wake up" moment that yoga created for you?
I realized during teacher training that I was in control of my life and not the other way around.
What is the one yoga pose that you tend to come out of early/avoid/make a story about?
I avoid shoulder stand because I am scared of tweaking my back and neck and it makes me feel claustrophobic.
What is the word or phrase you say when you want to run away from something hard/challenging?
I say “Yeah, I don't know..." and change the subject.
What are your favorite non-yoga activities?
Hiking, beaching, singing, playing the guitar, reading, running, drinking good wine with good friends.
What is something your best friends would tell us about you?
They would tell you I will ask to pet every dog I ever see, that I have a loud and recognizable laugh, and that I rarely say no to good red wine.
What is the best advice you've ever received (and by whom)?
From my dad - "you reap what you sew"
What are the characteristics or qualities of your favorite teacher(s)?
My favorite teachers are supportive but challenging and call me out on the bullshit.
What do you do to inspire in others?
I inspire others by choosing to be kind.
