YogaSlackers Teacher Ayuko Takada from Japan

Ayuko Takada

YogaSlackers Teacher Since 2024

Ayuko Takada’s teaching and training radiate with an infectious energy, skillfully blending compassion with an adventurous spirit. Her AcroYoga journey, which began over a decade ago, flourished out of her love for movement and connection. It was six years ago in Tokyo that she fully dedicated herself to AcroYoga, taking on the challenge of the flier role and delving into handstand training. For Ayuko, AcroYoga is much more than a hobby, serving as a powerful tool to unify minds and bodies while fostering both personal and community development. Her passion for nature and adventure, manifest in activities like scuba diving and hiking, infuses her with dynamic energy.

Her teaching approach was influenced by the straightforward and accessible techniques of the YogaSlackers. Participating in workshops led by Sam and Raquel, she was inspired to advance her AcroYoga and slacklining skills, culminating in her participation in the 8th YogaSlackers Teacher Training in 2023. There, she affirmed the belief that exceptional teachers empower students to master any skill through safe progressions, consistency, practice, compassionate communication and a genuine passion for sharing knowledge. Ayuko is devoted to offering practices and teachings that are nurturing, adventurous, and deeply connective.

Her efforts to elevate the Japanese AcroYoga community highlight her commitment and passion for teaching. Drawing from her nursing background, Ayuko prioritizes safety in her practice, while her adventurous spirit adds additional layers of enjoyment to her classes. If you are seeking a practice imbued with joy, an innate capacity to inspire, and a ‘let’s grow together atitude’ Ayuko Takada is the person to contact. Join her for a never ending quest to uncover profound connections between mind, body, and the spirit of adventure.
