"Health comes from the inside out." A concept that stands true to Astrid's love of Yoga. Initially, her studies in Clinical Counselling and Exercise Science treated mind and body as separate entities. Yoga spotlighted the bridge between the two, and brought her to treat patients with a holistic wellness approach. It was after a life of competitive Track & Field and Sports, that Astrid discovered Yoga in 2002. It was a new athletic venture that became a passion and lifestyle. She took her first Yoga Teacher training in 2011 and continued to improve mental and physical performance. She recently completed her 500-RYT that bridged Traditional Chinese Medicines and Ayurveda within yoga, and is always seeking new ways to learn more about the ancient science of Yoga, Breathing and Meditation. Astrid is passionate to inspire others and empower them using her skills as a psychologist, and knowledge of the power of movement. She can be found outside of the studio exploring the outdoors hiking, swimming, and running. Fusing her scientific knowledge with ancient practices to create powerful holistic evidence-based classes and treatments Astrid teaches a wide array of yoga approaches. From a fiery core power class to a blissful yin, you can find a class that suits your needs. She focuses on the importance of posture, alignment, and core integration for invigorating and healing classes. She loves to challenge, and wants students to find their power with ease. Her teachings hope to empower and inspire and help unleash your full potential spiritually, mentally, and physically.
