About The Teacher
Astrid has over 1500+ Yoga Alliance certified training hours. Her first step on the teaching path was very unexpected and her big passion for teaching got sparked in a Traditional Hatha Yoga & Meditation Teachers Training in India in 2012, followed by a 2 year Advanced Teacher Training in The Netherlands to combine the best of East & West in her teachings. She has also attended many workshops and retreats in other holistic therapies like Thai Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Psychotherapy. She has taken more than 400 YA-certified hours of Yin Yoga Teacher Training is teaching Yin Yoga and Functional/Subtle Anatomy inspired by her masters Paul Grilley, Jo Phee, Sarah Powers and Bernie Clark. In her more Hatha-Vinyasa based classes she finds a strong anchor in the breath and the alignment from within. Inspired through teachers like David Lee Lurey who combines Bhakti Yoga (the Art of Devotion) with slow Vinyasa practice. In a need for even more knowledge and self-development, and a strong desire to combine Science & Psychotherapy with Yoga, Astrid graduated in 2017 as a Yoga Therapy Teacher (IAYT-950) and is working towards the IAYT-certification as a worldwide renowned Yoga Therapist. Nowadays apart from teaching yoga classes and retreats, she is involved in Teacher Training Courses in India, Thailand and The Netherlands. Her favorite topics being Yin Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Functional Alignment and sharing her fascination for Functional & Subtle Anatomy of the human being. Astrid loves to share her passion for Yoga and fascination for what drives us. All her teachings are always in harmony with the student’s own body (we are all different) and from there she is eager to find possibilities together to learn and evolve, in which ever way the student likes to go! This personal approach and attention is a main aspect you will find in all her teachings. Grateful for all the teachers behind the teacher, she is pleased to have designed the “Physical & Functional Anatomy and Physiology” part of the 200-RYT training for One Yoga.
