Astrid is an E-RYT 500 Yoga Instructor and Certified Life Coach. The gift of Yoga has been a part of her life for over 25 years. She has studied with many Master Teachers and disciplines and has taught kids, adults and prenatal students.
Inspiration to become a Yoga teacher came from Bryan Kest, and she began teaching in 2000. Astrid has always believed in the power of positive and inspiring words while guiding students through class. This led her to coin the term for her classes, “Practice With A Message”.

Astrid’s pride and joy resides in her two son’s Austin and Aidan and how they honor her love and practice of yoga. She is thrilled that Yoga is a part of their lives, as they enter young adulthood.
Astrid completed her 200-hour RYT with Tamal Dodge and  her Advanced 300-hour Teacher Training (Yoga & Psychology) with Ashley Turner.
