Astrid offers Vinyasa yoga, Restorative yoga and yoga Nidra. Astrid´s Vinyasa yoga focuses on fluid sequences, creative transitions with the goal of using the asana as a tool to bring you closer to a happier, truer and more optimal way of living. Astrid encourage you to live yoga off the mat. Yoga is a lifestyle rooted in philosophy rather than workout (but it is a very good supplement to your training if your goal is to gain more flexibility too). Astrid’s classes put an emphasis on what feels good in your body – for you to listen in and be aware to take optimal choices, so the strength and the awareness you practice on your mat will help you off your mat.
Astrid found yoga in 2008 when she studied dance. In the beginning, she used the practice as a tool to breath and to increase her flexibility in dance. She practiced with a book on her own and didn't find it enjoyable. But she believed it was good for her. While studying Personal Trainer in Bali in 2010, she and three other students, out of 80, went regularly to yoga practice. During that time, she understood that there was a philosophy behind the asana-practice, and her interest in yoga increased. When she discovered Vinyasa yoga, she totally felt like home. Creativity, movement, music, singing, and philosophy – everything sewed together in one package.
Astrid completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with Atman Yoga School, registered with Yoga Alliance, in July 2017. After graduating from AYS, she has been teaching at Cama Yoga, Magnat Performance Center (groups and private), Joy Yoga as well as teaching in festivals like Yogaweekend in Geilo, assisting at Movement and Arts festival in Oslo, and held classes at conventions. Astrid also hosts week long retreats and weekend retreats. Next retreat coming up is a 10 days retreat to Aruba, Island Yoga, "Yogagirls" studio, in March 2020.
Astrid is currently enrolled in the Atman Yoga School 340 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training and teach public classes weekly at Joy Yoga. If you are in Oslo and want a dynamic Vinyasa class, you are more than welcome to her classes.
