Astrid found yoga in 2001 and has completed over 400hrs of yoga teacher training since including Yin with international teacher Jo Phee. Her main love is ashtanga yoga. It’s the weaving of the breath throughout the practice that got her hooked on this style and the belief that the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind. By controlling the breath and holding the body in steady poses creates harmony. Yoga encourages a holistic view of the body and promotes a positive self-awareness. Yoga gives Astrid the means to stay focused and calm, strong and healthy.
Astrid believes the power of positive thought can bring balance to busy modern lives - her goal is to help students find that same balance.
She teaches from a functional perspective, based in anatomy. You’ll embody the muscle, fascia or function of each pose in Lee’s class. Lee also recognises that each individual is different and can help students find shapes that suit their individual bone structure, injuries/tensions, and flexibility.
When she’s not working she’s at the park or beach with three kids, playing acro yoga or enjoying the gymnastics of crossfit.
