Astrid Van Wesenbeeck
Astrid is a certified iRest Yoga Nidra Teacher since November 2019. She studied with Kirsten Guest, Stephanie Lopez, Richard Miller and James Reeves. Her deeper wish in life is to support people that have lost contact with their body and their true and unique self through trauma or other cirumstances. Besides the non-dual teachings of iRest, Astrid is inspired by the teachings of Moshé Feldenkrais and Thomas Hanna. Currently Astrid teaches 2 iRest Yoga Nidra group classes a week, all of them combined with body sensing and somatic yoga exercises. Astrid's classes are unique and personal, organized to enable safe self-inquiry. Since the summer of 2019 Astrid left the city of Utrecht and moved with her partner to a tiny village in the middle of nature, just a couple of kilometers northern from the city of Utrecht. In her new home she has beautiful space to work one on one, including stunning surroundings for meditative walks through nature. Astrid combines her heart work as yoga and meditation teacher with a dynamic job at the Dutch National Library in The Hague, where she is advisor open science. In the academic atmosphere at her work, Astrid organizes daily iRest meditation sessions for her beloved colleages at the national library and at the public libraries. These meditations are also open to others.
