Astrud has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe, sharing her passion for Mantra Meditation and Bhakti Yoga.
She leads annual retreats to India and teaches Bhakti Yoga to teachers in training around the U.S. and is currently working on her second album.

“Astrud’s kirtans immerse the mind in a sea of sacred sound and melt open the heart.”
“Astrud’s Kirtan is filled with a fiery passion that draws us uninhibitedly into the practice of Bhakti Yoga with love and a heart filled with feelings. As a student AND as a teacher Astrud never stops her explorations into the soul and path of devotion.”
