Is there any other way to worship the Norse gods apart from joining an organized group or set of beliefs like Asatru?

To put it simply, yes.  Asatru is simply one type of Heathenry.  Other types are Forn Siðr, Odinism, and Theodism, though there are many others. All Asatruars are Heathen but not all Heathens are Asatruars.  You do not need to belong to a kindred, or even be Heathen for that matter, to worship the Norse Gods.  It's also important to note that not all Heathens worship the Norse Gods, some worship the Anglo-Saxon Gods instead for example.  Personally, I am not an Asatruar as my views aren't those of a reconstructionist, but I do identify as a Heathen.
