We all dream of and hope for those teachers in life to come along who truly embody the spirit and essence of Bodhi Satva. Beate is just that kind of special, warm hearted human who graces us with her passionate, uplifting and thoughtfully themed teachings. A powerful vinyasa teacher, kirtan artist and curious student who always pushes her capacities to learn more about the roots of yoga. Beate is all about community cultivation and preservation, and in these wild times to be alive on this planet - she serves as a grounding, motherly expert force of nature, guiding you back to joy and peace. After working with her at Tantris Lifestyle brand and observing even more growth, I highly recommend her services.

Beate is a true yogi on and off the mat. Pushing her students to see their inner light and inner strength through flow and meditation. While also, devoting herself to empowering communities in need in the motherland of yoga.

Beate’s teaching is transcendental as she offers a true and complete understanding of yoga practice. She guided us through this retreat with abundant knowledge, wisdom and kindness. It was a fantastic experience to reflect, share and connect with a great group of people, through music, meditation and yoga. Beate’s beautiful voice, energy and yoga expertise are one of a kind!
~Rachel Casal - Paris, France
I very much enjoyed the retreat. It really made me get away from everyday life. I especially liked the interplay between the two teachers which brought a lot of variety to the activities and exercises. The beautiful and tranquil desert environment of Joshua Tree and the delicious food made the weekend complete. I highly recommend this retreat and I'd like to participate again in future.
~Martin - Los Gatos CA
Beate exudes Yoga in every sense of the word. Her classes have helped my practice grow exponentially. I love that her practices are always inviting, powerful, and playful yet challenging. After you leave a class with Beate, you can feel that every inch of your body has been kissed with movement. If you’re lucky enough you'll have her sing during savasana, it is truly such a beautiful way to end a practice
~Marley Poyo - Venice, CA
The Joshua Tree yoga and meditation retreat was great!
A lot of good energy and emotions, with all amazing people which I could share my experience and soul.
The meditation part for me was the best part I really enjoyed it and the music. I learned a lot about yoga.
~Francesca Petrolo - Rome, Italy
Yoga with Beate was unlike any other yoga experience I have had! I am accustomed to group yoga classes but I was fortunate enough to do a semi- private class with Beate and a friend. It was so luxurious to be in an intimate setting. I found myself more comfortable in this setting and therefore was able to be more present throughout our session.
Furthermore, Beate has a wonderful warm and calm nature about her. She guides you beautifully through a challenging, powerful practice that is completed with Beate singing a lovely song while she plays the harmonium.
It is an amazing way to end the practice!
I highly recommend a yoga journey with Beate!
~Shireen Nickravesh, Master esthetician- Los Gatos
The Return at Joshua Tree Yoga Retreat was just the weekend getaway I needed. The accommodations were beyond my expectations. The weather was perfect. The 3 days were filled with meditation and yoga classes, nature walks/ exploration, enlightened discussions and lectures lead by knowledgeable instructors, musical evenings by the fire pit under the star-filled night sky. It was a great time of making new acquaintances/ friends, self discovery and sharing a common passion for yoga. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and can't wait to do it again!!
~T. Ashanti Mozelle – Los Angeles
This was my first yoga retreat and it has set the bar very high. The programming was wonderful, the food phenomenal, and the community so supportive and kind. It was a truly healing and heart-opening experience, and I learned so much about both yoga and myself. I left feeling renewed, more conscious of the connection between my mind-body-spirit, and so full of gratitude. Thank you Beate and Idan! <3
~Louisa R. - New York, NY
Beate’s Joshua Tree Yoga event, Return to the Land of the Soul, was my first yoga retreat. It was everything I hoped it would be, and so much more that I didn’t even know I needed. The accommodations were stylish and comfortable, the meals were delicious, healthy, and inventive. The program was extensive, rigorous, and engaging. Most importantly though, the inner healing work that began during this magical long weekend has continued to resonate. I’m truly thankful for my time in the desert with Beate and her team.
~Catherine, Educator - Los Angeles
Beate’s yoga practice is magical and filled with light! Her flow is beautiful and mindful. I was a dancer growing up and have practiced yoga for 10 years. After six private lessons with Beate, with her focused and hands-on instruction, I could suddenly do challenging headstands and backbends with ease. She is also a musician and will sing for you during final Savasana. I highly recommend her for private instruction or small group classes...she is a lovely soul.
~Caitlin Burgess, Marriage & Family therapist - Los Gatos
Beate takes grace in account when teaching a flow suitable for today’s Yogi to ascend, her class deepens new levels of awareness. I feel her studied background is authentic with a wealth of Yogic history.
~Bryan Lay, Musician, Entrepreneur - Los Angeles
I’ve attended Beate’s classes in person and online. I love her well thought out flows, they’re powerful, with variations and challenges for any level, all strung together with great insights, stories and wisdom.
Her Savasana is unique with her beautiful singing voice accompanied by the harmonium.
I’ve been doing yoga for 18 years with many different teachers. Beate’s teaching style stands out, she takes you on a Yogic journey that goes beyond the physical. Through her stories she gives the postures meaning and they become a guide for more awareness and mindfulness.
~Suzan Kuppens, Senior CMF designer at NVIDIA - Silicon Valley
In Beate’s class, you will experience the authentic essence of ancient India. Each posture she selects creates powerful awareness, accompanied by complementary sounds that transport you to the infinite wisdom within you. Beate is a master Yoga teacher who has the ability to guide you in a Yoga practice that will connect you to your inner strength and joy!

My 1st yoga retreat with Beate exceeded my expectations. It was my first time in Europe and I spent three days in Amsterdam and did sightseeing the surrounding areas before the retreat. I could already felt the genuinity, discipline and flexibility that the Dutch culture and values embody. But the retreat with Beate in the following week embraced them even more. I loved the Chakra theme of our yoga practice throughout the week, which brought a lot of variations in the Asana practice. We also did daily chantings and Kirtan sessions which really helped calm our minds down and brought us inner peace/focus. Besides the wonderful yoga practice at the gorgeous Monastery where we stayed, Beate's brothers, Otto and Albert showed us the beauty of nature, history, philosophy, arts and culture in Vught and surrounding cities (‘s-Hertogenbosch, Otterlo, etc.) through bike tours. Beate organized everything perfectly and she embraced us with pure Dutch and Yoga philosophies. I recommend that everyone should join this extraordinary yoga journey in Holland with Beate in the future!
~ Sally Zhang - Engineer at Apple Inc. - Silicone Valley
I absolutely loved my first yoga treat lead by Beate in the Netherlands. From the peaceful location chosen, to the nutritious farm to table meals, to the time spent in authentic live-giving conversation with the other yogis, Beate fostered a sense of community and unity throughout the entire week. She is a warm, nurturing, instructive, and intuitive yogi. Her yoga classes were beautifully put together, intentionally crafted towards reflection, and her harmonium playing created a soothing atmosphere to come as ourselves. All of us was welcome and I come away feeling more centered in myself, grounded in my place in the world, and mindful of my highest self for the benefit of the greater good. Thank you for an unforgettable week Beate, I look forward to the next time we get to flow together.
