YGB is Thrilled to have Beate Sophia Scholz as its New Ambassador!

Beate Sophia Scholz, Los Angeles,

Beate started to practice Yoga in 2005 but it was not until meeting Cheri Rae, owner of Peace Yoga Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles in 2011, when something really shifted inside of her. Yoga became her true passion and purpose in life. After many years of owning a successful business in the fashion industry, she felt the call to slow down ...Yoga opened the door to leading a much more wholesome way of living and started the inquiry within.A complete transformation occurred in the years that followed in every aspect of her life. She decided to sign up for her first Teacher Training with Annie Carpenter in 2013 and in the following year she took her first trip to India to study at a remote Ashram north of Rishikesh as well as a trip to Vridavan. Beate studied with well-known teachers, Annie Carpenter (Smart Flow)  Govind Das, founder of Bhakti Yoga Shala (Bhakti Yoga) as well as a team of amazing teachers at Core Power Yoga (Hot Vinyasa Power Yoga) and received RYT 200-hour certifications from all three studios. Beate fully embraces all aspects of a Yogic life style with daily Asana, Pranayama and Meditation practice, chanting, kirtan, vegan life style and Seva.Beate teaches a strong Vinyasa flow with an emphasis on the devotional aspect of Yoga as a scientific system of well being, following the eight-limbed path by Patañjali, with the ultimate goal of Self-realization and Happiness.

“India has a very special place in my heart ever since I started the transformational practice of Yoga.

Both the culture and the people are so beautiful and familiar to me it’s almost like I have lived there in a previous lifetime.

During my month long visit to India in 2015 I was welcomed with open hearts by everyone, which touched me deeply. Yet I saw with my own eyes how rich this country is and at the same time still struggles with poverty and inequality towards women so when I discovered YGB I felt the call to get involved, first by becoming a supporter attending their annual big Fundraisers and now that I teach Yoga full time by becoming an ambassador."
