Breeze Cates is a native of Birmingham, Al. She will gladly tell you that yoga saved her life. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, she found herself with a body, and mind, filled with unexpected challenges.
Implementing a daily yoga practice, to help combat the stress, and pain, of the disease was the next step in her journey.
In 2010, Breeze began practicing Bhakti Yoga. She found Bhakti yoga, or devotional yoga, to be the perfect entrance into the expansive practice.
Singing, chanting, and meditation, became her chosen path of healing.
Breeze, not only found healing in Bhakti yoga, she found her life’s path. In 2013, the legs that once needed a cane to carry her, walked her right into the local yoga studio. Teacher training was soon to follow.
Her classes focus on both Pranayama and the Asanas. She teaches a steady balance of the two, bringing stillness to both body and mind. With an undeniable southern accent, Breeze can be heard instructing her students to, "Breathe Y'all". She believes in breath, and the life-changing, power that Yoga has to offer. I would love for you to join me for a class on Mondays at 6pm, Wednesdays at 6pm(starting in January) & on an occasional weekend.
“That first breath in, that is Yoga. This practice is yours, it will heal you, it will make you smile..."
