 "Introduction to Yoga" workshop


My name is Wafaa, it means Love in Urdu, loyalty in arabic. So the equivalence of my name in sanskrit is Prem. Im a bubbly lady who is fluent in  French, English and Arabic.  i dabble in Spanish and Italian.

I graduated from Sivananda Yoga TTC in the Bahamas with the "Yoga Siromani"** Diploma. The Sivananda vedanta center trains future peace leaders & responsable citizens of the world in yogic disciplines. This program was initially created by the first Yogic master to bring the knowledge of yoga and Vedanta to North America, Swami Vishnudevananda & Sivananda. 

 Being of service to others begins with a loving behaviour and i love bringing out the best in my surroundings.  

Teaching yoga is my passion, my calling. I have been a yogi practitioner for over 10 years. A calling that started a long time ago and manifested throughout my former jobs in many ways: 
-By working with a wonderful team and assisting people abroad in dire need of medical assistance. 
-By aiming for higher results while being driven, solution provider, proactive and detail-oriented.

-Volunteering with many charitable organizations in Canada and abroad.

My Yoga teaching involves thoughtfulness, mindfulness and gentleness that i easily convey through my soothing voice & energy. 

My beliefs: Do good, Be good. I believe the world desperately needs more peacemakers, restorers & altruists of all sorts.

**Siromani In Sanskrit means jewel of the Crown of yoga. This title means a lot to me as it symbolizes the Bliss Absolute,  the wisdom.

About Wafaa.....

Wafaa PREM (Love in Urdu & Sanskrit)  was affectionately nicknamed “little Gandhi “ by her peers when she was working in the corporate world (and loving it ! ) because of her all land positive energy,  calm, steady pace & conciliating, soothing voice. Gifted as she is to catalyze good energy in others, her colleagues enjoyed her meditation capsules during breaks and later encouraged her to pursue her vocation through yoga.

Practising yoga for ten years helped her grow stronger, non-judgmental and wiser both on and off the mat: At work, it kept her centred while alleviating stress around her. During her studies, it enabled her to stay focused. In her personal spiritual journey, it made her grow, blossom inside and be more accepting and less expecting.

Through constant practice, she ultimately became her better self while embracing some lingering weak spots of hers ( Indulging in occasional midnight snacks: Ghazal Horns* or poutine Yum! :)

Following her calling, she enrolled in The Sivananda Yoga Teachers' Training Course (TTC) and headed to their Ashram on Paradise Island, Bahamas.

She met wonderful yogis from all over the world, and together they formed a beautiful, healthy and universal family.

After intense weeks of Ashram living spent studying, practising, learning and transforming herself on the physical, emotional and spiritual level, she graduated with the title of Yoga Siromani, which means jewel of the crown of yoga. A humbling, rejuvenating & transformative experience of a lifetime that reinforced her deep belief that what brings us together is strong than what pulls us apart.

Because every day is a gift that comes in different flavours & seasons. So do her class. Before starting the course, she paces its energy to enable fellow yogis to deepen their practice at their pace.

At the end of each class, there is a new beginning.  Seeing bright smiles upon yogis faces is her ultimate reward.

Wafaa defines herself as a curious and mindful lifelong student who continuously expand her teaching abilities by participating in yoga related workshops on a regular basis
