Bonjour! Hi ! Hola! Salam! Shalom!
My name is Wafaa, (Wafaa means Integrity & loyalty in arabic. & Urdu (Prem. in Sanskrit)
Im a bubbly and zen 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 centre 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
I have been a yogi practitioner for over 10 years. A calling that manifested in many ways:
-Volunteering with many charitable organizations in Canada and abroad.
-Being of service to others taught me that compassion starts within oneself with a loving, respectful and professional behaviour. t
My Yoga teaching involves thoughtfulness, mindfulness and gentleness that i convey through my soothing voice & energy.
You are welcome to join us if you are in town! The first class is always free,. Namaste.
**Siromani In Sanskrit means jewel of the Crown of yoga.

WELCOME TO MY TRANSDISCPLINARY WORLD:
Wafaa was affectionately nicknamed “little Gandhi “ by her peers when she was working in the corporate sphere because of her all land composed & positive energy. Her colleagues enjoyed her "Breathing/meditation capsules" during breaks and encouraged her to pursue her vocation through yoga.
Practicing yoga for ten years helped her grow stronger, non-judgmental and wiser both on and off the mat: At work, it kept her centered while alleviating stress around her. During her studies, it enabled her to stay focused.
After intense weeks of Ashram living spent studying, practicing, & learning she graduated with the title of Yoga Siromani from the Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas. She met wonderful yogis from all over the world, and together they formed a beautiful, healthy and universal family.
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.
Through constant practice, she ultimately became her better self while embracing some lingering weak spots of hers ( Indulging in occasional snacks: Ghazal Horns* or poutine.
Because every day is a gift that comes in different flavors & 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 with trainings/workshops on a regular basis.
** Kaab Ghazal translates into "gazelle ankles," are crescent-shaped cookies made of fresh almond paste that' enclosed and wrapped in the pastry dough.**Siromani In Sanskrit means jewel of the Crown of yoga.
