Welcome!

I’m Maryem, a busy-busy bee on this planet. Like many of you, my life is a whirlwind of tasks and deadlines.


For far too long, it felt like I was always running, trying to catch up, and weighing myself down with stress and worry. It seemed that this might just be what my life was: overloaded, stretching to meet the next demand, never finding time to breathe, to look around and enjoy the moment.


Then, I discovered the world of contemplative practices, starting with Yoga and meditation... Through steady practice, I’ve found a deeper connection. While still juggling many personal and professional pursuits, I now also live in the moment and invest in the future, feeling balanced, playful, and joyous in sharing this journey.


I dedicate my heart's work to supporting a holistic, life-affirming environment for all. I aim to assist seekers in discovering and maintaining balance and stability as they navigate life. I want us all to celebrate and to serve, with kindness and wisdom, ourselves, others, and the planet.


That's my purpose - and that of the Bermudaful Centre for Mindfulness.

Interfaith/Inter-Contemplative Spiritual Companionship

Women Sitting on a Black Leather Couch Having a Conversation

Interfaith/Inter-contemplative companionship (also known as spiritual guidance and spiritual direction) is an approach that embraces and honours the wisdom and practices of multiple spiritual and religious traditions.


As your spiritual companion in training, I have studied the major world faiths and contemplative practices and continue to do so. This helps me to foster a deepened understanding and experience of spirituality that transcends individual religious boundaries.


This equips me to walk alongside you in a supportive and open way,

as you explore your own spirituality and gain spiritual insights into

your own spiritual journey.


I walk alongside you. I follow your lead. I support a holistic

and inclusive path to your spiritual growth and understanding.

CAN I STILL DO YOGA?

You don’t need to be able to touch your toes to practice. In class, you will be given options for modifications and the use of props to make sure the poses work for you and your body where you are today. The important part is to be kind to yourself and to be willing to try.

WHAT IF I WISH TO CANCEL?

If you need to cancel a yoga class or a Spiritual Guidance session for which you registered, you can get a credit - redeem it by attending the following scheduled session. Your credit will expire after that. To claim the credit, email your cancellation message no less than 24 hours before we are to meet.


No credits are extended for late cancellations.

DO YOU TAKE DROP-IN STUDENTS?

Yes, drop-in students are always welcome to my yoga classes, based on availability. A drop-in yoga class is $25. A 10-class bundle is $225.


There are no drop-ins for Spiritual Guidance sessions.

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE TO YOGA CLASS?

Plan to arrive 5 minutes before the start of class time to give your self time to get set up and settle on your mat.


If you’re coming in a few minutes late, make your way into the space quietly and join in.
