The Bhakti Yoga Club
Our mission is to inspire positivity and resilience to empower a healthy mindset. The Bhakti Yoga Club is for open-minded students, all ages, who like to view issues by examining “the bigger picture”. It is about introducing spirituality to students from all different faiths and ethnic backgrounds. More specifically, tangible solutions based in ancient cultures to material problems. Anyone with an interest or curiosity in spiritual discourse, yoga and meditation, self-help, or simply a desire to try something new is welcome to any of our sessions.
The university community like University of Guelph, McMaster University and University of Toronto have clubs similar to this promoting Vedic principles and philosophies. With an increasingly influential “next generation” in these ever-growing communities, we also thought it was about time to bring the young people from these organizations together to discuss the ideas we were brought up with and celebrate the unity in our diversities in an academic setting. Want to challenge a narrative you were taught? We probably do too!
You don’t need prior experience with any of these ideas to join our club. Bring your own opinions, approaches to life and concerns and let’s learn from each other! Our goal is to create a network of like-minded deep thinkers on campus through chill discussions, free workshops, musical meditation and more.
TMA (Thaqalayn Muslim Association)
The Thaqalayn Muslim Association was founded in early 2012. The club was formed by a group Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim students in response to a lack of an official support network for the post-secondary Shia Muslim students in the Kitchener-Waterloo region. Although the headquarters of TMA Waterloo's activities is the University of Waterloo's main campus, the TMA aims to be accessible to all post-secondary students in the region. Thus, the TMA Waterloo’s purpose is to cater primarily, although not exclusively, to the needs of the Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim post-secondary students at the University of Waterloo, and the surrounding region, while simultaneously representing their collective voices and pursuing their ideals.Learn more
