Duane Wiafe
Strong by Zumba™

Duane Wiafe is a registered social worker and a group fitness instructor. He began his fitness journey training his body to preform as a youth athlete. In 2017 he tried his first SBZ class and he was addicted. STRONG by Zumba® is the best format out that could replicate the athleticism he needed while playing basketball and running track and field. Duane advocates that physical wellness is an important part of managing mental and emotional challenges.
Strong by Zumba helps him to stay fit and to parent 4 active children. Duane teaches several group fitness formats but STRONG by Zumba® is where his passion lies.
STRONG by Zumba® is NOT a dance class. It combines body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training moves synced to original music that has been specifically designed to match every single move. Every squat, every lunge, every burpee is driven by the music, helping you make it to that last rep, and maybe even five more. There are modifications for all fitness levels.

I am a Non-Denominational Ordained Minister, I’ve had a keen interest in self-help and spirituality for the last 20 years of my life. I spent eight years working with a doctor holding study groups, meditation groups and facilitating workshops which he and I developed. During and after my time with Dr. Johnson I found the Ishaya Monks, in total I spent eight years traveling around with them. I eventually took vows and became an Ishaya for a year. During my time with the Ishayas, I would go on meditation retreats for up to two months at a time. After I left the Ishayas, I attended Western University to study Psychology and English for a period of two years. I have training in a few different healing modalities. Other courses I have taken include Palliative Care, Toast Masters (to learn how to become a professional speaker). I have a native spirituality course and was fire keeper for a sweat lodge. Over the years I have facilitated workshops and talks in schools, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Rogers Daytime TV and been a guest and a host on CHRW radio at Western University. Currently, I am a self-employed artist and I have been in business for the last 25 years. I have volunteered as a Big Brother (eight years), Palliative Care Support Worker (one year) and worked with special needs children and adults (three years).
Workshops I have taught over the years include, Become a Gentle-Man, Meditation and Journey to the Hearts Riches.
