• Workshop with Father Joe Pereira 2015



  • Father Joe Pereira first became a direct student of B.K.S. Iyengar in 1968. He has taught yoga for over twenty years and today is a renowned Sr. Iyengar yoga teacher. As an Indian Jesuit Priest he worked very closely with Mother Teresa. Inspired by both Mother Teresa and B.K.S. Iyengar, Father Joe combined these two passions and developed the Kripa Foundation Iyengar Yoga, a recovery program for the chemically dependent. Today there are more than 60 treatment facilities across India. The Government of India has recognized Father Joe’s distinguished contributions and service in his field by awarding him the Padma Shri award (in Sanskrit means “Lotus”) .

    Father Joe’s workshops are based on the Iyengar yoga traditions of meditation, pranayama and alignment. He uses asana sequences with the integration of the twelve step program to bring awareness and light to his students. Inspirational in nature, his workshops are challenging and draw students to look deeply within their yoga practice.

    Father Joe visits Canada once a year to raise funds for his charity, Kripa Foundation.  Kripa is devoted to the care, support and recovery of those affected by addiction and HIV and AIDS.  In 2009 Father Joe was awarded India's highest award by the President of India for his work in the recovery field.  Unique to Kripa's recovery program is the yoga component - healing sequences developed by BKS Iyengar specifically for Kripa.
