Father Jo Pereira

Father Joe Pereira has been a direct student of BKS Iyengar since 1968.  He is a renowned Senior Iyengar yoga teacher as well as a Diocesan priest belonging to the Archdiocese of Bombay.  He has worked closely with Mother Teresa as well.  Inspired by both Mother Teresa and BKS Iyengar, Father Joe combined these two passions and developed the Kripa Foundation Iyengar Yoga, established in 1981, a recovery program for the chemically dependent which has grown exponentially over the years.  Father Joe holds several degrees; he has been recognized by the government of India for his distinguished contributions and service in his field, and has received numerous awards including the International Yoga Journal Karmayogi of the Year Award in 2003.

Father Joe's workshops are based on Iyengar yoga traditions of meditation, pranayama and alignment.  He uses his 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.
