It was 27 years ago that Fr. Joe and Guenter Oberschmid met for the first time. After which this bondage of friendship grew stronger and stronger in between the two through yoga and in his support to Fr. Joe in his work of addiction. Street children and children living with HIV.
It is her in Bergelingen which is really the perfect place for a quiet and peaceful yoga retreat that Fr. Joe comes year after year to teach and conduct yoga Iyengar yog workshops. This year at Waltrud and Gunther' yoga workshop the participants were treated to special cuisines prepared by Michael, the Ayurvedic cook. The yoga workshop of Fr. Joe was a sell out,with most participants from South of Germany. This year the Therapy workshop was more focused on " Pranayama" which was liked by all participants. But most of all on a number of occasions throughout the sessions memories and homage with great respect was given to late Yogacharya Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar, even at the daily Eucharistic Celebration conducted by Fr. Joe.
At the end of the workshop the participants were filled with positive energies, wishing that the workshop would never end.
