Kripa Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of a Kripafoundation Iyengar Yoga® Centre in the Greater Toronto & Hamilton Area (GTHA), Ontario, Canada.
The centre will use the studio at Sunseed Yoga, St Jude’s Church, Oakville for activities until a dedicated facility can be established.
Fr Joe Pereira, Founder and Managing Trustee of Kripa Foundation, will oversee KFIY® programs hosted by Sunseed Yoga during his visits to the GTHA, and through video-link when he’s at Kripa headquarters India or on missions to spread the KFIY® treatment protocols to communities across the globe.
James Pope, KFIY® instructor, will have the responsibility of administering the program. Jim has maintained a studentship with Fr Joe for twenty-three years, including regular visits to Kripa centres in India, the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute, Pune, and teaching KFIY® weekly since 2001 at Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Toronto. In October 2014, Fr Joe presented Jim with a second KFIY® certificate which bore the signature of late Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014).
