Our Founder, Dr. Joseph Michael Levry

It is our honor and privilege that our founder, Dr. Levry teaches Shakti Naam Yoga Master Class, Thursdays 7-9pm at Naam Yoga LA when he is in Los Angeles. Don't miss this opportunity to experience this gift to learn directly with Dr. Levry.

Dr. Levry is an internationally renowned spiritual leader, mystic, composer, author, and lecturer on the topics of self-healing, practical spirituality and self-actualization. Having extensive education and experience as an engineer and in metaphysics, he has developed Naam Yoga®, a compilation of the most effective yogic sciences and self-healing tools that have been passed down to him through the lineage of Guru Nanak, Nanak's son Baba Siri Chand Ji. One of Dr. Levry's spiritual journeys in India led him to a secret and ancient yoga practice, Sukshma Vyayama, hardly known to the Western world. This tradition has become the basis of another form of Naam Yoga called 'Shakti' Naam Yoga known for its capacity to bolster health, strength, counter aging and increase resilience.

In addition, Dr. Levry is the president of Rootlight, Inc., a publishing, production and consulting company, which produces sacred music and books, an extensive selection of which are available at Naam Yoga LA.

Dr. Levry has also developed the Harmonyum Healing System, a gentle, relaxing, non-invasive, hand's-on healing modality, which directly sends healing to the source of the nervous system, brain and heart. Harmonyum Healing is a transcendental healing system that allows the subconscious mind to release deeply rooted negative patterns, and is being embraced by doctors for its ability to facilitate change at the root level.
