The story of how the ancient wisdom of Sukshma Vyayama and the power of the Word, the Verbum or Naam were merged to give birth to Shakti Naam Yoga.
Years ago, in the distant lands of the Himalayas, there lived a man who possesed the secret of the fountain of youth. His name was Maharishi Karthikeyaji Maharaj, a Himalayan yogic master that lived to be over 300 years of age. The secret of his long life has remained hidden from much of the Western world, that is until now…
Our story begins at the source, deep in the Himalayan mountains. The secret of Maharishi Karthikeyaji’s long life was an ancient form of yoga called Sukshma Vyayama, a precious collection of advanced techniques that free the body from the ravaging effects of disease and aging. To those that have discovered its true potential, it has become known as the yoga of immortality.
This self-healing art has been practiced by those serving some of the most demanding roles of their day, including government officials, respected scientists and elite athletes. And it is these and more advanced techniques that have now formed the basis of Shakti Naam, a powerful yogic practice that allows the body to optimally express the blueprint of its DNA, bringing out the best version of that person.
This yoga of youth and immortality first became known in India in the 1940s when Swami Dhirendra Brahmachari Ji, a devoted student of Maharishi Karthikeyaji, taught it to India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, who was later succeeded by his daughter, Indira Ghandi, also a devoted practitioner. In her own words, she writes, „My father attributed his fitness to a lifelong habit of beginning the day with Yoga-asanas. I myself was initiated at an early age. Later, when my father and I met Shri Dhirendra Brahmchari, we learnt his system of Sukshma Vyayam which I found more convenient to follow as a keep-fit routine when one is rushed for time and constantly on the move.“
The great demands of being a political leader required huge reserves of strength, clarity and intelligence and this form of yoga, was called upon to support these public figures with their sacred responsibility to their country and people. These techniques have made such a profound impact on the prime minister’s family that in the 1940s, the Indian government commissioned a film, to share these benefits with the people.
With the great advancements in technology over the last few decades our way of life has only become more demanding. Our minds are in a continuous loop of processing an endless stream of information. Most of us spend hours sitting at our desks, working on the computer. We live a fast-paced stress driven life. The changes to our lifestyle have caused detrimental effects to our health. It is for this reason that Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, a master yogi and beloved teacher, has begun actively sharing these ancient, once secret techniques through the yogic and meditative practice of Shakti Naam.
Shakti Naam Yoga enhances the body’s capacity to nourish itself, bringing oxygen to the brain, strengthening the heart, clearing the energetic pathways of the body and detoxifying and nourishing the organs.
The popularity of Shakti Naam, under the umbrella of Naam Yoga, has been growing exponentially with three subsequent world record breaking superclasses led by Dr. Levry in Mexico City and bringing a global movement of Love, Peace and Light to people from all walks of life.
Under the guidance of Dr. Levry, Shakti Naam continues to spread, being heralded as humanity’s collective gift for the New Age, a priceless offering for the benefit of all humankind.
