On January 26th, Naam Yoga hosted a record setting gathering at The Angel of Independence Monument in Mexico City.
The free Naam Yoga Super Class was attended by nearly 20,000 people in person with thousands more attending around the world via live stream broadcast.
This is the fourth annual Super Class hosted by Naam Yoga. The first year, the event attracted 1,500 people and has subsequently grown to this year’s record-breaking number. “We are grateful to Mexico’s City Government and to INDEPORTE (Mexico’s City Sports Institute) who have made the space available for us and Dr. Levry for his unconditional love and support,” said Rebeca Torres, founder of Naam Mexico.
Dr. Joseph Levry is founder of Naam Yoga and an internationally known spiritual teacher. “It is our responsibility to individually and collectively contribute something positive, healing and uplifting to our planet,” he says. “To be one of thousands of people who came together in the name of peace was the experience of a lifetime,” said Jane Mirshak, Executive Director of Naam Yoga Los Angeles who was live at the event.
