The Naam Yoga Global Gathering for Peace and Healing in Z贸calo Square in Mexico City.

Naam Yoga.

There鈥檚 no shortage of bad news in the headlines lately: natural disasters, mass shootings, scandals in Hollywood, Washington and throughout the media industry. The world can be a dark place.

On November 26, two short months after a powerful 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck near Mexico City鈥攃ollapsing buildings and leaving more than 200 people dead鈥攖housands of people from all walks of life gathered to spread some light.

The Naam Yoga Global Gathering for Peace and Healing recently drew more than 318,000 participants to Z贸calo Square in Mexico City.

Naam Yoga founder Dr. Joseph Michael Levry led the massive free yoga class from a stage where superstar Ricky Martin had just performed a concert hours before. The event aimed to contribute to peace and healing through the power of global community, positive human intention and focused meditation.

鈥淭his was our sixth Global Gathering for Peace and Healing in Mexico City,鈥 said Dr. Levry. 鈥淎fter the devastating earthquake that happened here in September, we felt that it was more important than ever to bring healing energy and a sense of peace to this part of the world.鈥

In addition to those who practiced in person at Z贸calo Square, people from all over the world took part in the class remotely via a live television broadcast on the Televisa network and online via livestream.

Naam Yoga combines eastern and western spiritual sciences to achieve renewed strength, energy, youth, health and vigor. The practice also incorporates mantra meditation that employs harmony, rhythm and breath in precise mathematical formulas designed to recalibrate the body, open the heart and unite all participants in one intention for peace.

鈥淲hen hundreds of thousands of people come together and align their consciousness to focus on thoughts of peace and healing, the powerful waves of energy generated by this calibrated vibration can cause a tremendous healing impact upon our world,鈥 explained Dr. Levry.

That鈥檚 a massive, global wave of positive energy at a time when the world really needs it.

It鈥檚 also a great reminder that we all have the power to send a few extra good vibes out into the universe, whether it鈥檚 at a 300,000-person yoga class or at home in our everyday lives.
