Naam yoga was founded by Joseph Michael Levry, who was born in the Ivory Coast.
In 2011 he opened Naam Yoga Los Angeles, a 501c3 non-profit organization in Santa Monica, California,[not in citation given] which has since been the main headquarters for the organization. Naam Yoga LA has an outreach program for the area of Santa Monica, known as Giving Naam.
Levry has led three global Naam Yoga Superclasses in Mexico City which are free public meditations dedicated for peace: Zocalo (12,000) in 2011, Revolution Monument (15,000) in 2012 and the Angel of Independence (21,000) in 2014.
Rootlight, the publishing arm of Levry's Naam yoga, has published 36 meditation music CDs which are designed as tools to be used within Naam Yoga classes. Levry has written six books about his yoga techniques, most of which are published by Rootlight.
