In an interview, Levry mentioned that he has been trained in esoteric arts and sciences since the age of 12 and since then he became interested in different spiritual orders. Besides yoga, he is also a master of Kabbalah, a particular esoteric method, discipline, and school of thought that is often associated with Judaism. Levry practiced, taught, studies and researched about yoga and Kabbalah for 30 years before creating and introducing his new style of yoga called the Naam yoga. Naam Yoga is a unique synthesis of the powerful teachings of Kabbalah and Yoga. People also claim that it is a blend of both the disciplines and schools of thought.
