    As We Age...Even If We Have Been Doing "Normal" Or "Conventional" Exercise, Quite Often We Still Suffer From The Following... LOSS OF STRENGTH & STAMINA LOW OR NO ENERGY BALANCE OR EQUILIBRIUM ISSUES HIGH OR LOW BLOOD PRESSURE NO FLEXIBILITY BACK AND JOINT PAIN OVERWEIGHT ARTHRITIS FYBROMYALGIA Don't Believe Me? Just Look Or Ask Around! Do You Want To Stay This Way? INSTEAD OF ACCEPTING WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT IF YOU CHOOSE TO WORK WITH THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE BODY, YOU WILL DRAMATICALLY SLOW DOWN AND RELIEVE WHAT HAS LONG BEEN ACCEPTED AS THE"NORMAL SYMPTOMS OF AGING". Why Not Choose To Be Different? Life Is Meant To Be Enjoyed - Not Endured! READ WHAT YOUR BOQUETE FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS ARE SAYING ABOUT The 5 Rites (15 Minutes Of Daily Exercise) Presented by Michael Cooper at The Haven Hotel Comments from recent attendees.... —MERL WILL-WALLACE, Boquete Resident & Businessman says “Ten weeks ago I took the Five Tibetan Rites at The Haven from Michael Cooper... For years I have had paroxysmal vertigo, which makes me sick to my stomach any time that I lay down or spin around... Within a week the vertigo was gone. Almost immediately I found I had a lot more energy. I have also lost 10 pounds with no change in diet, except I don't tolerate coffee as well as I used to (way too much energy now)...Most importantly, my stubborn high blood pressure is now normal. Overall I feel stronger, more flexible and, well, yes younger. Thank you Michael for introducing me to this miracle in my life." (SEE BELOW FOR MERL'S FULL TESTIMONY) --MERL WILL-WALLACE - UPDATE Feb 12, 2018 Michael, it has been 6 months now since I took your clinic on the five Tibetan rites and am still amazed by how increasingly healthy I feel. My energy continues to increase each week, leaving me to wonder if there is no top end to this practice and health. The five exercises have gotten easier and easier with each passing week to the point they seem effortless (even number 4, which I thought I could never do). I have to say, rain or shine, the five Tibetan rites are an essential part of my day. --ADRIANA SPITTELER, Boquete Resident says Michael has been one of the best teachers I've had. I joined his "5 Rites Clinic" in September 2017 and when I started I could not lift my head at all when lying on the floor. Michael showed me special exercises to strengthen my neck-muscles and I have fully regained my strength to lift my head, it's really incredible. I really love it and normally do my "5 Rites" in the morning. It takes me 15-20 min max, including some intermediary stretching exercises (introduced by Michael as well). Michael is not only a fantastic practitioner, but also an excellent teacher. With his skills, his passion and compassion he did instill a love for daily practice, which I never thought would suit me. I have to admit, the "5 Rites" have changed my life for the better and I thank Michael for convincing me to join his clinic. Do the same and you will see and feel positive changes soon! (SEE BELOW FOR ADRIANA'S FULL TESTIMONY) --LAURA, Boquete Resident says "Something my husband and I can do and encourage each other while doing....Notice increased stamina/strength....My clothes are and continue to get looser...must go shopping!...Now I look at my calves and wonder 'Whose are these anyway?' They look so different!...Like the convenience of doing it at home in comfy clothes...much more likely for me to keep it up if it's at home, doesn't take much time and I get noticeable results relatively quickly. Thank you Michael for all you do, Laura (SEE BELOW FOR FULL TESTIMONY) —CLEO, Boquete Resident says "I am 74 years old and a few months ago I attended The 5 Rites class from Michael. It has been very beneficial for me. Better balance, feel stronger and more stamina. I like the fact that I can do the exercises at home in a short amount of time." --BRAD DRAKE, Boquete Resident & Personal Trainer says "A year ago we began the 5 Rites exercise routine as taught by Michael at The Haven...it has become a part of my lifestyle, and a big reason I don't need adjustments anymore. I would recommend this short but powerful exercise routine for anyone and just about everyone." (SEE BELOW FOR FULL TESTIMONY) --EM, Boquete Resident says "Michael, thank you so much.... just wanted to say 2 days down but can already feel a big difference in myself afterwards. It seems to make me more energetic but also things are brighter and clearer. I am benefiting hugely from more blood flow and oxygen. Seriously, for 10 mins effort, this is a winner!"
