I began the 5 Rites seven months ago under Michael's direction, and I have faithfully continued to practice them regularly.

Not only have my muscles improved in tone, and strength, but overall flexibility & balance is greatly enhanced.

For 15 minutes or less each day, it is amazing how much your body will thank you! Try it - I assure you, you won't regret it!!

Mary Ann MacDonald



It has been approximately 18 months since I took Michael’s Five Tibetan Rites class and have missed only a handful of days. To me it is as integral a part of my day as taking a breath. My energy each day is great, my initial weight loss has held and my flexibility has increased.  I have many friends in Boquete who took Michael’s Five Rites based on my recommendation and have only been showered with ‘thank you’. Keep it up Michael!

All the best,

Merl Will-Wallace

Dear Michael,
The benefits we have enjoyed as a result of taking the class are:

Nancy--Better balance, increased abdominal strength, improved digestion, reduced stress in shoulders. My body has become stronger and more confident when walking in uneven and steep terrain. I know this is a regimen I will do for the rest of my life.


Michael--Definitely more stamina when doing the exercises than when I first started. Nagging lower back pain has been eliminated. My balance has definitely improved which is helpful when moving about the very uneven terrain of our property. As Michael has explained, there is an energy that starts to be awakened, the energy that is our life. This is a wonderful feeling.


Thank you so much Michael for your dedication to your teaching and your students. It is an experience Nancy and I would recommend to everyone.

I definitely have experienced a very positive change and I am continuing on a daily basis. It provides me with not only feeling balanced physically, but on a higher sense of well-being as well. 

You are an excellent teacher and motivator and I thank you for making an important impact on my well-being at this stage in my life and enable me to work on the The Five Rites wherever I am located.

Big hugs, Gina Goh

I have maintained my Five Rites practice for almost a year.  It is a discipline that I can squeeze into the busiest of days and do anywhere - including extremely small hotel rooms.  It  wakes me up and gets me moving in the morning, clears out my cobwebs, and energizes me for another day on this beautiful planet.

Michael...prior to starting Five Rites I experienced difficulty recovering from a squatting position which would be repeated multiple times daily as I gardened and performed like tasks. Within weeks of starting the Five Rites there was a marked improvement which continues daily. This among other improvements.  I highly recommend this program.

My wife and I went to Michael's August class. I thought just five simple exercises...what's the big deal? 

I am 68 years old. These exercises are life changing!!

My legs, which were weak, are getting stronger.  My whole body feels more energized! Just for the few minutes I put into this every morning! This is the best investment for my health that I have ever made!! 

The Five Rites came along in my life now and is exactly what I needed.

Thank You Michael for making the Five Rites a part of the rest of my life, at least in this lifetime on earth.

I took Michael’s Five Rites class two months ago. It was a one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I have been doing the exercises every day and can really feel the improvement in my physical and mental health.

I had a bad shoulder injury about a year ago with a result of 4 pins in my shoulder and a metal plate down my arm with another 3 pins holding my shoulder together.  Since I took the rites class and continue to do my exercises every day it has helped the mobility of my arm and shoulder and totally relieved the discomfort I had with that metal plate in my arm!  I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone!

—MERL WILL-WALLACE, Boquete Resident & Businessman says   “Ten weeks ago I took the Five 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." 

--ADRIANA SPITTELER, Boquete Resident says


Michael has been one of the best teachers I've had. I joined his "Five 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 "Five 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! 

--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             

—CLEO, Boquete Resident says   "I am 74 years old and a few months ago I attended The Five 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 Five 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."
