What the experts are saying about “Beginners Raja Yoga”

“I like so many things about them: You have a great voice, clear and calming. Your instruction is very thorough and clear and the teachings of Yoga are especially so well conveyed and taught through the practice of asanas. The teachings are very accessible to a wide variety of people and being a real fan of Raja Yoga, I ended up loving the way you brought so much in with the practice of asana. I think someone could listen to it over and over getting more out of it each time. The idea of teaching the yamas and niyamas is great and so relevant.” – Swami Ramananda, President of the Integral Yoga Institute – San Francisco
 
“Michael is at the cutting edge of yoga in America. His approach will hopefully become mainstream in about 5 years.”
Swami Asokananda, President Integral Yoga Institute – NYC
 
“Michael has taken Hatha to the next level.” – Swami Karunananda, Director of Raja Yoga Teacher Training – Yogaville
 

“I thought the practice sessions were very well done and I think you’re providing a valuable service in attempting to reconnect the Hatha and Raja traditions. I can’t remember any tapes that try to do what you’re doing, which is why I appreciated your work so much. We’ve forgotten that once, centuries ago, Hatha Yoga was designed as a “ladder” to the discipline of Raja Yoga. Michael Plasha has done a wonderful thing in his tapes by bringing these two ancient schools back together. Within the framework of the classical system, he applies the practical lessons of Hatha Yoga to everyday life and spiritual practice. An intelligent and inspiring effort. Plasha has mastered his material (Raja and Hatha yoga).” – Richard Rosen, Deputy Director Yoga Research and Education Center Reviewer for Yoga Journal and Yoga World

“The CDs are great! Namaste bro!” – Erich Schiffmann, author of Yoga, The Spirit and Practice of Moving Into Stillness and the video Yoga Mind and Body
