I took my current body in 1951 in Guyana. In 1965, while living in Trinidad, I instinctively began doing yoga postures and trying to make sense of the supernatural side of life. Later on, in 1970, in the Philippines, I approached a Martial Arts Master named Mr. Arthur Beverford. I explained that I wanted a yoga instructor. Beverford identified himself as a disciple of the great yogin, Rishi Singh Gherwal. Beverford taught me the traditional Ashtanga Yoga with stress on postures, attentive breathing and brow chakra centering meditation. In 1972, I entered the Denver Colorado Ashram of Kundalini Yoga and took instruction in Bhastrika Pranayama and its application to yoga postures. Later in 1979, I formally entered the spiritual society founded by Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada.
I no longer participate in any formal spiritual groups or societies; however in recent years, I've devoted all my time to writing as much as possible on multiple interpretations of the Bhagavad Gita including a focus on kriya yoga, karma yoga, and brahma yoga. I've also translated the Uddhava Gita and provided a detailed commentary of the masterpiece. Most of my work is deeply philosophical and psychological in nature and is a reflection of a lifetime of dedication and austerity towards passing on the knowledge of those who instructed me.
My speciality is kundalini yoga and advanced meditation which was explained by Patanjali Mahayogin, as samyama which is the sequential development of linking one’s attention to a higher reality, first with special effort, then spontaneously, and finally without effort and continuously.
inSelf Yoga™ is the ashtanga process of complete transformation of the psyche of a yogi. Its syllabus was given by Patanjali Mahayogin in the Yoga Sutras. It has physical and psychological applications and reins in the lifestyle of the ascetic.
On the basis of his practice using the current body as well as what he recalls from many past lives of yoga austerity, Michael Beloved teaches this process as kundalini yoga and naad sound absorption meditation. The kundalini yoga has kapalabhati/bhastrika as the primary means while absorption in naad sound vibration in the head of the subtle body is the meditation focus. His books are the academic procedures this course.
