    This video was really fascinating. He is so concentrated and focused on his movements. I thought some of his breathing movements (holding stomach in and releasing) was really interesting as well as I have not seen this before. This practice does not look relaxing or peaceful, but I am certain it is for the individual.

    It is so fascinating to me to watch film from the beginnings of modern yoga. In this video, the majority of the physical practice was lying on the group or close to the ground. Modern day yoga in western culture, in some places, evolved into what can feel like a gym class. I appreciate the simplicity and discipline required to practice in the way represented in the film. The breath control, alone, takes incredible dedication to cultivate.

    Amazing I've been doing yoga for like 2 years already and I've gotten flexible, like I couldn't even touch my toes and now I can bend my back and open my legs!

    The amount of flexibility and core strength need to complete some of the poses is crazy to think about. It's not hard to understand how practicing this type of yoga can result in greater physical health.

    This is so interesting. To me this is extreme yoga, meaning it takes years of practice to master. It takes a lot of specific muscle control and patience.

    This video was very interesting. I am always amazed at the yoga gurus who practice on yoga rugs – while we fuss so much about yoga mats and props. It is a nice reminder that yoga can be practiced anywhere. I am also amazed at how flexible and strong the gurus are, reminds me how much a practice can span – from beginner to very experienced.

    Pranic breathing is something a good friend of mine practices. You can tell that this individual in this film is very advanced in his yogic practice. I was amazed at how deeply he could breathe in as well as his flexibility.

    I found the deep breathing and exhales with the tough extended to be very interesting.  It seems to be a very effective release of any emotional challenges that manifest in uneven breathing patterns.

    The movements involved in this video look as though it requires great strength and balance. None of which I would ever have. These movements shows a level of flexibility that I cannot even imagine. It all looked very painful to me, however, I was amazed at how easy and effortless he made the moves.

    There is a visible mind body connection when we can see how he uses the breath and movements together to release tension in the body and stretch the muscles.

    when morning times is best time for doing all execercies for medical purpose, weight reduce. Because, morning time our stomach is absolute empty not like other times. But, very difficult to do exercises or yoga in morning time.

    But this is order to try some yogas. easily you can do.

    first frog walk to relax thighs this is very important

    1) dhurashan(back)
    2)Paschimottanasana (for upper adnomin)
    3)charkraasna (using ur house wall)
    4)Ushtrasana (chest)
    5) Padahastasana (for lower adnomin)
    6) halasana ( all garlands better than sarvangsana and shrasna)
    7) final BAH-dah cone-AHS-anna

    I suppose this asnas more than enough.

    The core strength and flexibility he has is amazing! He must have had to build up a lot of strength to do this. Now that his strength is built up, he can effortlessly perform the movements and find relaxation from them.  Very interesting video!

    I'm always amazed at how physically fit yoga practitioners. On the outside looking in – it doesn't look physically demanding but if you've ever taken a Yoga class you know it is very physically demanding yet relaxing.

    He is very muscular and lean and you can tell he has outstanding strength.  He makes the movement almost seem relaxing yet you know it takes an enormous amount of strength and effort to move so gently and with precision and flow  I would imagine these movements help to keep his chakras open for energy flow throughout his body.

    I would like to think that someday I could be this flexible and able to control my movements so well. These moves look like such a release from stress and tension. I love the faces he makes, it really involves the whole body.  How could these movements not be beneficial?

    Astonishing stability, flexibility, and control.  It is amazing to watch his ability to change positions with minimal effort-lots of work to get to this point-but exquisite control.  Breath work and postures that focus on organs and improving health and function, not just muscle control.
