  1. Tried to watch it but the "music" was unbearable. Tried with only the captions-subtitles but too distracting.

  2. Exercise 3. Pls let the head also hang down. This overstreched position is not good for the neck. Greetings from physical therapie

  3. Not very proper & distinctive, animation is showing some other forms & postures than the models. Model video snaps and then elaborated animated characters ! Different and not streamlined postures which creates confusion and are enough to make us puzzled up. Being on a level of highly successful youtube channel, you all ppl should use expert living models only. Not unclear poor animation cartoon figures. Rest of the all are good in the video. Content is very helpful, but unluckily it didn't for the above said reasons. Its a bit frustrating. Hope you guys take care from next videos. I'm a regular visitor viewer of Bright Side. I luv u all all guys.

  4. All these things were originated in ancient India. Indian civilization was much more advanced at ancient time than other parts of the world. Yoga(meditation) and Ayurveda are some of the most prestigious gifts from Bharat to the world. Now India is going to get its true identity once again. Jai Hind.

  5. The exercises are good, but unfortunately the commentator irritatingly mispronuniciates and says Qi Gunn , when he should be sounding like Qi ( Chi ) GONG.

  6. Steps are very fastly described….respectfully requesting to make slow videos sections wise… thankful if do

  7. Yoga is the best way to stay healthy and young.
    I wouldn't say anything here as I want anyone reading this to practice at least once to know what if feels like and how great it is!

  8. These exercises have helped my back pain,its not easy working in Arabic countries and thanks for everything

  9. It's yoga an ancient Indian yogic culture dating 1000 of years back ….. Bright side can fool the world not Indians the land of yoga
