Why we recommend this video
This is a complete, well-rounded yet gentle practice that is as effective as the traditional form. It is especially useful when you do not want to practice but prefer not to go too hard on your body. It is a great way to cultivate inner-peace because of the softness of the movements and the concentration on the breath.
