I downloaded ethereum wallet for macOS and I chose a private network, but it is taking too long when downloading blocks, it is almost not moving. Is that normal?

Why it is downloading blocks when choosing a private network? From where the blocks are downloaded? Is it from centralized servers or from peers like a torrent?
