Most of us are familiar with yoga. We probably think of it as a way of getting fit, staying healthy, relaxing, dealing with stress, and possibly even a way of improving our posture and balance. You may never have thought about yoga as a way of improving your concentration and brainpower, but that's just what Superbrain yoga can do.

We are born into this world with 100 billion brain cells, and in the first few years of our lives, our bodies are busy working to develop even more. The human brain is one of the most complex things in the universe. As we learn, we are constantly developing new brain pathways, and since our brains are immense, delicate machines, it's important that we take good care of our brains. The simple exercise of Superbrain yoga is one of the best ways of doing that.

What Is Superbrain Yoga?

Superbrain yoga is a special yoga that is a scientifically validated method of exercising and nurturing our brains. It keeps our brains working efficiently and even enhances their functionality so it's easier to keep our brains psychologically balanced. It may even make us smarter and is especially useful for hyperactive children and those who are aging, autistic, and suffering from ADD/ADHD.

All these benefits of been researched and authenticated by Dr. Joi Jones out of the University of California. The practice is based on the idea that our brain needs exercise in the same way we exercise the other muscles of our body. Super brain yoga can improve the brain's capacity to learn, make it easier to concentrate, and help with memory issues.

What Is It Based On?

Superbrain yoga follows the same principles as acupuncture. It's all about taking energy and bringing it up to the brain so it can function more efficiently. It combines the power of acupuncture and acupressure with effective breathing techniques. These balance the brain and bring energy to it when it needs it most: first thing in the morning.

By stimulating acupressure points in the fingertips and ears, Superbrain yoga can affect the energy in the brain, eyes, mouth, ovaries, parotid gland, and testes. Scans performed by Dr. Jones showed that after completing the exercises, participants saw greater synchronization between the right and left hemispheres of their brain.


The Many Benefits

This exercise technique has several proven benefits, such as:

  • Greater capacity for intelligence and creativity
  • Balanced hormones and emotional stability
  • Reduced psychological stress
  • Increased alertness and energy for thinking
  • Increased receptivity to ideas, resulting in greater creativity
  • Improved memory capacity, especially for the elderly
  • Improved function in those with ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer's, and cognitive delays
  • Increased ability to exercise self-control, Including regulating hunger and sex drive
  • A proven 25-35% improvement in cognition for children

The main benefit of Superbrain yoga is increasing energy levels in the brain in a way that has a positive influence on the entire body and even its emotional and psychological components.

One way to fix these issues could be to try turning back the clock by about 50 years. Since that is impossible, and since most of us are not interested in a monastic lifestyle by giving up our electronics and social media, how can we protect and strengthen our brains while still functioning in our interconnected and multitasking world? That's where Super-brain yoga comes in. This short, simple exercise can help us navigate the modern world with ease and grace.

How To Do It

Step-by-Step Procedure

The best time to do this yoga is first thing in the morning. For most people, it is best to face the rising sun as you do it. For the elderly, some suggest that facing north is the best direction.

Whichever direction you choose, follow these six simple steps:

  • Remove all jewelry and stand up
  • Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth directly behind your teeth
  • take your left arm and move it across your body to hold your right earlobe with your thumb and forefinger. The thumb should be in the front.
  • While leaving your left hand and arm in place, repeat on the opposite side with the right hand. Your left arm should be placed firmly over your heart with your right arm pinning it.
  • Slowly inhale and squat to the ground without letting go of your breath
  • Once you have reached the squat position, you may come back up, slowly releasing your breath as you do so

It is important to repeat this procedure between 15 and 20 times. Always remember to keep your earlobes held firmly and your tongue at the roof of your mouth throughout the entire exercise. If you are practicing with your children, you may need to start with fewer repetitions and help them work up to it. The elderly may also need time to get used to the exercise before being able to do so many repetitions at once.

Conclusion

We put our brains through an enormous amount of strain over the course of an ordinary day. Our modern world takes a toll that can be hard for our brains to manage. This strain manifests itself in difficulties with self-control, emotional stress, brain fog, and inability to concentrate. Others among us suffer from learning disabilities and cognitive delays. Still, others are experiencing diminished cognitive capacity as they age.
