SuperBrain Yoga was introduced to westerners by Master Koa Chok Sui’s book SuperBrain Yoga. He also did lecture tours to demonstrate how to do it. There are other aspects of pranic healing that Master Sui has taught, but for now, this article will introduce physical exercise the boosts brain power that’s easy, effective, and needed.
Prana or Chi, the subtle life force energy that surrounds and permeates the body. It is the stuff of acupuncture and Qi (Chi) Gong. In addition to the subtle energy aspects of prana or Chi, it seems that combining this mildly aerobic exercise also improves oxygenation in the brain cells.
At any rate, this short exercise is an easy and inexpensive way for anyone to improve memory, mental clarity and focus, and even assist those with debilitating mental disorders.
Here’s How to Do SuperBrain Yoga
Standing up with your feet pointing straight ahead, spread them apart about shoulder width. Grab your you right earlobe with the thumb and index finger of your left hand. Cross over your left arm with the right arm and do the same using your right hand on the left earlobe.
Then squat as fully as you can, breathing in. That seems counter-intuitive, but that’s what you do. Breathe in as you squat, breathe out as you stand.
The breathing needs to be synchronized with the squats. Continue this motion repetitively while holding both earlobes for three minutes or more. That may be too much at first, so start with one or two minutes. One can go up to five minutes, but three is usually good enough.
This can be done by almost anyone at any age and should be done on a daily basis to lift brain fog and improve mental clarity. This exercise improves mood and is aerobic as well.
If you’re chair-bound by occupation, this is a good way to take needed stand-up breaks often and refresh yourself mentally as well as get the body in needed motion.
SuperBrain Yoga Explained and Endorsed by Professionals
Los Angeles physician Dr. Eric Robins says brain cells and neurons are energized with this simple exercise. He prescribes it to his patients and has had excellent results. One example is a young patient doing poorly in school. After being introduced to the exercise, he went on to become an A student.
Special education teachers have found it useful for their mentally handicapped or autistic students. Some teachers and parents have adopted the exercise for their own use as well, and they report improved memory and mental clarity.
According to the Yale neurobiologist Dr. Eugenius Ang, the earlobes you grab are acupuncture points that stimulate neural pathways in the brain. The brain’s hemispheres are in opposite sides of the earlobes. Using opposite hands for pinching the earlobes has to do with the way our electrical subtle energies are arranged.
In a Los Angeles CBS report, Dr. Ang showed results from EEG (electroencephalography) readings of people after doing this exercise that indicate the right and left hemispheres of the brain had become synchronized.
EEG readings measure the neuron firings in the brain via electrodes on the scalp and are used to determine brain wave normalcy and abnormality.
Dr. Ang, a young scientist who does this exercise daily states, “… in modern terms, the brain is actually lateralized.” This harmonizing of the brain’s hemispheres is an ideal but uncommon arrangement.
Expensive brain technology CDs attempt to do this by introducing audible sounds with subliminal sounds into the brain through a headset. However, they are pricey and not as proactive as the SuperBrain Yoga exercise.
SuperBrain Yoga can be done anywhere at anytime without using your debit or credit card.
