How Super Brain Yoga Works
Ancient yogis are believed to have discovered the practice of Super Brain Yoga thousands of years ago – but it is still just as relevant today. Research indicates that this practice can have a powerful effect on brain waves – stimulating your alpha brain waves to promote relaxed alertness. This area of the brain is related to learning, memory storage, and critical thinking.
The practice of pinching your ear lobes is believed to activate your pineal gland, which regulates your biological processes, mood, and circadian rhythms. This area of the brain also regulates the release of the hormone melatonin, which regulates your sleep patterns. Obviously, taking care of the health of your pineal glands is very important for overall health and well-being!
Super Brain Yoga is also believed to improve pranic energy. Pranic energy is related to the body’s innate ability to heal itself, which is why this technique may help to strengthen the immune system and promote faster healing.
And, by synchronizing the right and left brain hemispheres, this practice may improve your emotional balance and control, improve cognitive function, and help you to retain and process information better.
To benefit from Super Brain Yoga, you should make sure to practice it regularly – daily if possible.
