Superbrain Yoga is a simple exercise, becoming popular in Asian countries. This simple technique is to energize and recharge the brain. It is based on the principles of subtle energy and ear acupuncture. This powerful technique is explained in Master Choa Kok Sui’s latest book Superbrain Yoga. Scientists have found that this simple technique has resulted in very great positive results for people of all age.

Pilot studies on the effects of Superbrain Yoga on school children include children with disabilities such as ADHD/ADD, developmental and cognitive delays, Down syndrome and specific learning disabilities. Children studied showed significant increase in academic and behavioral performance, greater class participation and improved social skills. In one study, the result of an electroencephalograph showed increased amplitude in the parieto-occipital region of the brain following the Superbrain Yoga. This indicates increased brain electrical activity following the exercise. More studies on the effects of Superbrain Yoga are being conducted. This practice has been copyrighted by Master Chao Kok Sui of the Institute of Inner Studies, Philippines.

Exercise Instructions

This simple exercise is very easy to workout. Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing and have removed any ear jewellery before starting. Avoid doing the exercise immediately after eating.

  • Step One: Stand with your feet about shoulder distance apart, toes pointing forward.
  • Step Two: Hold your right ear lobe between your left thumb and finger, with the thumb on the outside of the lobe (we’re not joking).
  • Step Three: Hold your left ear lobe between your right thumb and finger, again with you thumb on the outside of the lobe. You should now be holding both earlobes with your arms crossed over your chest, right arm on top (and we’re still not joking).
  • Step Four: Look directly ahead and commence doing a body squat by slowly bending your knees and lowering your body toward the floor. Go as low as you comfortably can and then slowly raise yourself back to a standing position. Exhale as you squat and inhale as you stand.
  • Step Five: Repeat the squats for 1 to 3 minutes, or 14 – 21 times, while continuing to hold your earlobes.

Results may be immediate or gradual. Concentration should certainly be stronger within 3 weeks. The exercise only needs to be done once a day but if concentration wanes it can be repeated as often as desired.

Read it once again you will find that it is our simple “thoppukaranam”, what we have been doing in front of Lord Ganesh temple for thousands of years ago and even before that. Still not satisfied with the post? Watch the video below if you still don’t believe it.

Note: The reason for underlining the texts “have been” above might be understood. Just think how many of us do this practice nowadays. We hesitate, we look around and feel ashame for what others give money, get up early and practice regularly…. Looks funny but think!!!

I don’t understand whether to feel happy for every traditions in India, being rediscovered and proved scientifically or feel ashamed that they are being copyrighted by other countries….
