Yoga can prevent dementia, and keep brain fit

brain power and yogaThe human brain is very sophisticated and has powerful potential. However, to make the most of it, the brain has to be kept active through exercise, and be nurtured just as any other part of human body.

Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, the foremost and present day authority in utilizing energy (prana) for healing and wellness, said, a particular technique called Superbrain Yoga, can provide the “energy fuel” that helps in keeping the brain fit and functional. It also helps in countering the age-related illness of brain, such as dementia and Alzheimers disease.

By regularly practicing Superbrain Yoga, one can gradually enhance memory, increase concentration and achieve mental clarity. The effectiveness of this yogic exercise has been further scientifically proven, which showed considerable improvements in children diagnosed with Autism, ADD and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The children showed considerable increase in academic and behavioral performance and greater involvement in class and improved social skills.

Superbrain Yoga is a modified version of the ‘squats’ (usually done by school students as punishments for misbehavior in class). The exercise helps the energy centers in the body to absorb, digest and distribute prana to various parts of the body. When done in the right manner, this exercise moves the energy trapped in the basic and sex chakras of the body upwards into the crown energy center, which controls the brain health.
