For those of you who may have not heard about it until now, super brain yoga exercises are an excellent way of energizing and stimulating your brain. And in today’s world, we all know how we are forcing our brain through sleepless nights, parties, tight deadlines and other not so pleasant conditions. In order to maximize your results, you should set up a routine and a special quiet place in your home for it. Let’s have a look at the most often used super yoga brain exercises!
This is a very simple exercise you should be doing every morning. First, you need to remove any jewelry you have and wear loose clothes. Secondly, hold your right earlobe with the thumb and the forefinger of your left hand. Place the thumb in front. With your right hand, do the same thing for the left ear. The left arm needs to be inside the right arm. Inhale slowly and squat to the ground. While exhaling, go back to the initial standing position. Repeat this exercise at least 14 times more.
Two-Legged Forward Bend
Sit down on the floor. Stretch your legs in front of you. Inhale slowly and, as you inhale, bend forward until you get your head as close to your knees as you can. Maintain this position and try to relax your body. One of the super brain yoga benefits in general, and of this exercise, in particular, is the fact that it helps relax the spine, thus relieving stress and anxiety.
Also called Bhramari pranayama, the bee breath is a simple technique. Simply sit up in a quiet place. Close your eyes and smile lightly. Pay attention to the body and to what you’re feeling in every second, while listening to the silence. Put your index fingers on the cartilage between the cheek and the ear. Take a long breath in and while you breathe out, place a gentle pressure on the cartilage. Press it in and out and make a loud humming sound, just like a bee. The sound will calm you down and you will be able to focus better. A loud sound is better for focusing, though you can also make a low-pitched one.
Also named Sarvangasana, the shoulder stand is one of the simplest super brain yoga exercises. Lie on your back and put your feet up in the air. Stretch them as much as you can. Use your hands to support your back while you support the feet. Keep them as straight as possible in the air. This exercise is great for strengthening your spine and the muscles in your feet. Moreover, it stimulates the thyroid and parathyroid glands.
Of course, there are many other such exercises, but regardless of which one you choose, it is important to follow a routine and to respect it. Remember to set up a quiet corner for you to use whenever you want to work on these super brain yoga exercises!
