Punishment now becomes brain exercise
“‘Uthak-baithak’ was not devised as a punishment for lazy children to humiliate them, but to help them perform better,” explains Dr Prashant Ganapathy, an instructor for Pranic Healing Goa. “The science behind it is simple-superbrain yoga sets right the energy wiring connection in the brain by activating the acupuncture points in the left and right ears, which in turn activates the left and right brain. All humans usually function with one half of the brain dominating the other; there is no balance of energy between the intuitive and logical parts of the brain. This ‘asana’, however, will activate and energize both parts to perform in tandem,” explains Ganapathy, who will be conducting a half-day camp for Superbrain yoga in Goa for Pranic Healing Goa in November.
