From the book:
Superbrain Yoga®, a no-brainer? Suppose there was a yoga that wouldn't just give you Deepak's calm, Gaga's bod or DDP's pluck, it would actually make you smarter. No, it's not math! (Though you may want to brush up on the 'rithmatic from time to time there.)
That's what this technique called Superbrain Yoga promises, in just 5 minutes a day. We have clearly been wasting our time.

Et voila! We are all Einsteins. Er, kinda.

- 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.
