Aims: This study aimed to assess the long-term effect of SBY on the academic performance of adolescents and their gender.
Materials & Methods: Repeated measure design using purposive sampling was adopted and 324 adolescent boys and girls practicing Superbrain Yoga for three years from Mysuru District, India were involved in the study. Academic scores of adolescents from 2013 to 2016 were analyzed using Repeated Measure ANOVA by SPSS 21.
Findings: A significant increase in academic scores of adolescents in their performance (F=168.324, p=0.001) was noticed. Girls outperformed boys in Science (F=5.263, p=0.006, ηp2=0.02), second language (F=5.832, p=.004, ηp2=.02), and total performance (F=4.534, p=0.014, ηp2=0.02) with a  minimal effect size.
Conclusion: The long-term practice of Superbrain Yoga showed a positive impact on academic performance among adolescents and the gender difference in academic performance is found minimal. The cognitive enhancement practice of SBY can be implemented in educational settings.
