The NAP Meditation is a companion video for Happy Hips practice (yogamate.org) but it can be helpful for everyone. The NAP Meditation is an acronym that stands for Neural Larynx, Apposition of the Diaphragm, and Pitch. In, Dr. G describes how to achieve optimal functioning of the three diaphragms of the body - which make up your VOICE, your BREATH, and your SEXUAL health. Because when it comes down to it, there's nothing more important than your ability to communicate and connect. The breath is the crux of the health of all three of these diaphragms, and what's more, learning the NAP Meditation can help decrease pain, manage injury, and prevent chronic disease. The neural mechanisms that support this evidence-based breath are more complex, but Ginger makes the NAP Meditation a simple, accessible practice. Anyone can benefit from it. When you are stressed, need to improve your speaking (or singing) voice, or need a brain reset, remember to NAP!
