Yoga Nidra for Restorative Sleep (with Solar Plexus Chakra Music) – You Are Important

This 39-minute Yoga Nidra practice is designed to help you find restorative sleep. The practice also focuses on how very important you are.  It is a deeply calming track that contains music designed for the solar plexus chakra. It is ideal for the seasoned Yoga Nidra practitioner, but can be enjoyed by anyone. This practice does not contain any type of wording or signals to bring you out of Yoga Nidra meditation. The final 7-minutes of the practice contains only the gentle, soft music to help the listener be coaxed into sleep. It is based on the classic 8-stage Yoga Nidra technique, including a rotation-of-consciousness body scan, visualization, and sankalpa.

Special recognition and thanks to Rebecca Reads for her calming background music, Solar Plexus Chakra Note E.

  1. Hi Diana,
    I just wanted to let you know how much peace, relaxation and restorative healing I have found with your yoga Nidra practices. I practice daily, morning on wakening, and bedtime when ready to sleep, as well as in the very early morning hours before light when I often awaken and monkey mind takes over. I literally stumbled onto Nidra practices on Insight Timer and new nothing of them prior.. I had recently undertaken a MICBT mindfulness program with a neuropsychologist to deal with chronic pain and anxiety. Whilst I understood all the benefits of mindfulness and daily body scanning, I found the regime of sitting for a prescribed 45 min per day performing this form of mindfulness mostly a chore. I had to concentrate on practicing equanimity and letting go of the pain I endured when sitting, which I found counterproductive. So I looked for guided mediations elsewhere that would derive the same benefits of the scanning practices I’d learnt especially in terms of calming the nervous system and brain retraining. Lo and behold Nidra practices have been my saviour. No longer a chore, I don’t have to endure the pain of sitting, and they complement the Hatha yoga that I have practiced for some time now. I am truly thankful to you and other practitioners who offer guidance. I have sampled many of the Nidra practices on Insight Timer and have found yours and only a couple of others that connect for me. I listen to yours more than others. And by way of my own personal preference, I find the Nidra with music more calming. Thank you again. Namaste.

    1. Hi Janet! I am so thankful that you found Yoga Nidra. Thank you for taking your time to let me know how much it has helped you. You have done a lot of research and experimented with various techniques of mindfulness. Your feedback will likely help many others who are looking to overcome similar obstacles. Yoga Nidra also helped me reduce my stress and activate the parasympathetic “rest and digest” nervous system. The main reason I share my recordings is to maybe help someone else. You are that reason. Thank you for speaking up and sharing your story with me! I also appreciate you sharing that you prefer music, as this will help me plan future meditation tracks. I wish you continued success in your practice. Peace, love, joy. Namaste.
