Free yoga nidras

We are proud of this page: a diverse collection of creative and original yoga nidra tracks, unlike anything else on the web. These audio files have been uploaded by Yoga Nidra Network teacher-members, and are available for you to stream (click on the middle of the CD image) or download (click on the filename underneath) as you wish.

There are live recordings, made in cities and yoga studios, in meadows and woodlands, and recorded in English, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish. Each one gives you a flavour of a particular application of yoga nidra, so you can see for yourself what a flexible practice it can be. We trust they bring peace, healing and joy into your life.

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely so that as many people as possible can have access to the wonderful experiences that a good quality yoga nidra practice can bring. It does however take a fair bit of time and effort to maintain this site, so if you feel you have benefited from what you have heard or learnt here then please do consider making a contribution towards its maintenance and upkeep. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this service freely.

You may also want to visit our shop where there are more yoga nidra recordings available for you to purchase.

Teacher-members can add their own yoga nidra downlaods. If you're not yet a teacher-member but would like to add a practice to this collection, please contact us.

Thank you.
