Carley is a BWY (British Wheel of Yoga) teacher based in North Somerset. She teaches weekly yoga classes for her local community (which often include Yoga Nidra), pregnancy yoga (which always includes Yoga Nidra) and postnatal yoga for Mums with their babies. She also accepts a limited number of 1-to-1 students for individual yoga tuition and runs yoga workshops throughout the country. Carley is also available to cover yoga classes in the Bristol area. Carley had her first experience of Yoga Nidra in 2005 when training to teach yoga with Derek Thorne (Spiritual director of the YogaLiving Community). Derek continues to be Carley’s teacher and guide through the profound teachings of jnana yoga. As a member of the YogaLiving Community Ashram, her meditation practice is supported by regular satsang and active participation in the vibrant creative energy of YogaLiving. In 2009 Carley trained to teach pregnancy yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (Sitaram Partnership). “I was delighted to find the practice of Yoga Nidra a fundamental component of the training with Uma. I attend classes with Uma whenever possible and benefit personally from Uma’s teaching and of course the wonderful Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra has supported me during some very busy and demanding times, as a means of exploring the inner life and the possibility of diving deep into the source of being. Yoga Nidra is a powerful practice which invites inner peace and can often provide the opportunity to change. When we can consciously relax, we become more connected with our true selves and directly feel how beautiful and awesome that really is.” More information is available on Carley’s website email:

Contribute to the Yoga Nidra Network

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this services freely.

Thank You, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli, Co-Founders, Yoga Nidra Network
