Yoga Nidra Meditative Relaxation

Take some deeply nourishing time to connect within during this guided Yoga Nidra meditative relaxation practice. These 30 minutes of self-care can be done seated or lying down, eyes open or closed.

Save this page and use as often as possible!

Why not …

  • try it daily for a week and notice what happens
  • commit to 3 times a week for a month and see what happens
  • share it with a friend who could use some down time
  • introduce your children to it and see what they think

Through complete relaxation we live in the solid present, overcome our fears … of the future, and welcome life’s demands with strength and courage.

—Swami Vishnudevananda
