We know yoga nidra to be one of the most nourishing and restorative yoga practices. Practiced regularly it keeps us well, supporting us through times of suffering and difficulty, and helping people to heal at every dimension of being.
For the past twenty-four years we have been sharing yoga nidra very widely, and have been blessed by many opportunities to offer the practice in hospitals and schools, on yoga retreats, and in camps, on the road and at home, all over Europe and beyond: from the Atlantic coast of Ireland to the heart of Moscow. We are humbled by the fact that, since the lingua franca of world yoga happens right now to be English (with a smattering of Sanskrit), we have been able to share the practice of yoga nidra in our mother tongue.
But recently, as we train more teachers and travel more widely, we have been able to share the practice in Russian, Italian and Greek with the help of interpreters. Some of these bi-lingual recordings (in Italian and Russian) are now available as free downloads on the yoga nidra network site (http://www.yoganidranetwork.org/downloads), and there are also offerings from recently trained teachers delivering yoga nidra in Dutch and Swedish. These are live recordings, with the occasional sneeze or snuffle, so the sound quality is not great, but we felt moved to share these practices, because they are the start of a huge and exciting project:
Our intention is to offer from this site free downloads of yoga nidra in every European language and dialect by the end of 2013. Recordings of practices delivered in Danish, French, Spanish and German are already in process, and we already have kind volunteers ready to record practices in Greek, Norwegian, Italian and Irish. If you are interested to help create a free download of yoga nidra in your own mother tongue, then we would like to hear from you!
Please drop us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with YN LANGUAGES in the subject line and we will be in touch! Together, we feel sure that this vision can become a reality.
With great respect and love
