Guided yoga nidra aural meditation
Yoga nidra is "sleeping yoga" - the idea is that you can receive all the calming benefits of yoga even whilst asleep. Spreebytes' Yoga Nidra Meditation app will guide you through sessions of this kind of yoga through soothing audio files.
Get comfortable and follow the relaxation instructions given by the female voice in the audio. Either listen to her on her own, or add in whatever background music you like from your device on loop. You can also choose whether to have a bell at the end or not; if you're planning on falling asleep, you may want to turn this option off.
The free version includes a 7-minute long guided meditation; the premium version includes longer audio files for extended sessions.
More in-app information regarding the theory behind yoga nidra would have been nice for me.
Spreebytes' Yoga Nidra Meditation is another tool in your arsenal in the daily battle for ultimate relaxation.
Enjoy the deep relaxation, stress relief and benefits of guided meditation without prior experience through the simple meditation technique of yoga nidra.
Just a few minutes of practice will improve your peace of mind, focus and mental clarity.
Unlike other meditation practices, yoga nidra works even if you get bored, your mind wanders, or if you even fall asleep. In fact, yoga nidra originated as a way of receiving knowledge during sleep, so even if other meditation methods have not helped you in the past, yoga nidra will work for you.

- bug fixed regarding audio playback on specific devices (Dell Streak)
I love this app! I put head phones in turn off the lights and let it take me to another place. I recommend this app to anyone in need of some calming effects.
Fact that upgrading to paid service was stalled and developer did not respond makes me question this app. App delivers as a free app but that is all I can say. Without communication no good business no trust
I couldn't relax at all !
You can use youtube instead. Why to waste your apps memory?
Just did the 7 mins and I feel great already highly recommended
