See below for the best positions for lying to listen to these yoga relaxation tracks. 

Absolute comfort is important, so do not remain in an uncomfortable position. 
The audio tracks talk you through how to get comfortable lying on your back as shown below.
Please consult a yoga teacher for advice on how to get more comfortable.
It is possible to listen to the tracks whilst sitting symmetrically in an arm-chair, but being horizontal is generally better.
It is also possible to listen to the tracks whilst lying on a bed, but the firmness of the floor is better for alignment of the body and joints (try putting even padding underneath you, if the floor feels too hard).

Exhale when you move to enter and exit the positions.

 1. Most Useful Position for Yoga Relaxation if you suffer from lower back problems
Lying on back; calves on a chair-seat; block/book or folded towel/blanket under head.  Absolute comfort.  Enough flat and even padding on floor. (Choose this position always unless a yoga teacher has shown you another position as below.)

2.  Lying on Back with Pillow under Knees and Block/Book or folded Towel/Blanket under Head. (Useful alternative to above.)

3. Lying Back Along a Lengthwise Pillow; Block/Book or folded Towel/Blanket under Head.  Useful for sacroiliac problems.  (A qualified teacher will show you how to get comfortable.)

4.   Lying Prone (Shown with Pillow lengthwise under whole trunk. )(Useful for disc problems)

5.  Variety of Yoga Relaxations Positions with Appropriate Props.  Class situation where teacher has shown different positions for different people.
