I love practicing yoga at home. Because when I do a nice calming restorative practice I can just roll right into bed, no driving necessary.

The restorative practice needs a bunch of pillows or bolsters, so that you are fully supported in the postures. I did a supported shoulder stand, a nice long supta badha konasana (reclining bound angle) lying on bolsters, then a seated forward bend with a small pillow on my legs since I wasn't quite stretched out enough to rest my head fully on my knees. Then, of course, savasana with a bolster under my knees and a blanket on me.

Slept like a rock until 5:30am when the woodpecker and his friends decided to start tweeting and pecking for breakfast outside my window.
