Restorative yoga has been the foundation of my practice for many years. It gives me time to consider techniques I might teach in a vigorous class or the option to rest before a full schedule of classes. I find that a basic routine that involves some standing first sets my body in motion to accept other postures better if the standing warm ups are long enough and in multiple sets. Lets discuss different types of restorative practices and favorite warm ups before the asana practice.

Restorative Yoga is great for teachers of all styles because it allows you to charge your batteries between teaching session. It's also good in combination with your own personal brand of meditation. I also love Yin Yoga for similar reasons.

1 hour of yoga sleep is as restorative as 3 hour sleep.

Yoga Sleep is nidra. The practice of nidra is restorative, but where did you Learn that one hour of nidra is equal to three hours of sleep? I am curious to know the source of your information. I have practiced nidra many times and for as long as an eight hour session. If anyone has any hard data, it would be good for us to share. My studies have been based on my own personal practice. I do believe that nidra is very restful, but I'm not sure it would be a substitute for real sleep over the course of days.
