I love child's pose as a beginning. It doesn't feel like Yoga, it just feels like curling up and resting. It always calms me. So I started in child's pose, for a long time. Then I just sort of rolled forward and did a headstand with the wall close by as an option in case I wanted a break. I recalled hearing that headstand was good to do before bed, so I wanted to be up there for a long time to get the full sedative effect.
Came down not planning to do any other yoga but as usual it pulled me along and I had to do just one more pose. I figured wheel wasn't a very good nighttime pose but I did it anyway. Then I still hadn't had enough backbending so I did camel. And then, a nice long badokonasana to quiet things down again. I never did quite cross that distinct border between Thinking Too Much and Relaxation. I got into bed and did my best to pile my pillows into the likeness of a bolster for a restorative heart opener.
That was the hardest pose of all. I alternated between relaxation and discomfort. After that I didn't want any more yoga so I rolled off and tried to sleep but couldn't for the longest time. I suppose next time I'll do that pose during the day or at least try to follow it with something introspective.
On another note, earlier in the day I actually managed to get myself into a handstand against the wall for maybe the 4th time ever!
