Legs on a cushion for fibromyalgia is my simplest, quickest way to get some restorative yoga in and it can be done in bed.
I am not kidding.
When I am not pregnant, and therefore allowed to lie on my back for prolonged periods of time, I do this pose right before I go to sleep.
Restorative yoga is a type of yoga that is passive, designed to calm the central nervous system and induce rest and relaxation. It is incredibly accessible, which is why I love it so much.
