Like sleeping....

Seriously, that three postures can't be too relaxing, at least for me.

Yes, getting good sleep requires total relaxation.

[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

-- Samadhirāja Sūtra

There is actually great similarity between what is needed to properly do thogyal and to have a good sleep. More similarity than most people probably realize.
