Good luck with your class, and don't forget to hydrate. I hear that yoga is one of those things where dehydration can creep up on you (yes, it's the mother in me speaking!)
I would def start with Tai Chi primarily, then. It's very low impact and there's not a whole lot of crazy stretching...just lots of learning how to balance and...well, breathe! lol

And yes, dehydration creeps up about halfway through the class. I keep a water bottle next to my mat Thank you for the reminder though!
