I would say to look hard for a beginning yoga class if you can, or failing that maybe you can find a private instructor for just a few sessions? I know that sounds expensive, but when youíre just starting out with yoga itís really helpful to have the guidance of someone who knows their stuff. There are so many little things in the alignment and execution of the poses and the breathing that are difficult or impossible to get from a video. I had some great instructors at the YMCA I used to go to, for the fist few months the instructors were constantly helping me correct things. After a while you start to learn what certain poses should feel like and you can do them on your own in good form.
I donít have a gym membership since I moved, but I learned enough in the 2 years I took classes to practice on my own now. I like Namaste yoga on FitTV, but those workouts can tend to get a little advanced and move quite quickly. Not very good beginner material, IMO.
