Default Yoga for beginners

I want to start doing yoga, but I don't want to sign up for a class (I'm limited on funds right now due to upcoming wedding and move)

I want to increase my flexibility, and am not looking for something fast paced. More relaxing.

I've been looking at online resources, and nothing jumps out at me.

Does anyone know where I could find a good beginners routine that is descriptive in the position, breathing, and the way your body should feel?

I may end up buying am/pm yoga because I hear it's relaxing and slow, but I'm going to wait and see if I can come up with a routine myself based on information I can find online. I did learn how to lift weights on my own using books and the internet

Lost weight in 2010, had a baby and lost it again, had another baby and now I'm back! My mini goal photos from when I first lost weight here:

I absolutely love AM/PM yoga!! When it do PM yoga I sleep without moving all night. It's great I usually don't sleep well but this is worth it.

YouTube has a TON of yoga videos that explain positions. Just search "yoga for beginners" and it will bring you PAGES of videos.

I adore the Yogatic channel on Youtube <3 I wasn't a beginner when I came across it, but I went through some of the beginner videos with my friend, and she liked them.
