I don't do yoga. After reading an article about the dangers of HOT yoga, I would never go there! Paralysis etc. can result.
Give me the treadmill anyday!

I got a book on yoga and went through it step by step. I do it at home alone with a book and favorite music in the background. DVDs are great if you need or want them, but are not necessary.

Shiva Rea has a number of good titles out and I second Rodney Yee, who has some more advanced DVDs available. The production values are dated and cheesy, but Bryan Kest is good. I agree with exploring the library's collection. It keeps my routines varied and if there is something I really like, I'll buy it.
Rodney Yee is good. He has several DVDs out. As was already suggested, Amazon or another site might have helpful reviews. Also, your local library can be a great resource. They may have some yoga videos you can try.

You might want to try going on amazon.com or something similar and searching for Yoga DVDs and reading reviews. That always helps me with picking out an exercise DVD.
I love doing yoga in a class setting, especially hot yoga, but the hot yoga studio I attend raised their prices. I just can't shell out $130/month to do yoga. I have looked into other places, but the prices are all about the same in my area. Does anyone have any suggestions for videos or DVD's that I can do at home? I am not new to yoga, so I don't need a beginner's routine. Restorative or more intense yoga is good. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Be better than you were yesterday.
