I'm also new to yoga and found this one which is manageable for a starter and it is very relaxing too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAm5j0vvnJ0

Wow, thanks for that clip, it was really inspirational!
Although I enjoy cardio and strength training and do both regularly, it's yoga that has helped me most. It has helped with mindfulness about my body and what I put into it. It also reduces stress and has helped me overcome the worst of my bingeing tendencies. And finally, of all the physical things I do, yoga makes me feel best!
If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!
Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

This U-tube clip isn't what you asked for ... but it may help you. It's an incredibly inspiring 5-minute video of a guy's progress doing yoga. If you find it hard at first, this may keep you going.

If you have a yoga studio in your area, it's good to take a couple classes with a teacher to help you feel the postures correctly. A lot of them offer free first classes because different individuals need different things.
Shiva Rea's DVDs are beautifully done. I own Yoga Shakti, which gives a mix of different difficulty levels, so you can grow with it.
