I LOVE "Yoga for Dummies - Beginner" it shows variations for whatever level you are presently working on. When I started using the dvd I was not flexible at all and used the variations, but I quickly improved (even at 57!!!) and am now pretty flexible. I first found the DVD at my local library - so if your library carries DVD's I recommend you check it out as they MAY have it for you to try. I loved the DVD so much that I asked for it as an anniversary gift!!! It is still my "go to yoga dvd.

Peggy Cappy's "yoga for the rest of us" dvd's are a great way to start! http://store.peggycappy.net/video205.html Don't underestimate the "chair" series where poses are done sitting in a chair -- they look easy, and they are, but they are very effective. Best wishes to you on your journey.
I've been looking into beginner yoga dvds, and I'm hoping to get some recommendations. I'm extremely inflexible and I've had problems with certain yoga dvds, as I can't make the pose and no information is given on a safe alternative. I'm also looking for a yoga dvd that doesn't move too fast from pose to pose, one that does not have me holding a lot of my own weight for long periods of time.
So far the only great dvd that has helped me is Gaiam's Yoga for Weight Loss, but I also like a couple Yin Yoga dvds for deep relaxation. I'm really trying to work on my flexibility, first and foremost. I'm also looking to avoid the purchase of too many props - I have two yoga blocks and a strap, but that's about it. One Gaiam dvd wants me to use a wall, but that's not really possible. Another uses a chair, but the chairs I have don't work quite right.
