I like yoga. A few friends of mine are dedicated students but I wouldn’t dare call myself that. It’s good for the mind, body and soul but I’m still very much a beginner. Speaking of which I highly recommend Element: Hatha & Flow Yoga For Beginners by Tamal Dodge, if you want to get into the practice. Admittedly you’ll need to do the work out a few times before getting in sync with all his instructions but I’ve found that the lessons are equally introductory and challenging. You might have trouble if this is your very first foray into yoga but eventually you’ll find that there’s nothing better for increasing flexibility. To my pleasant surprise, World Lifestyle’s YouTube channel has a video featuring Dodge explaining how to do Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara). His instructions are almost identical to the DVD’s Hatha lesson. Give it a try and let me know if you like it.
