Yoga program for beginners

I'm interested in starting a yoga practice, I've fallen off the fitness wagon (Cathe, KCM, etc.). I think this might be a good time to try yoga since I'm already NOT doing those other workouts. Ultimate Yoga sounds really good but the workouts are pretty long. Suggestions regarding a yoga program, including UY are welcome. TY in advance. Oh and I have Bellyfit dvd's I think I might use to segue into yoga. TY again.

My all time favorite yoga DVD is Erich Schiffmann's Backyard Beginner, but it is 70 minutes long, so I'm not sure that helps you.

I really enjoy Udaya streaming videos. You can choose the length, level, and instructor. There are many to choose from and they give excellent cuing. Good luck finding the right program for you!

A nice start for a beginner, as a "program", would be Rodney Yee's AM Yoga For Your Week. You could do one of the five routines each day for several weeks. Then, I'd move on to Blissology - they have some advanced poses, but there is always a modifier, and you can choose between the full routine each day (about 40-55 min) and the quickie (about 25-40 min).

Yep, this is a great recommendation.

Thank you so much. I'll get the Rodney Yee AM Yoga for your Week first, then I can add the other suggestions once I've developed some habit energy. Its probably better if I limit my choices. I appreciate the time taken to help, thank you to all who responded.

I would focus on something with a lot of form cues. Maybe start with the older Yoga Zones they have beginner workouts and then advance to their harder ones. Suzanne Deason has a workout where 3 different levels are shown. I also like the yoga workouts from Body Wisdom - Yoga for Inflexible People is one - lots of workouts, arranged by level, and inexpensive. That one shows lots of modifications.

There are a ton of yoga workouts here. I've done a few beginner ones. They're free.
