It's hard to say... There are many different 'styles' of yoga tapes out there. power, strenght, stretching, etc. The good thing is that they are pretty cheap, so try a few out. Oh, you can also check a video store near you and rent a few to try out.

I have a couple from the 'yoga fusion' series that I like. The instructors are also pretty cute and that makes working out in front of the tube a little easier. :)

That's not the way to learn yoga; too many drawbacks to even mention here, but I'll list a few:

1. Trust me, you'll be doing all the poses wrong, and need an instructor to help you constantly improve them.

2. The poses will not necessarily be the ones you need.

3. You evolve but the video never does.

4. They're made for the masses and to make money.

View yoga from a lifetime-of-improvement persective, not how to fill some winter hours. Take a course with an instructor, then practice what you learn at home.
