I would be interested in people's thoughts on the best way to get into yoga.

From what little I know it would seem there are many personal benefits of yoga, and therefore many reasons to do it. One of my primary reasons is body flexibility as I get into my 60s and 70s. The relaxation and other benefits would be helpful as well.

My question is should I start with a book, a video, or get into a local class? And which book(s)??  Video(s)??  Type of class??

What other things should I be considering in order for this to be a lasting change in my life?

Thanks for your thoughts.

It is better to go for a class. Once you learn the technique of breathing,you can read books and watch videos.

The best way, as it is said earlier
Get a Mentor,
Learn
Practice
And then Go ahead with other means to upgrade the level.

Thanks for the replies - very helpful.

In follow up, are all classes pretty much the same or are there certain things I should consider when selecting a class as a beginner. For instance the fitness center I go to has several classes a week that meet, but then there are also studios in my area that specialize in nothing but yoga.

Perhaps I'm over complicating this..........

Here is my view

1) Identify Bad habits and avoid it.

2) Wake up early in the morning. 5 AM is the idle time

3) Yoga has many branches a) breathing b) physical exercise c) meditation.

4) I suggest always starts with simple physical exercise like stretching and then move on to simple breathing like anlom vilom .

5) If you are comfortable with above go for advanced yoga (better to join classes of Iyengar or Ambika)

6) also try to learn the Shat Kriya. (shuddhi kriya)

Regards

Thanks Jigarastik. I like the stepwise approach and advancing to something more as desired/necessary.
