Ok. I've never tried it. I'm not going to take a class. It would have to be a video I can do at home for beginners. But I really need something that will help me with my flexibility (I am nowhere near being able to touch my toes) and to relax. Relaxing is key. And do I need to get one of those mats or can I just do it on my floor?

Anyone have any suggestions?

Yoga is all about proper form and proper breathing. If you aren't going to take a class, make sure you research videos and find one that emphasizes form and breathing. You will need a mat, it makes it easier to gauge how far apart your feet/hands are, as well as, giving you traction.

I would take a class. I have Pilates DVDs, but really didn't want to start until I knew I was doing the moves and holding my body correctly. Now that I have taken a class, I feel comfortable doing it on my own. Also, like BauersMom said, breathing is also a big part of it.

Me too! My MIL really wants me to do Pilates but I like Yoga more. Pilates was hard for me to do when I had a flare up of AS, where I could easily do the yoga as I could breath thru the movement and reduce the inflammation.
