    I'd like to get in to it (lots of guys at jits practice it), are youtube videos a good place to start? I'm not sure if they'd be good for ensuring good form though, maybe you guys can offer some advice?

    Best advice:




    Find a list of all the yoga providers in the area.

    Find the cost.

    Find out which type they employ, as there are many different types of yoga, and see if that coincides with your goal.



    Learning to do yoga is like learning anything else that involves fitness. You can learn it from a video but your form will most likely be incorrect and you will have no outside observer to tell you otherwise. (kettlebells is a fine example of that) In my opinion, unless you already have yoga in your muscle memory, it will be better to drop-in.

    Bonus: There's plenty of talent present.

    I agree about the videos. Elliott Hulse once said he doesn't do too many technique videos because people would end up hurting themselves more than anything else and I agree with that.

    My boy has a really great morning yoga video out. I do it on my own but i've been doing Vinyasa for almost 6 years now.

    Go to a class, a REAL one (not some yoga to the people type b.s.) and it'll be worth it.
