Question by Ron1: I want to start taking yoga. Is it really good for you? How often do you go and how much does it cost?
Also, is yoga something that you need to be in shape already to start? In other words, do they work you into it, or it will it kick your butt if you’re a little out of shape?
What exactly does it do for you?

Best answer:

Answer by Angela Lansbury
There are beginner classes, certainly. Anyone can do yoga, just ease into it to find your own limits. Its good for flexibility and joint health, if you get into more strenuous workouts you can improve muscle tone and even get an aerobic effect if you really go at it. A good yoga workout WILL kick your butt a little bit, any workout should, that’s how you improve.

Itís very important to take it one step at a time. Try a few beginner classes before you attempt more vigorous classes. Donít move ahead too quickly. Allow your body to adjust to your exercises.
