I have been looking for yoga classes to try and the cost is about $15.00 per class. That I can find.
I have tried excercise videos. It is not for me. I find myself sitting down laughing at them.
Ithink yoga would be neat to try but, frankly I am trying to find any time of excercise classes. Perferrably where I do nto have to join a gym.

Get a yoga book and start the poses at home. If you really want to do it, you will.
Not to mention simply going for walks. That's the best exercise you can get...fresh air and moving your body.

Have you tried community centers, community colleges, cooperatives, local parks & recreation? Most towns have a free yoga class hiding somewhere!

Yeah getting a book is a great idea. I used one for a while and progressed really quickly. I was just looking for the title, and I can't remember it exactly, but it's something like "Yoga in 21 days" and everyday you learn beginnners moves and progress throughout the days. It's great and I couldn't believe how fast my flexibility increased. Any book like that gives you daily moves is probably useful.
Also taking one class to start off, and maybe periodically can be a good investment so you can be sure you're doing the moves correctly, and understand the flow of yoga better.

there are some excellent yoga videos too, or you can just go to the websites.

have you tried yoga videos? I can't find anything funny about them myself ;)
My all time fav is still Ali Mcgraw's dvd-it's beautiful and an effective practice. Try that and THEN see if you don't like dvd's....
I know you mentioned you don't want to join a gym but perhaps you can find a place that offers a free trial so you can go in and try the classes. We (fitness centers) are heading into our slow time and you should be able to find some good deals on membership and fress trial passes. Most fitness centers these days offer summer memberships that start in June so watch for those.

Usually yoga centers have discount cards if you buy classes in bulk. Like you can buy a 10-class card for $100, good for 3 months or so. Or you can pay a flat fee for the month and go to as many classes as you like. At my studio, the monthly flat fee is $80. That's a HUGE bargain, esp. if you go more than once a week.
I would definitley suggest you practice with a good teacher for a few weeks to make sure you're aligning and breathing properly, rather than just get a video.

Great ideas all around...my yoga center does a $30 a month flat fee...keep looking!
