Why do my feet hurt when I do yoga?

I'm very new to yoga. It's a something-seems-wrong-here pain instead of a hurts-so-good, feel-the-burn type of pain. It's mostly in the flat part of my foot (rather than the arches), but it sometimes extends up through the ankles to the midpoint of my calves. I have no history of foot trouble. The pain is worst during warrior pose or during poses that involve standing on one foot. The pain ends right after I finish doing the pose, which maybe means that I'm just worrying too much?
Google is mostly bringing up yahoo answers-type posts with robo responses, or sites on how to use yoga to address foot pain in the rest of your life. Thanks!
