Yoga for clumsy but active person with chronic pain
September 27, 2013 8:32 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for a beginning yoga course (web-based or dvd) for myself. I have chronic pain due to a back injury, and I want to improve my flexibility and balance. I don't know anything about yoga. Please help!

in the archives has some suggestions that look like they could apply to my situation. I don't know enough to evaluate them, or know whether any would work for me. And I thought there might have been new ones out there since 2009.
I do one hour of cardio every other day as a way to lessen my pain. I had hoped to get the go-ahead to resume strength training this month after a seven year break. Instead, my doctors said to do yoga.
I found ExRx.net
in the archives. It is a very useful reference but it doesn't cover yoga. Is there a resource like that for yoga?
I know that it would probably be better to take a class but I am not in the position to do so right now.
