Try a yoga class and then try another and another until you find one that's just right. There are several styles of yoga to choose from so it's very likley that you'll find one that suits you. You don't have to be strong or flexible to do yoga. Simply start practising yoga and over time your body will become stronger and more flexible. You'll also feel more confident , focused and better able to deal with stress and strain of daily life. Yoga is the 'science of wellbeing', and as such, all yoga styles create a feeling of ease and relaxation. Each variation or style of yoga may then focus on a different aspect of yoga postures, breathing techniques or mindfulness. Each teacher will also be unique in their approach, personality and possibly creativity depending on where and who they've trained with.
The following is an excerpt from the Guardian's helpful article on the different styles of yoga.
"... to get the most benefit and the most enjoyment, you need to find a yoga style and a teacher that suits you. For example, if you're already doing lots of strength training your best choice is likely to be a yoga style that focuses more on flexibility... Perhaps try yin or hatha yoga. Those who have ...arthritis might want to try Iyengar yoga, or one-to-one sessions with a teacher where you will be able to focus on alignment and your unique needs. If you are drawn to experience the spiritual side, you could try jivamukti. And for those who are relatively healthy and want a challenge, ashtanga vinyasa or vinyasa flow might be a good choice."
