As I age, I am noticing that I am less flexible than I was. Partly due to office work, partly due to the fact I don't stretch, but I have noticed it quite a bit this winter. I've heard good things about yoga, but I have some questions and I don't know where to start asking.
I'm a fat guy that needs to stretch, but I don't really want to join just any class. I'm not comfortable sitting in a class of experienced yoga-ers while I strain and grunt and snap and whatever the hell I'm afraid this old husk may do. Anyone in the Twin Cities area know any good yoga instructors that specialize in stiff, crabby guys? Are there any other stiff, crabby guys that would like to take over a class should one be around? What kind of yoga (I have an idea that there are different types, like martial arts, out there) should I be looking for?
I know that this may be a bit too much information for some and I apologize, but I'm really in a bind. I don't know anything about it, I don't know anybody who does and I'm not comfortable just walking into a studio without at least some background. Yoga instructors strike me as a rather personal choice, not unlike a therapist or bike shop and I don't want to walk all over hell and gone trying to find one. At least not without some clue.
Anyway, thanks for letting me share...
