Fred: Congrats on the decision to start doing yoga. Once you find a good book, Practice yoga with patience. Pushing yourself more than your body can handle will amount to non violence. Maintain a 'Yoga Diary or Journal' Right from day 1. Record all the asanas/pranayama etc.,. Recording how you feel before, during and after the yoga session too will be immensely helpful to you in your yoga practice. God Bless :-)
