Definitely give it a try. There are people who find it boring or not very fun, so you'll want to see if it's an exercise you like. I have moods, some days I love it, some days I find it a great waste of my time.

What I do love is to use yoga as a warm up for my workouts in the morning. I wake up kind of stiff (sometimes a little sore) and yoga is a great way to warm up my muscles prior to cardio. My yoga 'session' is pretty short, usually do a routine of the upward facing dog, move to downward facing dog, then a couple of the warrior poses. The 'dog' poses warm the arms, shoulders, back, and chest and the warrior poses get my quads and legs warmed. (oh, by the way, don't be intimated by the pose names, you'll start to pick up on them as you get into it.)

I say give it a try, you might just love it. And even if you don't, I'd still recommend it since it does help with flexibility, control, balance, and strength.
