I do a lot of yoga and pilates because my joints are bad and my stomach is my biggest problem area. I switch between the two depending on how I feel that day. Pilates is very hard to do when you are first starting out. Definitely find a program that shows you modifications for beginners. I have a few dvd's with Ana Caban and I really like them. I still can't do the more difficult positions though, and it's been months, but you will definitely feel the workout the next day. Another thing you might look into is Tai Chi, I haven't done any of that personally but it's slow focused exercises like yoga and Pilates. There's also a lot of different types of yoga, I do kundalini yoga because it's a lot more relaxed and you don't have to be super flexible to do it.
