Opinion on Yoga and/or Pilates

With our little guy's health problems I haven't been training BJJ as often as I'd like. I'm noticing I'm losing some core strength and flexibility and would like to get your recommendation of some power Yoga or Pilate videos you all have experience with and would recommend. I'm fairly new to this type of stuff so any related feedback is appreciated.

Thanks all

If you asked my "powerlifter" weight training coach he would say,"It shouldn't be done by men but if you feel it's necessary make sure to do it in a very dark room with the door loked and miles away from anything living." This from the guy who says "you don't need to stretch. It just makes you more flexible..."

But for real I am on a yoga for stretching program since tearing my calf and soliel muscles. I use it as part of my warm up and cool down routine along with my body weight exercises like push ups, crunches, body weight squats, etc.

I had a guy at work recommend the new Wii Active game. Is that something anyone has found useful or is it more to get the 'grossly out of shape' into 'woefully out of shape' status?

lol my doctor recommended this when I hurt my leg. I haven't tried it. I would like to try it just to keep from being bored while doing low activity workouts like yoga.

Yeah. I was in Seattle for a month or so on business so I joined a friend at a Tai Chi place she attends. I made it through two classes before I stopped going. Low activity work outs for me typically involve cleaning my house. That is mentally refreshing and...productive
