I took power yoga at Rancho Santiago Jr. College in Orange. It was great, I really enjoyed it and it was super cheap! Only around $30 for the entire semester. Personally, I am having so much fun and am really enjoying THE FIRM. The DVD's incorporate yoga, pilates, body wight resitance, weight training and cardio. They are fast paced, fun, and I am in the best shape of my life. I was taking workout classes 5 days a week, with little results. Now, I just do these workouts, from the comfort of my home. I saw results almost immediately. I got a 500 cal workout at ULTA for $15, then found a DVD with an 8lb ball at TJMAXX for $8, also a DVD with 3 cardio wkouts for $5, and a DVD at Target with 4 whouts for $7. Might want to check it out, good luck!
The community college - or Cal State, or University of Ca... all great options. I know that at University of California, Riverside - the have a complete program to get a degree in Yoga. That will probably be your cheapest option.
Also, try the local community classes in your area.
I think, as well, you can go on a website like yogajournal.com and search for local studios.
Anywhere commercially that you go should be friendly, answer questions, and give you an option to try out their facilities - prior to selling you on a big package or program. It is often a very personal choice - and you'll have to do your research.
Ali McGraw has a wonderful (OLD) video (circa 1993) - Yoga, Mind and Body - that is a fabulous, gentle introduction to it. You could do it in your living room. It might even be on YouTube - or on Itunes. My copy is an actual VHS tape (gasp...)
