Namaskar aliu88,

You may want to consider finding a competent Yoga teacher. Then, take a few Yoga classes to familiarize yourself with the practice. Learning from a skilled Yoga teacher will establish a strong foundation in your own home Yoga practice.

There are a number of good Yoga books and quality Yoga videos to develop a solid foundation.

The first book I would personally recommend is:

The Heart of YogaDeveloping a Personal Practice

By T.K.V. Desikachar

T.K.V. Desikachar trained many of today's modern Yoga masters and this one book will help anyone develop their own routine.

Videos: Yoga Alignment by John Friend comes in NTC and PAL versions.

This video is good for precise Iyengar style alignment, has a small hand book, and his cueing skills are extra ordinary.

A good Yoga quality mat will also help. As far as other Yoga props - Get what you need when there is a real need for it.

It is nice to have every Yoga prop, if you are going to use them all, but it is best to get Yoga props, when you know you have a specific need.
