I did yoga on wii fit for a while last year and I noticed that it transfered to my riding. I was more flexible and stronger (especially in my legs) and I felt more balanced and centred. I was a lot more toned as well after a couple weeks doing it.
I liked doing it for balance on wii fit because you had to stay centred on the little wii fit board and I had to really focus on it to keep my centre of gravity.
I would definitley recomend at least going to a couple classes, or if you already have a wii, just get wii fit and use that.
I did it half an hour a day for a couple months and there was a big difference.

can you lose weight doing yoga? or is that palates? is there a difference? maybe I'll go buy a DVD....
For me personally, I need to do heart pumping cardio workouts to lose weight, but yoga is great for toning target areas. Pilates is slightly different but gives the same results in my opinion. The DVD I got was a combination of the two.
