Learn alternate nostril breathing first.  It calms the nervous system so you can apply proper
breathing when you do yoga.

I had a very stressed B friend who exercised Pilates and found it very balancing.

I take Dragon Herbs' Super Adaptogen regularly which improves my mood a lot, as if it makes my worries vanish.

you could give tai chi a go? Alternate nostril breathing is also very calming, as noted above. Or try listening to a relaxation/visualisation/guided meditation cd? All of these things have worked for me at various times. Good luck!

Even though I'm a retired yoga instructor, I find that at this point in my life, Tai Chi and/or QiGong are more suitable for calming, centering and harmonizing my nervous system now.  I still like to meditate and do a few yoga stretches every day, but the bulk of my practice is not yoga asanas.

You could start with a walk, to clear out excess nervous energy.

Also, the herb Holy Basil (Tulsi) is helpful to lower cortisol.

I know that one of my daughters (type O) cannot STAND doing yoga. It just bores and frustrates her, rather than calming her. My other daughter (also an O) loves yoga and does very well with it.

You might be similar in temperament to my younger daughter and be "too edgy for yoga" and prefer an exercise that keeps you MOVING! She likes running, dancing, aerobics, but nothing quiet and gentle like yoga. She can curl up on the couch no problem, but when she's moving, she wants to MOVE.

I think the walk idea might help most. when I am agitated a brisk walk away from people dose me wonders for my state of mind. it would not have to be a long walk, even just around the equivalent of a block is usualy enouph to bring my tension down to where I can go into the prolonged streaches I need to keep my hips working.


nothing to do? who has that!?

When I am edgy going straight into the asanas (exercise/poses section) helps me destress quicker. Towards the end i can do breathing or meditation or chi kung easier. Also don't eat or drink, other than water,  for 90 minutes before you start.

It's easier to learn yoga if you join a beginners class at a yoga school.

This can be very true. Can you find out your Genotype? That will also help.
I'm an Explorer and the thing about A's is "yoga, bla bla" but I hate guided imagery of almost any sort....

however, this is quite intriguing to take a look at : https://holyyoga.net/about/

look into different types of yoga, many cd or dvd maybe be hatha yoga or different postures.  I like yoga mudra, which are easy breathing exercises where focus is on different body parts, and breath is held - working with energy/qi/prana/chi, to increase function and strength of digestive organs and neuro-endocrine system.
as mentioned above, alternate nostril breathing is well worth doing. walking in nature good.
