Me, I would look into a class at a studio or gym which has a great teacher. If you are beginning, for me, it mattered less what kind of yoga I began with than who was teaching. A teacher can make or break a class.

I practice a hot power yoga almost everyday. It's the most intense yoga I've ever practiced.
Unlike ST or cardio, you don't need a day to recuperate in between sessions.

Your plan of alternating cardio, ST, and yoga sounds great. Find a teacher and studio you like and have fun!

Probably if you are not familiar with yoga poses and breathing techniques, it would be wise to attend a class with a certified Yoga instructor, who could help you design a sequence for your needs. There are several yoga styles indeed but the poses are basically the same, Hatha is the basis, but as I said the guidance of an instructor is required to benefit from the practice without harming yourself, breathing is very important while doing the poses too. Check in your area, talk to the instructor, wish you the best. Here you can get information in the Yoga Forum. Your plan sounds good strength, yoga, cardio and repeat. Do you know that in Yoga you are doing some weight training when you move from pose to pose moving your body?

I live south of Houston, recently I found this studio in Houston and they offer Yoga The Basics, maybe where you live you can find something similar:

I want to start a workout program and I want to do yoga and weight training. Eventually I figure I can do weight training on Monday and yoga on Wednesday, weight training on Friday and Yoga on Sunday and so on, doing harder more strenuous yoga to build muscle. For the moment though, because I'm a beginner in both, I figure I will do one day weight training, the next day yoga, and the next day cardio and repeat. Because of this I need to do light yoga that won't stress out the muscles I just worked out the day before. There seem to be so many types of yoga. Is there a specific one I can do that won't be too stressful? Thanks in advance :).
