Ahhh... my guess is it was just the sheer physical exertion...

since your body was totally unused to that, you really gave it something new to deal with. I'd wait till you're feeling better, then try the routine again, but maybe go at 1/2 the pace or just do 1/2 the routine. Any type of physical exertion can rev up your GI tract just like it revs up your muscles - I think you just threw your body a curve it wasn't expecting!

You might also try working in daily walks, and alternating that with the yoga. Yoga can be a really intense workout even when it doesn't seem that trying. I'd just slow down, go gradually with things, and I think you'll end up seeing a lot of improvements from it and no more problems.

And good for you for getting back into exercise after 10 years. That is fabulous!
