Any advice on introductory routines or videos online. Any tips or pointers? I plan on doing some classes at my gym but I'd like to get familiar with some of the routines first. Also my schedule would make it difficult to attend classes consistently.

I think the increased flexibility will help decrease risk of injury. Plus the stretching of tissue should promote muscle growth.
Bikram yoga is fun. If burning calories is your goal, you will definitely do it there. The p90x program is a good mix of power and flexibility poses. That first half will wear you out, but it's gets easier in the last 45 minutes.
Yoga is a great way to supplement any training regimen.
