I am not qualified to answer this question, as I am not a doctor. I suggest speaking to a cardiologist who does yoga or knows about yoga and who can advise you from personal experience. Some yoga poses will push the heart beat up, many will lower the heart beat, particularly when focussing on slowing down breathing. Yoga is not typical exercise so might still be a form of movement you could do - be sure to find a gentle style of hatha yoga as some styles are quite vigorous (bikram, ashtanga, vinyasa). When you do start yoga, ensure to tell your teacher of all the above so he/she can work with you and with a more detailed recommendation from your doctor.
Failing this, you might look into meditation, which can give benefit you immensely as well.
