Hi Lynx - yoga will very definitely help with toning and increasing muscle density as well as assisting with weight loss (especially if it is one of the more dynamic styles that you chose). There are literally hundreds of different styles and approaches - each with a different focus and some are more physical than others so I suggest you try a few styles before you develop a home routine - for which you can also use a book or DVD. The great thing about yoga is that you don't need any equipment other than yourself (and maybe a mat) and it works the body and mind, reduces stress, increases awareness and confidence, and can even aid in more holistic life elements. So you may start for one reason and develop many more to continue practising...
