Too Old/Out of Shape for Yoga?

I really, really want to do yoga.  Years ago I had a video and it was a gentle introduction, and I was so happy doing it, feeling stronger and more flexible over time, but the teacher’s very strong Australian accent bothered me so much I stopped.  Tried 3 times to take classes – ended up frustrated, injured, discouraged.  I’m a bit :) overweight, stiff, bad neck, lower back, knees and one elbow.  Is there hope for me?
