In brief: Instruct first
For the beginner it is helpful to start with an instructor. They are trained to spot and correct problems with your form. Once you become more aware of your body and position and can feel the right way to do the poses then supplementing or replacing with a dvd will provide continued benefit.
I would still do occasional classes to keep up to date.
