You can try power yoga.

It will increase your flexibility, and it will help you build up your muscles because you do a lot of exercises that involve lifting your own body weight, such as push-ups.

Yoga is one way. High reps with low weights is a way to gain muscle with out bulking up. Flexibility, just do stretches, it is just as important as cardio and strength exercises.
