Stretch Routines/circuits

I'm a toight like a tiger, especially through the lower back/hip area.

Anyone got a good go-to stretch programme for people-that-don't-move-good with limted flexibility?

I've been using routines from Do Yoga With Me dot com... There's a 30 min hip, lower back and hammie class that hits all the "older person who tries to bike and run" bits. You'll most likely need a strap (or an old belt) and a foam block (or could use a folded up pillow/towel or something).

Whatever you do - I'd like to suggest "a little, often", is more effective than "an hour, once a week". However tempting it is to put it off til tomorrow, dont be afraid of just doing the first 5 mins of SC's video before you go to bed.

I've been doing iyengar yoga weekly for 3 years but my real gains are made when I do something more frequently.
