I'm getting older and creakier. Please recommend a good book or DVD or gentle program to help me limber up and not be so stiff, achy and tight.

I'm almost 50! If I bend down to touch the floor, I can reach to the middle of my shins and that's it. Yeah, that's pathetic. My low back always aches, I'm stiff and tight all over and losing any elasticity and limber-ness I ever had. I don't recommend getting older. Avoid it.
I need a gentle stretching or yoga book or DVD, but dudes and dudettes---please do not recommend any stuff that requires me to twist into a pretzel nor any high impact, heavy workout stuff. Think of me as old and tired and creaky (although I am not overweight). I prefer to work exercise/stretch at home.
I have access to a Swiss ball and a foam roller if they will help.
Kind regards to you all. . . .
