My ideal resource would be some sort of book or DVD akin to "Gentle Stretching for Old Fat People". Any recommendations?

In my mid-thirties, a bit overweight, and just feeling like my body is starting to crap out a bit on me - lack of flexibility and lots of nagging aches and pains that feel like they are showing up with aging and also exacerbated by the fact that I don't do any sort of stretching. Back in the day I went to a great stretch class at my gym and I didn't have any aches for a couple of years. I'd like to find a book or DVD to guide me in something similar that I can do at home
. I guess yoga-ish things might also be useful, but I've never done any yoga in my life before, and have the impression that at least initially one should go to a class. Thoughts?
(have seen this thread
, but thought given the expanded userbase now I might get some more insight)
