Im looking for a handful of stretches to ease lower back "tightness".

I get minor lower back pain pretty regularly, not enough to cause concern, just enough to get me to notice it.
Its even more pathetic in the morning.. Some days are better than others but it always takes me a great deal of effort just to put my socks on due to a complete lack of flexibility and a tight lower back.
Im 27 years old, this seems ridiculous!
Im very athletic and active, not over weight.
So basically im looking for a handful at most of basic stretches or yoga positions that would be most beneficial for my back that I can do before bed, or when I get up, or whenever I have 10 minutes or so.
A yoga dvd or something similar is way too much, it will just sit there.. I just need something to get me started before I can even seriously consider yoga.
Anybody else have similar issues and found that X,Y or Z worked well??
Thanks a lot!
