Hi Rip - firstly congratulations on your progress and disciplined approach, your story is an inspiration! I agree that yoga is the way for you to go. It might be good for you to try a few styles and teachers (everyone is a beginner anyway and most people have enough to focus on on their own mat). These days most bookstores will have a range of good books on the subject. I would recommend two in particular - firstly BKS Iyengar's "Light on Yoga" is like a bible of postures and has a great deal of detail as well as pictures. Also, look for Beryl Binder Birch's "Power Yoga" which is the official yoga programme of the New York Road Runners Club and it deals quite extensively with things like typical running injuries. Good luck!
All the best
