Are there any such DVDs?

I'm now branching out, but that is still my main. I think it has more stretching than a couple other dvd's I'm starting to use in a rotation.
I developed a lot of balance, gained strength, and flexibility. I also breathe better, and my cortisol levels have plummeted.
eta: there are also yoga dvd's that are aimed at inflexible people. try including that in your search terms. I don't own any of those.
keep in mind with yoga - slow controlled movements require more muscle control than fast movements which rely upon momentum.

When I was just starting out in Yoga I liked that particular video because it allowed me to progress as my flexibility improved without having to go out and buy another video.

and don't demonstrate modifications for people who aren't as flexible.
This was the first yoga DVD I ever bought. And it's still my favorite. Mostly it's a demonstration of basic yoga postures, along with modifications using blocks and straps if needed. The emphasis is on doing the postures correctly. A lot of the reviews complain that it's slow, but that's actually what I like most about it. I've found a lot of beginner yoga DVDs move too fast and don't have enough focus on proper positioning.
