Really liked the Hip mobility ideas (@3:50+) since running is so "Linear". To modify for folks with diminished ability to bend all the way forward, she could use that basket box to lean on. Also nice to see Proper Form be emphasized on the Hamstring stretches (@4:40+) by protecting the spine w/holding the chest up and bending at the hips rather than the back. Liked that she used an object to prop her foot on that was below waist height. The foot on wall stretch for calves are easier and great if your ankle mobility allows it. As for the usual calf stretch, definitely focus on keeping the heel pressure down --and feel a bit more stretch if you turn your forefoot slightly inward.
