Insulation under floor for basement garage

I have a garage that goes into the basement. The basement has no insulation whatsoever. There is a cinder block wall separating the garage from the rest of the basement and the basement is heated where the garage is not. Problem is the 2 bedrooms over the basement are considerably colder. I am planning on adding insulation in the garage ceiling but the heating ducts extend to the bottom of the joists so i'm guessing i'll need to put the insulation to either side of the ducts and not underneath the duct. Is there a way of insulating the heating ducts (approx. 6" metal pipes) to preserve the heat?

Strange.... I'm having a hard time picturing your setup there. Is it possible to post a picture or two for us ?

Are those bedrooms over the garage portion of the basement or over the unheated basement portion?
