See if there is a yoga studio in your area that has a class that specializes with MS. Otherwise any yoga is good as long as it's not hot yoga.

Feldenkrais was originally developed for stroke rehab. Chi Gung would be another good choice if available.

I use a cross trainer. It also has the benefit of having the hand things to hold onto to help you keep balance and allow you to workout longer.

Do you care for swimming? The Y I go to has lots of classes in the water, most are geared for arthritis patients. The biggest benefit I get is that I don't heat up.
