Hello Monterey MS, I want to share a way for you to get a free Zoom exercise class to help you, myself, and graduate and undergraduate students at CSU Northridge.
In this class you receive information and demonstrations on how to perform exercises in your own home. This will be a guided lesson plan set up by the students with your goals and needs in mind.
This is a free resource that CSU Northridge is offering. You will be paired up with graduate and undergrad students studying Kinesiology. All you need is access to Zoom. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also be more than happy to answer questions or concerns for you.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.
There’s no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.
