We are pleased to bring together a collection of group exercise service offerings around Tāmaki Makaurau,  The list includes land and water based exercise for varied abilities in many areas across Auckland.

From May to the end of June 2022, MS Auckland is sponsoring selected classes for people living in Auckland who have MS. When booking these classes please mention MS exercise trial.  

We hope you are able to take the opportunity to trial some of these classes, and would appreciate hearing any feedback.  We understand many people prefer to participate online for the time being, so just a reminder that we have an extensive library of online exercise classes for various abilities on our website available here.

This list is just the beginning of some of the great classes available, and we will be adding to it as we hear of anymore.  Likewise, if you learn of any other classes suitable, we would love to hear from you, email info@msakl.org.nz
