I have recently started going to AquaFit. I go at least twice a week and sometimes 3 times, for 45 minutes each session. If I find there's a move that I can't do, I just jog in place in the water and keep my arms moving, so I'm still staying active. I find it a great workout. I definitely feel it in my muscles the next day, but often, it's a good ache. I have had a couple of flares after doing it, but I think it's also because I was extra active overall on those days.
We also have a Nintendo Wii and I do play with that. I find even just bowling a couple of games is a good workout. I also try to do gentle stretches throughout the day to keep pain and stiffness away.
Hope that helps. Good luck with whatever you try.
