Several: Weight bearing exercise will increase your bone mass. Since you have stenosis exercises with you sitting or flexed would be comfortable like a bike or on a treadmill with an incline. Yoga and pilates for core stabilization as well.

Core stabilization: Best to see a physical therapist to get good instructions on core stabilzation exercises.
