Water: It depends on how severe the MG
How about exercises in shallow water? Perhaps with a flotation device and supervision if necessary. If you have trouble breathing , water pressure surrounding your chest may be an issue as can the temperature. A physical therapist can help with various exercises both in and out of water.
