In brief: Several

You can learn some exercises at physical therapy aimed at opening up your spinal canal like williams flexion exercises while bike riding, rowing and walking up an inclined treadmill will give good cardio workouts without further narrowing your spinal canal.

In brief: Flatten your back

Physical therapy can instruct a person on tummy (abdominal) strengthening and pelvic tilts.
By flattening the curve of the low back, the space for the nerves (both the main channel and the holes where the nerves go in and out) enlarge. This can be effective in milder stenosis. It does depend on muscle strength and endurance.
