Virtual Programs at Myerberg

The Maryland Association of Parkinson Support, Inc. (MAPS) and the Myerberg Center have some very exciting news to share!

Myerberg and MAPS have teamed up to offer the Parkinson’s community a special MAPS Virtual Subscription. The new subscription plan will include a complimentary 1-year Myerberg Membership and access to the following virtual programs. This subscription is sponsored by MAPS, which means there is no cost for Parkinson’s participants.

Classes Included in the MAPS Subscription:

  • Rock Steady Boxing – Mondays and Wednesdays 1:15 to 2:15 p.m.
  • Senior Strong – Mondays 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. and Fridays 10:00 to 10:30 a.m.
  • Better Balance – Thursdays 10:45 to 11:30 a.m.
  • Broadway Fridays with Ellen Katz TBA
  • Tech Lunch & Learn Q&A – First Fridays 12:30 to 1:30pm

To get started, please email markese@myerberg.org. If you are currently registered for the Rock Steady Boxing class, you must contact markese@myerberg.org in order for your subscription to continue.

Finally, it is a policy of MAPS to require minimum participation levels for its funded programs. It is for this reason that MAPS has made the difficult decision to temporarily sunset the Parkinson’s Dance program. We hope to revisit this program once we can safely return to in-person programs. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you at many of these exciting programs!

Exercise (temporarily canceled due to COVID 19)

Exercise is an extremely important component in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.  Regular exercise can help maintain balance and mobility, improve mood, and help daily functioning.  Any type of exercise provides benefit and it is important that people with Parkinson’s disease engage in exercise that they find enjoyable.  Community exercise programs for those with PD are not only good exercise, but are a great way to become engaged, meet others, and have fun. MAPS is currently working to develop more exercise programs in the community.
