$85 for all eight weeks Instructor Alan Erdossy returns to HCA with an 8 week introductory class in the Yang style of T’ai Chi Ch’uan. T’ai Chi is a sequence of precise body movements done slowly and without effort that balance the flow of energy within the body. At once a moving form of meditation, a dynamic system of exercise to improve health, and an introduction to the basics of self defense, T’ai Chi Chu’an has been practiced daily in China by millions for centuries. It requires no special clothes or equipment, keeps you on your feet, takes only a few minutes each day, and can be learned at any age. Regular practitioners of T’ai Chi are rewarded with energy and focus, and they age with vitality and grace. Alan has 45 years of experience teaching at businesses and art, ballet, and exercise studios throughout the Northeast. This Introduction to the first set of the Yang style of T’ai Chi Chu’an will run for an hour, however participants who are repeating the introduction are welcome to stay for another half hour to begin exploring the second set of T’ai Chi.

Finding love can be hard for anyone, but for those with an autism spectrum disorder, the challenges may seem overwhelming. Autism in Love offers a warm and stereotype-shattering look at four people as they pursue and manage romantic relationships. Neurodiversity is an approach to learning and disability that argues diverse neurological conditions can be the result of normal variations in the human genome. It helps to frame learning challenges as differences rather than as deficits. In Focus is a documentary series focusing on relevant social themes and environmental themes. Presented by WonderArts in partnership with the Vermont Learning Support Initiative, this season we are screening three films that highlight neurological differences. Local experts and community leaders facilitate post-film conversations that provide the tools and understanding for how to create positive change in our community through education, outreach, and action.
