About the Providers:
We are Suaimhneas School of Tai Chi Chuan (SSTCC) Dublin. We are a not-for-profit school and a branch of the Tai Chi Foundation whose mission is to study and teach Tai Chi to increase health and consciousness and cultivate “strength through softness” in an atmosphere of support, compassion, and wisdom. We teach the Yang Style short form as modified by Professor Cheng Man Ching.
What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese exercise that promotes good health by increasing the energy which circulates through the body. It gently strengthens each muscle, joint and organ. Tai Chi movements, teach the principles leading to health and relaxation in the body, balance in the emotions and quietness and clarity in the mind.
The Chinese say that whoever practices Tai Chi twice a day over a period of time, will gain the pliability of a child, the strength of a lumberjack, and the peace of mind of a sage.
Tai Chi translates as “Supreme Ultimate”. Through Tai Chi, we learn a pattern of relaxation which releases the tensions that occur in our daily lives. Its gentle flowing movements are designed to re-establish the normal circulation of energy in the body. The more flowing the movement, the more directly the circulation of energy works to rebuild health.
Tai Chi as a meditation in motion promotes even respiration, balance and relaxation leading to feelings of being grounded, centred, relaxed, calm and at ease. The movements are slow, continuous, and flowing. All it takes, is good teaching and perseverance on your behalf.
