Tai Chi at Suaimhneas School of Tai Chi Chuan

Learn Tai Chi to relax, become more self aware and improve your health.

Welcome to the Suaimhneas School of Tai Chi Chuan

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.

Zoom classes

Zoom classes will begin on 29th March 2021.  See Class info for more details.


Free Introduction

Each term begins with a free introduction class. This is a chance to see a demonstration, hear about our school and experience the movements of Tai Chi Chuan for yourself.

We will tell you about the health benefits, our curriculum and the origins of our school. At the end of every introductory session we have questions and answers followed by refreshments, which allows for an opportunity to meet and socialise with your fellow students and teachers.

You are advised to wear loose comfortable clothing and bring along two pairs of socks or Tai Chi slippers if you have a pair.

Spring Tunings

The T’ai Chi Foundation is offering you a choice of tunings!

In these 27 days we are going to support our ability to express ourselves.
To encourage growth and to have the energy for a vision for our near or far future.
To deal with the world at this given moment with strength through softness
to live up to the challenges in our daily lives. In springtime with the ever-growing light,
we better stay on the positive side and let go of negativity towards self. That in itself can be a challenge.
Look at the videos and try it out. There is a choice of possibilities with clear instructions.
What is fitting for you? You could feel the rewards however you choose to participate.
Read on and feel welcome to make use of our tuning. We appreciate your participation.

Sign up and you will receive a link for a Zoom meeting on day one of the tuning
