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.

Next indoor classes will start in Cara Hall on the 17th January 2022.

Registration is open.

Students must be vaccinated and show proof of vaccination to join class.

See Class info for more details.

19 December 2021
through 14 January 2022
A winter at-home training for 27 days
 Gather your energy.
It is the season of winter,
a special time for calling extra attention
to stay healthy or restore your health.
The Tai Chi Foundation is pleased to invite students, teachers,
and newcomers to participate in a qigong tuning.
No experience is necessary.
In Chinese philosophy yang and yin qi, aspects of ourselves,
are symbolized as twin children working a water wheel
and building up our reserves.
They are filled with qi and life and joyful energy.
We will learn some gentle qigong exercises that will guide the way
to building our reserves of qi which we can store in our kidneys
and eventually in our bones. 
In 10 to 21 minutes per day, we will tune into our inner nature.
For more information on the Water element, visit
For the indications (instructions):
We are in the final stage of our annual fund campaign.
Please help us meet our goal with a donation to the Tai Chi Foundation.
Any amount is appreciated.
