The class will be instructing Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan and is suitable for beginners wishing to experience what Tai Chi is about.
The class will be taught by Ross Cousens. Ross is one of a number of qualified Master Ding Academy instructors teaching Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung in Ireland. He has been training under Master Ding since 1997 and has been assisting Master Ding with classes, seminars and retreats across Europe since 2001.
Ross's teaching aims to integrate the life affirming principles found within the ancient Chinese practices of Tai Chi and Chi Kung, with the hectic lifestyles that we all lead today.
This fusion of the ancient and modern worlds is attained through the mindful practice of Tai Chi and Chi Kung on a regular basis. This inner discipline results in the much sought after Strong Body and Still Mind, as often described by Tai Chi texts.
Class structure includes solo and partner work where students are encouraged to work together to mutual benefit. This results in an informal, fun environment where every person has an opportunity to learn from everyone else.
For those interested in the martial aspects of the art, introduction to the practicalities of postures and movements are included. Once basic skills are attained, Tai Chi Chuan as a fighting art can be explored.
