What a day, great weather, lots of practice and good craic!

On Saturday, we focused on Chi Kung, its central place within our Tai Chi Chuan, and how we can maximize the benefits we reap from its practice.

As is often the case, while classes are about learning and development of form, workshops focus almost entirely on principles. We pick one principle and focus on it through a given physical practice.

Through this training method we don’t so much broaden our knowledge, rather we deepen it. That might seem like splitting hairs but there’s an important difference. By broadening our knowledge, we learn more things, by deepening our knowledge we make the things we know work better.

I would like to congratulate those who came to their first workshop last weekend. It’s not easy stepping into a room full of unfamiliar faces, regardless of where you go from here, you’re pushing your boundaries and growing.

Well done.

For all who were there, keep up your practice and remember the challenge you were given. If you achieve it, you’ll feel the difference.

I guarantee it.

Until next time.

Well done to all at Masters Of Calm for organising a great two days at the Moynalty Yoga Festival last weekend. Even the weather was organised well, and we don't get that everyday!

We had 2 Tai Chi sessions this year, one on Saturday and another on the Sunday. Both we well attended by yoga enthusiasts with little or no Tai Chi experience.

I love it when we get that look, 'huh, that's interesting'.

I even had one come up to me after the session and say, 'I've done Tai Chi before, but we never trained like that!'.

Fantastic.

Well done to all for coming along and moving out of your comfort zone, even for just a brief hour.

For those interested in exploring more, look us up, we have teachers all over Dublin.
