Hi Everyone,



I hope this email finds you well and that you enjoyed a wonderful holiday season. As we step into the new year, I'm pleased to announce the reopening of our Tai Chi classes from January 3rd.

For those who have been part of our Tai Chi community, we extend a warm welcome back to the classes. Our growth in Tai Chi is a group endeavour and our work as a group has always been an essential part of our shared journey. I’m looking forward to continue growing and learning together in the coming months.

If you've taken a break from Tai Chi and are contemplating returning, I encourage you to rejoin us on this path, there’s no better time than right now. Tai Chi isn’t just an exercise; it's a journey toward balance, both physically and mentally. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or a beginner, there's always room for growth and discovery.

Classes will resume on January 3rd in Dundrum and move forwards from there. If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to reach out to me directly. Let's make 2024 a year of renewed energy, focus, and progress.

Looking forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming new ones as we embark on another year of Tai Chi together.



Best regards,

Ross

A great week training with a great group of people.

A special shout out to our youngest attendee, all of 10yrs old, (11 very soon..). Well done young man, I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it.

Tai Chi for all.

Team Ireland, plus a couple of honorary guests.

Maria, how you managed to be Spanish, Irish, German, Italian and British all at the same time amazes me. A true European...

Until next time.

Hi Everyone,

Within the Master Ding Academy, consistency is key. Not just in our own practice as students, but also for Instructors teaching. And as we know, without consistent observation and correction by our teacher, it’s very easy to stray off the path. We forget things, we invent new things, we have great ideas. This is all normal and is why we must keep in close contact with our teacher.

MDA runs an annual Instructor Retreat, instructors spend the week being gently bought back into line so that we’re all pulling on the same rope, in the same direction. This year the Retreat will be running May 27th-June 3rd.

As instructors we’re not only ensuring consistency, we’re also making our Tai Chi better, and when we’re better, we can teach better..

As such, classes will not be running next week, we’ll be returning the week after, from June 6th, ready to go.

Have a good week everyone, when we get back, I expect to see the results of at least two weeks practice!

See you soon.

Gong hei fat choy!

Happy Chinese New Year.

In the Chinese calendar 2023 is the year of the Rabbit. The rabbit is the symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese Culture, thus 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.

On behalf of everyone in Master Ding Academy Ireland, we wish you all health, peace and prosperity for the year ahead.
