Tai Chi

Classes in


Shifu Niall O’Floinn teaches weekly classes in Galway and special day seminars in other cities where his students teach or where invited by groups wishing to learn Tai Chi, whether they be acupuncture, shiatsu schools, active retirement groups, external martial arts clubs, mental health forums, Chinese communities, University programs etc.

Beginners classes are held in the city centre with a beautiful private area outside on the River Corrib for training on sunny days. We have bigger venues for when the Masters visit and students come from all over Ireland to attend.

Our goal is to provide a friendly atmosphere with a serious attitude to learning and helping students achieve their health and fitness goals. Over the past 15 years we have taught thousands of people Tai Chi and had a very positive influence on students becoming more healthy and aware of themselves.

Shifu O’Floinn is Director of Studies of the Galway Tai Chi Academy, Ireland’s largest Chen Style Tai Chi school and centre for teacher training.

So 8 months of the year you can train with him weekly in Galway in public classes or private one on one or small groups of up to 3 people maximum. He runs seminars at the Academy also where people from other parts of Ireland can travel to attend.

He also visits other schools who are members of Chen Tai Chi Ireland and is available to travel also to your club in Ireland even if you are not yet associated with Chen Tai Chi Ireland. To book a seminar with Shifu O’Floinn, please email with your inquiry.
