We are happy and honored to study and to be Certified under Master Yun Xiang Tseng  (known to his students by his familiar name of  Master Chen).  Here is a link to his website:
Below Master Chen's picture you will find the latest information on the class offerings and descriptions.
Master Yun Xiang Tseng was  a child prodigy in China. At the age of six, he was found by his female grandmaster who recently moved on at the wonderful age of 130. He was brought to the sacred mountain Wu Dang to be trained by China’s pre-eminent masters in the ancient arts of Chi Gong and Tai Chi Chuan. Master Tseng Yun Xiang is truly a gift to all who have experienced his teaching. He is fully accredited by the Chinese government to teach Chi Gong and Tai Chi.  He has practiced the art of healing for over 20 years and is an expert in both the healing arts and many styles of Tai Chi.

Master Yun Xiang Tseng (Chen)



Dear Rising Phoenix T’ai Chi and  Shoulders Down Movement Improvement T’ai Chi Students, following is detailed information for our upcoming visit by Master Chen!  There are several types of classes, so take your pick or take them all! Since this is the first time in Atlanta these forms are offered, we can't say whether the movements are big, small, hard, soft, complicated or easy, but it will be good!!!   Always monitor your own body, move only to the point of resistance, don't go beyond what is comfortable, and ask for adjustments as needed! The meditation and theory classes will be great to deepen understanding for everyone!      

                 For more information, please see Master Chen’s
