Wu Dang Master Yun Xiang Tseng, director of Chi for Longevity. Harvey has studied T’ai Chi and Qi Gong since 1996
with local Atlanta teachers as well as with Master Wei Lun Huang, of Florida. Since 2001, he has been a
teacher of T'ai Chi and Qi Gong, teaching for Rising Phoenix T'ai Chi, where he is Assistant Director. Working
with seniors is one of Harvey's talents and joys. He has taught since 2001 to those who attend Senior
Centers, those in Retirement Communities, as well as those over 50 in community classes. He has appeared with Cate Morrill,
Director, on televised programs and in web videos for CNN and more. He is a well trained, well respected and supportive teacher.
His many students credit his instruction for their new-found love of T'ai Chi and its benefits!
He also brings a keen understanding
of internal process and meditation to his work, as well as deep understanding of translating powerful athleticism into the
slow, controlled and fluid movements of T’ai Chi, as he has been an athlete all his life. Playing
high school football and pickup basketball, mountain biking and backpacking in the wilderness, he values Qi Gong for its stretching,
strengthening, and loosening characteristics. He also has been an avid downhill skier for 30 years, crediting T’ai Chi
and Qi Gong for the quick healing of a skiing knee injury. He is a very vocal proponent of T’ai Chi and Qi Gong as both
healing and exercise arts. He is endorsed by Master Yun Xiang to teach T'ai Chi 24 Movements and Qi
studied and practiced Transcendental Meditation for more than 30 years, traveled to 46 states and 20 countries,
and appreciates learning of the diversities and yet similarities in the many cultures of the globe.

benefited from Harvey’s caring, careful teachings. He is well liked by his students and respected by his peers, is patient,
knowledgeable, and wishes to share the art of T'ai Chi with all.
