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.

It creates a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, exercise, stress management, emotional therapy and detoxification.
