Harvey Meisner - Assistant Director
Harvey Meisner has received instructor certification for T'ai Chi and several Qi Gong forms and is a student under Wu Dang Master Yun Xiang Tseng. He 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, Retirement Communities, and those over 50 in community classes. He's appeared with Cate Morrill on televised programs for CNN and more.
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 has 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.
