World-Renowned Tai Chi Master and Daoist Monk Brings Global Revolution to Tucson

Recent Tucson transplant Monk Yun Rou (meaning Soft Cloud) brings a unique opportunity to reduce stress, strengthen immunity and improve longevity. Yun Rou’s award-winning books, monthly newsletter and tai chi classes offer Tucsonans a unique opportunity to learn and study ancient wisdom teachings directly with an ordained Daoist Monk.
Yun Rou will also be hosting a special two-day Daoist Workshop on October 29 and 30. This is his first time hosting a workshop in Tucson and attendees are coming in from around the world. The $250 seminar will feature Chen Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Daoist meditation. The workshop is now open for registration and space is limited. Beginners to Black Belts will all benefit from the special opportunity.
His teachings provide insight, guidance and practical solutions to help better face the challenges of our modern world. Known to reduce stress and strengthen immunity, practicing tai chi with Yun Rou can help students to find better health, more happiness, strength and balance.
Author of more than 21 novels and non-fiction books, Yun Rou’s writings and teachings have been covered in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and many other publications. His book Mad Monk Manifesto won both a gold and silver Nautilus award in 2019. His recent memoir, The Monk of Park Avenue, a literary memoir like no other, has received popular and critical acclaim. Just published Wasp Warrior, Monk Yun Rou’s latest adventure, is literary magical realism with an Asian twist, and an intimate portrait of madness and love from a writer who spans East and West in a myriad ways.

He is also the creator and host of a documentary series on Integrative Medicine and was the host of the hit national public television show, “Longevity Tai Chi with Arthur Rosenfeld,” which reached over 60,000,000 households.
