Grand Master Yap
Biography | Achievements
Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai has more than 50 years of experience in Feng Shui. Though now primarily known as a Feng Shui master, he is equally well-versed in Chinese medicine, martial arts especially Wu Shu, Qi Gong, metaphysics, palmistry and philosophy.
Grand Master Yap's reputation as a Feng Shui master pre-dated the worldwide fascination with Feng Shui that began in the 1990s. As early as the 1960s, he already did Feng Shui readings for family and friends. As his reputation grew, he became a consultant for private clients and corporations the world over.
Grand Master Yap also captured a feather in his cap as a pioneering Feng Shui master who conducted his classes in the English language. This starting point was in the early 1980s in London, long before Feng Shui caught worldwide attention.
Grand Master Yap's vast knowledge and technical skills are sought by other Feng Shui masters as well. He has offered his thoughts to other Feng Shui masters, including renowned author and speaker Lillian Too, who sought his advice when writing her early books. Grand Master Yap also created a form of Qi Gong known as Yan Shou Gong. Literally translated as Martial Art for Longevity, it's a combination of movements designed to help busy people enjoy health benefits.
Grand Master Yap's four children are his most trusted assistants in his Feng Shui and Qi Gong endeavours. The children - Boh Heong, Boh Hian and Boh Chu - were among his first students who have established themselves as Feng Shui masters. They represent the future and continuity of his work.
Today, Grand Master Yap is also a successful corporate figure with various business enterprises. Well in his 70s now, he follows a tight schedule and spends more than 50 days of training and seminar a year worldwide.
