Christine Castillo

Christine’s inspirational story started her as a patient, then Qigong a student, and is now a Qigong Instructor.

Born and raised in San Jose, California. Christine loves practicing and teaching Qigong (Chee-gung)! Qigong has changed her life in so many ways. Just to name a few Qigong helped with managing stress, she learned how to calm down her thoughts and change them. Qigong has helped me reach other levels of subconscious being. Qigong teaches empowerment and teaches us how to slow down and listen to your body.

Christine focuses her teachings on the Qigong cleansing exercises which help release these toxic emotions, learn to accept the things we cannot control, learn to have peace and forgiveness. Not only with ourselves but with others.

Christine has been practicing Qigong (chee-gung) for eight years, teaching for five years. She teaches classes in-person and online, with youth groups, with adults, events and one-on-one sessions.

She is also learning about Classes Chinese Medicine for seven years and is a Morning Crane Curative Qigong practitioner and affiliate.
