"I am currently taking Dr. Christina’s T’ai Chi Chih class and am just loving it. I find it very calming, healing, and it is helping me to be more connected and directed in life."

I can tell Christina has many years of personal and teaching practice. She is calm, loving, goes at a very comfortable pace, gives very clear instructions, and breaks down the movements into segments that make it very easy to learn and remember. I also really appreciate her sharing the broader concepts behind the practice, and helping students to visualize connecting to the Chi energy outside of us and within us."

"Dr. Christina is an excellent teacher! I know this from my direct experiences within her beginner T'ai Chi Chih classes."

"My whole being felt the effects of this T'ai Chi Chih practice. In each class, Dr. Christina goes over where to place your feet, hands, and legs. The initiation of each movement then supports a inner confidence that brings deep ease."

"Dr. Christina breaks down each movement so it is easy to understand where to place one's hands, feets, arms, legs. It is very comforting, giving inner confidence in bringing in the Chi Life Force."

"I have been doing T'ai Chi Chih with Dr. Christina for almost 6 months using Zoom. We all follow Christina on the screen and do all the movements. It is wonderful. We can feel the Chi without leaving our homes. Any anxiety we might have is replaced with relaxation and positive energy! I hope you can join us and spread the Chi!"

"Rev. Dr. Christina is amazing. She has a caring fluidity about her that makes the T'ai Chi Chih class extraordinary. She models for us the rhythm, movements and pace which makes it easy for us all to come together as a whole. She is wonderful at creating online community, giving us the opportunity to come early and stay afterwards. You can tell how much she loves T'ai Chi Chih!"

"Great introduction to the basic movements and concepts of working with the Chi. As a Yogi, I understand and work with Chi energy. However Dr. Christina presents the concept in a new way. This practice is very grounding!"

"Learning T'ai Chi Chih with Dr. Christina has become a treasured weekly ritual of peace and communion for me. I value Dr. Christina as a spiritual mentor and the practice of TCC as a spiritual path of ever unfolding depth and connection with the primordial energy that lives through each of us so beautifully is vibrant and distinct. And finding our TCC practice community of kindred spirits is a real bonus!" ~ Lori Jacobs

"Although I have been meditating for years, I am new to the Qi Gong type of practice. I am currently taking Dr. Christina’s T’ai Chi Chih class and am just loving it. I find it very calming, healing, and it is helping me to be more connected and directed in life."

About Christina Tillotson, Your Accredited T’ai Chi Chih Instructor 

Christina Tillotson seated picture

I have been practicing T’ai Chi Chih since 1983 and teaching it since 1993.

I have taught at yoga studios, gyms, businesses to assist their employees release stress, the Marine base at Camp Pendleton, assisted living facilities, and senior independent living facilities.

I started the T’ai Chi Chih program at the Encinitas Senior Center in 1998 and have been teaching there ever since. I have been teaching Universal Spiritual Principles online since 1998, so teaching T’ai Chi Chih online during this challenging time is perfectly natural for me.

Now as a Minister for Centers for Spiritual Living with my own thriving business and the former Distance Education Dean for the Holmes Institute in consciousness studies, my  life can get really stressful.

My T’ai Chi Chih practice and teaching has kept me centered and is a major contribution to staying healthy now as a senior citizen.
