How Your Story Helps
What better gift could you give than to inspire someone to take the first step in a life-changing journey?
Anyone like me?
Before starting something new people often think - THEY can do it, but can I? Or, it worked for THEM but could it work for ME? Before and after journeys described in testimonials can provide hope that people "like them" can see change.
What is it like?
Before starting with Tai Chi, people often have no idea what to expect. Even returning Tai Chi students will wonder how their experience will differ with another teacher. Testimonials will help people get a sense for what to expect.
Knowing how Tai Chi has changed someone's life offers important insight into whether it's the type of change the reader wants to invest their time and effort into. Knowing specifically why you choose IAI over other options is key, too!
Dimitri K. Mougdis began his study of Tai Chi Chuan under Grand Master Gin Soon Chu in Boston on February 1, 1983. Sifu Dimitri is one of the last remaining teachers of the original classical Yang family forms.
In June of 2000, Sifu Dimitri established the Internal Arts Institute with the guidance of Grand Master Gin Soon Chu and Master Vincent Chu. The Internal Arts Institute is dedicated to teaching the true Classical Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan for promoting good mental and physical health as well as Self-Defense.
Not sure what to write?
There is no wrong way to write a testimonial, but if you need some inspiration here are a few testimonials we have collected for IAI in the past:
"Tai chi, as practiced at the Internal Arts Institute, teaches humility, rewards perseverance, and reveals itself in a progression of epiphanies that constitute continual rebirth. It amounts to a simple truth endlessly refreshed and revealed with increasing illumination. Only a great teacher can make it thus."
"As a Physical Therapist, learning Tai Chi from Dimitri enhanced not only my personal health, but also the outcomes I have treating my patients. I've found Tai Chi to be effective at treating people with a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to balance problems and joint pain. Dimitri is a wonderful, enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated teacher. He is very sincere about passing on true Yang Tai Chi to his students. I highly recommend him."
"In the three years that I have practiced with Dimitri, I have seen my mind, body and energy levels transform. I am in awe of the way Dimitri practices his form and extremely proud of the ways I have grown and improved under his tutelage. I cannot recommend enough!"
