Here’s what people are saying about the Sifu Dimitri:
We are so grateful for our students, past and present.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
I'm a Physical Therapist...
"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."
Epiphanies and Rebirth
"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."
"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!"
