I will follow him...

I'm lucky to know Juris. Anyone who has met Juris would probably agree. I'd like to know him better but all in good time. Which is something that Juris would probably say. As a student with two decades of experience, I've come across a lot of teachers with a lot of personalities. I met Juris in April at a Viniyoga teacher training and expected one more personality with a half ounce of attention for his students. But I was wrong. He's quiet, I think. Maybe not around everyone. He's a little goofy. But he knows bodies, asana, sutras, and the transformative (sometimes discomfiting) power of quiet. For anyone looking to heal the body AND the mind, I recommend him.

The real deal.

I have been fortunate enough to be a student of Juris since 2010. He is filled with knowledge that comes from many years of study and practice in the rich tradition of the Krisnamacharya lineage. He is currently my mentor in my Viniyoga therapy training. I highly recommend this man as a teacher and mentor in the journey of yoga and of life.
