About Yuri
Yuri was not particularly athletic as a child. His journey into the physical arts began in
college, where he drew inspiration from martial arts films and old time strongmen. He studied physics in university, but quickly found that working in a lab or office was not
suited for him. He has since decided to pursue his love of the physical arts.
Yuri began his training as a young adult with no guidance, and eventually worked up to performing at a professional level. His progress and teaching style was developed
through endless persistence, experimentation and observation.
Yuri has trained with and learned from world-class hand balancers, circus artists, 
gymnasts and other experts in their field to further his perspective. He has also
practiced a variety of other disciplines including martial arts, dance, weightlifting, 
gymnastics and circus. All of this gives Yuri a very unique method to teach someone
of any age or skill level how to get upside down.
Above all, Yuri still considers himself a student, trying to learn all he can from any
