Becky  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

She Can Now Hike, Jog, Play Golf or Swim Without Pain! "Probably the best part is the personalization, they realize that no one plan fits all. I have done many programs and know that this is something I can stick with. The support and the accountability that I get from them and the others is amazing."

"I've had many sessions using every modality you can imagine. The doctors had thrown up their hands and told me I would need to learn to live with the pain. Those days are now behind me due to RiversZen. For the first time in decades I feel totally in control of my own health! Blessings"

" RiversZen Real People Fit is a wonderful place to stretch, get rid of pain, and relax. I had a painful shoulder on and off for years. So I was happily surprised when Peggy’s exercises fixed my shoulder in just a few weeks. Peggy is knowledgeable, compassionate, and just a super nice person. And her class Blast Pain with Therapy Balls is truly a blast. "  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Helene 

"I have had the privilege of experiencing the incredible offerings of RiversZen and I must say, it has been a truly transformative experience. From their expert instruction in yoga and meditation to their unique approach to resistance stretching and tai chi, RiversZen offers a comprehensive wellness program that caters to all levels of practitioners.

Their beautiful studio provides a calming atmosphere that truly allows you to unwind and focus on your practice, while their knowledgeable and supportive instructors make every session a personalized and fulfilling experience.

What I appreciate most about RiversZen is their holistic approach to wellness - they don't just focus on the physical aspect, but also emphasize the importance of mental and emotional health. Through their classes and workshops, I have gained a greater sense of self-awareness, mindfulness, and overall well-being.

If you are looking to improve your physical and mental health, I highly recommend RiversZen. Their commitment to providing quality instruction, personalized attention, and a welcoming community make them truly stand out in the world of wellness." Candy ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hey Peggy I just got done getting X-rays. No results yet. But I had the most amazing conversation with the X-ray tech. She was amazed with how strong and bendy I am.
I have also realized how fortunate I am that I am in such good shape and strong enough to get around with this bad foot. That is thanks to you and Dave. I truly am grateful for the transformation.  Hugs to you both. Jane ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

I just compared some of the notes from my physical in 2021 to the physical I had last week. In the past year I lost 12 pounds, my blood pressure is lower and…… tada ….. something I never before paid attention to. Oxygen saturation. Last year it was 97%. This year 99%. Could it be your emphasis on proper breathing? All my lab work was within normal limits is every category. Because of Riverszen I am healthier than ever. Thank you. You are all awesome.  Appreciate you so much.
Linda B ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

I personally feel your podcasts are a daily source of Believable, Sincere Inspiration that everyone NEEDS to hear, think about, and contemplate. Currently in society, especially since covid quarantine and society's shutdown and the resulting public negativity.... We desperately need to have 'someone' saying Positive Uplifting things and giving us new ideas, to boost our mental strength, to help us keep our heads on straight, and give us daily inspiration. YOU DO THAT !! Your Podcasts are brilliant, and appreciated more than you know. Dane  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dave is a superb instructor. Excellent class, very good instruction on resistance stretching, great for a beginner like me but also included more advanced work. What could be better than a balance and stretching class looking out over the Columbia River? MaryFrances ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dave's classes make working out fun. His classes combine yoga with tai chi and breathing techniques, as well as a little meditation. His sense of humor truly makes "working out" fun. And after a year of participating in Dave's classes I am feeling much stronger and more flexible. Linda ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Love the stretch before bed with Kim. Just what I need to end my day. Thank you Zara  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Every class is amazing! Both Dave and Peggy are excellent at instruction and managing expectations. They provide individual attention, recognizing that everyone’s body and skill level are different. Every class is focused on blending mind, body, and spirit. The studio is clean and provides a very friendly atmosphere. Instruction is budget friendly. I am in my mid-sixties and attend class 5-6 days a week. Dannie  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I just completed two classes back to back, these early morning motion and flow with the stretch class are a great way to start the week. Dave does a great job listening to his students and seems to tailor the class to our needs. Simply wonderful! Tim  ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Class with Peggy is always so calming and centering with good stretch and strength building. Love it! Harmony  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The work you three do is awesome. Thanks so much.  I am thrilled that when I googled yoga studios on the Peninsula I found you.  You are so much more than a yoga studio. Linda B  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I first started back in June to jump start a healthy weight loss that keeps it off, wanted to be able to jump on my 16 hand horse from the ground, I can now do it but its not graceful, so now I want more flexibility and strength. I feel amazing and love this program. Zara  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My goal was finding the joy in movement and developing a practice I feel drawn to, maybe even look forward to every day (not just another chore). What the two of you teach and the way you do it, the many yummies and the deep listening, have opened that wish and possibility. Bettina  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’m crushing it....I think I finally have control over food choices for me. Lost inches and pounds and a waaayyy better frame of mind. Thanks! Cynthia  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Great class! After a weekend of yardwork it worked the knots out of my back... at the beginning my main goal was to not gain the Covid 15 pounds, to feel better in my own skin and to maintain my sanity. Well I am down 20 pounds, I am more flexible than I have been in years and I do feel that taking a class every morning does elevate my mood. So I am attaining my goal and I am so very grateful. Jane  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I feel re-energized after only 4 days!  The best as always. This class fits my abilities while allowing me to challenge myself as well. Great! Donna   ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kim, The position of personal chef to our household is still available... just saying. Sara
