Move Well, Stay Healthy, Be Happy

Live In-Studio and Online Classes

Fun and Fabulous classes. Laugh, chill out, challenge, resolve pain and promote healing.  Our Classes are 'Do-able' for ANY Age, Body Type, Fitness level, or Ability. Customizations are encouraged to make each class successful for You and Your body's unique needs. Start from where You are, and enjoy your Fitness Progress, the Health Benefits, Rewards of Aging Well, and Feeling Better every day.

We combine the practices of yoga, resistance stretching, breath, Qigong, Tai chi, Pilates and yoga therapy. We don't use the language of Sanskrit or chant in class. We use more popular music than a "traditional yoga studio" might and are light hearted and relaxed.

MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

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."

Amy ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure Totally Turned Around. 7 months with RiversZen  "The results are better than good ... they are amazing. On top of that I can easily pick something up from the floor, I know It sounds silly but it's huge. I sleep better. I eat better."

Betsy ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"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"

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.

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   ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


I always walk in half bent and walk out pain free and standing tall and you teach with a yummy mom and chicken soup way that just feels good! Thank you, thank you. Stacey  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


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 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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 two 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  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


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 M    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Kim, The position of personal chef to our household is still available... just saying. Sara
(Kim is the RiversZen master cookbook chef  low carb cookbook included in your membership)  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Loved the just stop concept, I’m right there with you on that and appreciate your supportive podcasts.  Thanks! Jan  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
