About the Hosts

Dave Stevens

Owner, Master Trainer

My goal is to help you to become stronger, more flexible and pain free while moving and living with ease.

50 years of sports related injuries left me virtually crippled. The discovery of Ki-Hara "Resistance Stretching" literally saved my aching body. Strala Yoga and Strong Posture exercises were the keys to maintaining my new found health. I have a burning desire to share this "miracle" with anyone who desires a stronger, healthier body with less pain.

Co-Founder of RiversZen Studios in Oregon and Washington. Dave is a Certified Ki-Hara Master Trainer, Certified Posture Exercise Professional and Strala Yoga Guide.
