RFY's Founders: Alee & Ben Link


Alee was twelve when she took her first yoga class, and she fell instantly in love. She continued her practice for over a decade before receiving basic teacher training while attending college in New York City.

When she returned to Columbus (for the first time), she taught yoga at Toni's Dancing School to her family and friends. Then one day, Ben came in for a class fresh off a 14-month adventure overseas. He, too, fell in love with yoga. But he also fell in love with his teacher.

Over the years, Ben encouraged Alee’s development as a yoga teacher, and she eventually completed her 200hr RYT certification from the White Lotus Foundation in 2011. But it wasn’t until after their marriage when the two took a four-month trip through Southeast Asia that their vision for River Flow Yoga truly began to take shape.

On October 31st, 2013, Alee and Ben opened River Flow Yoga and Wellness for its very first class. Since then, they have met some truly amazing people, heard beautiful stories of transformation, and seen the growth of an awesome yoga community in their home town.
