Please join us at River Flow Yoga and Wellness to de-stress, release, breathe, sweat, and flow.
What brought me to River Flow Yoga and why do I keep coming back
A friend told me about the studio and really wanted me to go with her. I wasn't expecting to like class and thought yoga was only about slow movements and meditating. By the end of of my first month, I was loving yoga and decided to keep practicing at river flow. I keep coming back because I love it and I see myself improving in my practice. - Eliscia

RFY is a locally-owned, independent yoga studio located in Columbus, Georgia. Our group yoga classes are primarily rooted in Vinyasa (Flow) Yoga, where you connect your breath with mindful movement. However, we integrate styles and philosophies from the four major lineages of yoga (Raja, Jnana, Bhakti, and Karma) to create a balanced practice that suits our modern needs.
Our retail boutique is stocked with high-quality, functional, and fun yoga apparel and equipment. We also carry locally made skin and body care products, herbal teas, and other wellness products to enhance your life on and off the mat.
Your personal belongings will be safe in our cubbies during class, and there is also a dressing room and bathroom available. Complimentary tea, fresh towels, props, and mats are available for you, as well!
We use natural cleaning products, diffuse essential oils, burn nag champa incense, and grow air-filtering plants to instill a calming atmosphere.
Whether you're experienced or brand new to the practice, let us welcome you to our peaceful studio, so you may heal and strengthen your mind and body.
Om Sweet Om.
River Flow has everything you could possibly ask for in a studio...[E]very detail and corner of their space has been thought out to make sure you are in a place of peace and harmony. The space is clean, accommodating, and the tribe is just the most welcoming community to every level of yogi.
Whether it's your first time or you 1,000th time, you will leave floating on air with a feeling of wellness and light every time! - Tyler
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.
