Meet Tori Reynolds and Ben Rivet. If you haven’t heard of them already, you will want to familiarize yourself with their amazing project, GO W/ THE FLOW (GWTF). I was blown away when I took their class this summer at Wanderlust Festival Squaw Valley, as I realized it was the most inspiring class I had taken in a long time. This charismatic duo from Ohio is on the road spreading joy to yogis by sharing their playful vinyasa and creative live musical sequencing. Their classes are original, uplifting, and their love of life is contagious. Here they share their story with the Yoga Trade Community:
How did you find yoga?
Ben: I took my first yoga class in college at University of Dayton’s rec plex. My uncle had raved about yoga when I was home between my junior and senior year, so when I got back to school I found out they had free classes, and there seemed to be a lot of cute girls.., so it thought I’d give it a try for a while. I soon began to realize the tremendous benefits it provided my mind and body, and I’ve been practicing in some form or another for the last 7 years. After school I started practicing (via trade) in exchange for graphic design and web work for a nearby studio in Dayton. All this time connected to a studio community greatly deepened and nurtured my practice and love for yoga in a more holistic sense of the word. That’s where I met Tori, and the GO W/ THE FLOW project was born, and we’ve been able to use the project to practice and “study” yoga around the country since 2012. Taking classes at some of the best studios in the country with such a wide variety of teachers, has shown me how flexible and perfect yoga can be for my life and anyone else who finds it.
