[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ Sept. 30, 2014] Ellen and Michael Bradley at Modo Hot Yoga in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky have long embraced all from their Queen City community at the three Modo studios across town.

“‘It’s the heat, the exercise, keeping healthy and clearing your mind. All at once,” said Whitworth, who visits Modo Hot Yoga at least once weekly.

Whitworth has lassoed several other Bengals into his routine as well, over the years, such as fellow offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler (Go Badgers) and cornerback/kick returner Adam “PacMan” Jones.

The Bradleys opened their original Modo Hot Yoga – and the first in the United States – off Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs, Northern Kentucky, in 2008 ( The first Cincinnati studio opened at Columbia Square in 2010, the second at USquare in Clifton last year.
