Moksha Yoga: The Recession Buster

Moksha Hot Yoga– quite literally – is booming with new Clifton studio, Cincy expansion

Five-year-old Moksha growing with USquare studio in 2013, expanding by 50 percent in Cincy. 

When people are stressed, they need exercise, and mental purity, perhaps more than ever.’

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ March 1, 2013] The husband-and-wife team of Ellen and Michael Bradley, owners of the first Moksha Yoga studios in the United States via Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, never doubted their recipe of physician and mental serenity would succeed in The ‘Natti.

They readily, and happily admit, however, to be amazed at the speed with which Cincinnatians and clients from all across the Tristate – people from all walks, shapes, sizes and colors – have embraced the heat, power and peace delivered by their enterprise, Moksha Yoga, a new breed of the practice in 100-degree indoor heat.

“We knew it would be successful, but we’ve been blown away by the number of new people still coming in, every day. Maybe it’s the economy. When things are going bad, when people get all stressed out, they need something that will exercise the body, while calming the mind,” said Ellen Bradley, a Northern Kentucky native who met her husband and business partner in college at Villanova University.

The Moksha Yoga community in Greater Cincinnati has mushroomed past 7,000 clients. As a direct response, the Bradleys have followed through on the local portion of their growth strategy (they would still like to add studios regionally in Louisville and Lexington) with a new studio opening at U-Square in Clifton early next year, while expanding their Cincinnati studio by 50 percent with a new massage therapy practice, Flourish Massage.

The Bradleys credit a skilled, loyal team of more than two dozen instructors for their ability to continue to grow and expand, in the midst of a tumultuous economic backdrop.

“Our teachers are the heart of Moksha Yoga,” said Ellen, who still teaches classes several times a day. Moksha Yoga Cincinnati and Moksha Yoga Northern Kentucky classes start as early as 6 a.m. and continue through the late evenings, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Classes are conducted in strict silence and 100-degree heat, lasting one hour, with no Blackberrys nor iPhones allowed.

One of the seven pillars* of Moksha Yoga is “Be Accessible.” The new USquare studio for Moksha Yoga Cincinnati will measure over 3,000 square feet and cater to UC students, employees and personnel, as well as the nearby hospitals and burgeoning medical community. The studios offer regular yoga classes for kids, and pre-natal yoga instruction.

That’s the cool thing, you can come in completely new, unable to even touch your thighs, and it doesn’t matter,” Ellen added.

“Nobody will judge you. If you can breathe, you can do Moksha Yoga.”

Co-owner Michael Bradley, current head basketball coach at Summit Country Day High School, was a dominant college hoopster, playing for Tubby Smith as a Wildcat at the University of Kentucky before transferring to Villanova. A first-round pick of the Toronto Raptors, he and Ellen picked up the Moksha Yoga addiction in Canada, birthplace of the movement, which they continued to practice through several stops on the European professional basketball circuit in Spain, Germany and Lithuania. When the couple moved back to Ellen’s hometown of Northern Kentucky five years ago, they launched Moksha Yoga. Ellen (nee Suetholz) grew up in Fort Mitchell and graduated from Notre Dame Academy in 1997.
