Ellen Bradley

Moksha Yoga Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

An avid athlete from a young age, Ellen discovered yoga at the end of her collegiate tennis career at Villanova University. From that first class, she fell in love!

Elmntl Fitness

Kevin Wimmer is the owner/trainer/motivator at ELMNTL Fitness. He walked away from a flourishing career as a Creative Director in Global Packaging to pursue his dream of instructing functional and fun fitness in an outdoor environment.
