UC President does hot yoga for campus safety

CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) - University of Cincinnati President Santa Ono is bringing new meaning to the Twitter hashtag '#HottestCollegeInAmerica'.

President Ono took a hot yoga class on Wednesday at Yoga Alive in Clifton, joined by Proudly Cincinnati campaign Co-Chair Buck Niehoff.

Yes, hot yoga.

The event was in support of Men's Health Month, as well as the successful partnership between Yoga Alive and UC's Proudly Cincinnati campaign, which has raised funds toward UC campus safety and security initiatives.

For every participant in the class, Yoga Alive made a $5 donation to UC's NightRide program, which provides free, safe and reliable transportation for students and the UC campus community.

A health-themed reception followed the morning yoga class.
