    I got so sick of the Canadian cold, I moved down to Charlotte just to avoid the snow. And of course to join the My Fox Carolinas family as a Digital Journalist. I grew up in Calgary (think the Houston of Canada) and after graduating from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Journalism, I moved to Toronto to cover sports; which in Canada means hockey.

Charlotte, NC - It's generally accepted that yoga is good for the mind, body and soul. It's a good way to relax, improve your posture and balance and even burn a few calories.

A new Charlotte program called Movement Charlotte has started a new kind of yoga that not only benefits the people taking the classes, but the entire community as well.

Movement Charlotte launched their program Monday night. The organization will put on one hour yoga classes in Midtown Park every Monday night. Instead of paying for the class, the organization is asking people to bring donations instead. Each month, these yoga classes will benefit a different Charlotte-area charity.

For the month of June, Movement Charlotte is benefiting Loaves and Fishes. They are asking people to bring a food item to donate as their 'admission charge' for the class.What they collect this month will go towards local food banks.
