When Melanie Dawn said she'd be hosting free Yoga sessions at Nose Creek Park every Monday, weather permitting, she meant it.

This Monday, being the Labour Day Long Weekend, and every monday at 6:30, "Yogies" will be out in full force working on their strength and stamina in this interesting form of exercise.

"It doesn't matter if you're a weight lifer, a hockey player, a football player, a runner," says Dawn, "yoga increases your ability to do the sport you love. It's amazing that way."

While the sessions are free, it's asked that people who show up to the sessions provide a non-perishable food donation. To date, after only three weeks, the free Yoga at Nose Creek Park has managed to collect 40 kilograms of food, and $90 for the Airdrie Food Bank.
