Atlanta's Tough Love Yoga  :Take everything you know think you know about yoga...and throw it out the window.  An Atlanta studio is breaking yoga stereotypes...and getting people in shape in the process. 

Tough Love Yoga was created back in 2010, and moved into its current Candler Park studio space in 2012.  The studio specializes in "alignment-based" yoga and offers classes to beginners, experts, and even expecting mothers -- but it's perhaps best known for its Metal Yoga classes. 

Metal Yoga is exactly what you think it is -- a yoga class accompanied by heavy metal music.    Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Tough Love Yoga, getting a look at what makes this fitness facility to unique.

Tuner Field Memories: When it comes to Braves baseball, 88 year old T.W. Lord has just about seen it all.

As a Braves season ticket holder since 1969, he has been there for most of the great moments in Braves history. He was there when Hank Aaron hit home run #715 in 1974, and he will be there for the beginning of the end of the Turner Field era as the Braves open the 2016 season hosting the Washington Nationals.

This year, the Braves will say goodbye to their home since 1997, Turner Field, a place where they have experienced a lot of success.  In 19 seasons at 'The Ted', the Braves made the playoffs 12 times, even advancing to the World Series in 1999.  So trying to choose some of the top moments at a place that has hosted so many is a tall order, but not for the team's longest tenured season ticket holder.

Watch the story to see Lord's top Turner Field memories, and feel free to comment with a few of your own.

Lord made the move from Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium with the Braves, and he has already picked out his seats as he prepares to follow his beloved team to SunTrust Park in Cobb County next year.

He just hopes the Braves will give Turner Field a proper send off...with a playoff apprarance. In fact there's nothing he'd like more than saying goodbye to the soon to be former home of the Braves, with a World Series title. Unlikely yes, but what a way to go...and remember they almost did it in 1996, the final year at the previous home of the Braves.
