Michelle Williams: Yoga for Single Moms Project

30-year-old actress, Michelle Williams, tells Marie Claire magazine that meditation helped her cope with the death of her former partner, Heath Ledger, and says yoga made her a better person -- one of the reasons why she wants to make yoga available for other single moms.

Michelle tells Marie Claire:

"Yoga gave me relief like nothing else; it made me a better person and a better mother. I could come back to my daughter anew. And then I started to think about how expensive it is to get a babysitter to take a yoga class, which makes it out of reach for so many women... The idea behind the program is that if you can clear the time, we do the rest. It provides childcare while the mum is in the yoga class, and it's all free."
Williams recently co-founded the Yoga for Single Moms Project with two friends in Boston, with the goal to create "A visionary project to support the sometimes challenging path of single motherhood by providing a yoga sanctuary for your health and well-being. And a fun place for your young ones to explore, create, play and be kids through yoga!"

Namaste to that!
