Michelle Williams Covers Marie Claire: Launching Yoga For Single Moms Program in Boston

Michelle Williams Covers Marie Claire: "Yoga Gave Me Relief Like Nothing Else"

In the February issue of Marie Claire, Michelle Williams testifies to the healing power of yoga. She tells the mag that the practice helped her cope with the 2008 death of ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger and become a better mother to their daughter Matilda: "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."

It was then that Michelle, 30, started to think about those single mothers who can't practice yoga because hiring a babysitter is too expensive. Because of this, the actress helped start The Yoga For Single Moms Project. According to its website, the project's mission is to "support the sometimes challenging path of single motherhood by providing a yoga sanctuary for health and well-being." With the help of fellow cofounders, Boston-based yoga instructors Chanel Luck and Bonnie Argo, Michelle tells Marie Claire that the pilot program is launching sometime soon: "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."

I agree that yoga definitely helps me be a better mom. It calms me down and increases my patience. Plus it just makes me feel good.
