Michelle Williams to launch yoga centreJanuary 12th, 2011 - 1:09 am ICT by IANS
London, Jan 11 (IANS) Actress Michelle Williams is all set to launch a yoga centre for single mothers.The “Brokeback Mountain” star, who has been raising her five-year-old daughter Matilda as a single mother since her ex-boyfriend, actor Heath Ledger, died of an accidental overdose in 2008, credits yoga to help cope with the tragedy.
Williams said the inner peace she found through the exercise inspired her to co-found “The Yoga for Single Moms Project”, which is now launching a pilot programme in Boston, reports dailystar.co.uk.
“Yoga gave me relief like nothing else. It made be 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,” she said.
“The idea behind the programme 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,” she added.
