And sometimes Celebriyogis warm our yogadorky hearts! Hollywood starlet, perpetual cutie and habitual under-the-radar indie actress, Michelle Williams is speaking out on how yoga practice helped her become a better person and mother. So inspired, Williams has announced she’s opening a Boston area center, Yoga for Single Moms.
Ms. Williams explains in Feb’s issue of Marie Claire how yoga and meditation helped her cope with the loss of partner Heath Ledger in 2008 and to become a better mother for their daughter Matilda, now 5.
She explained: ‘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.”
About the new project:
‘The idea behind the program is that if you can clear the time, we do the rest. It provides childcare while the mom is in the yoga class and it’s all free.’
Huzzah! Michelle credits her close relationship with Reese Witherspoon for getting involved in yoga. Celebriyogis unite.
