Michelle Williams has been through some very real hardships, and has used meditation and yoga to get through them. When her former partner Heath Ledger died she used meditation to cope, and since then has done yoga to make her a better person.
That’s why she and two friends have created the Yoga For Single Moms Project:
“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!"
Michelle talked to Marie Claire about her vision:
“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.”
We love this idea! Yoga relieves stress, which single moms need more than anyone else!!
