Michelle credits yoga with helping her to cope with the stresses of single parenthood and the death of Matilda's father, Heath Ledger. So she developed Yoga for Single Moms. "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," she told Marie Claire in 2011. "The idea behind the program is that if you can clear the time, we do the rest. It provides child care while the mom is in the yoga class, and it's all free."
