Movie Stars Wesley Snipes and Michelle Williams Bringing Yoga to Jailmates and Single Moms

First it was Michelle Williams raving about how her yoga practice saved her and daughter Matilda during the tumultuous time after Heath Ledger’s death.

And now we’ve got Jungle Fever star Wesley Snipes teaching it to inmates at Pennsylvania federal prison. Reports state that:

The 48-year-old star…is apparently holding yoga classes behind bars.

Reports say the actor, who was convicted of failing to file federal income tax returns, has even requested yoga mats for himself and other inmates.

Snipes is a black belt in tae kwon doe and has trained in martial arts for years studying Karate, Kung Fu and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music and dance.

All yoga, all good.
