WASHINGTON -- Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria will co-chair the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery's "Yoga: The Art of Transformation" exhibit gala this fall, the actor announced in a tweet Wednesday.

Hilaria Baldwin is a yoga instructor, which may explain the New York-based couple's interest in the Washington, D.C. exhibit. In May, she shared with HuffPost her yogic secret to avoiding anxiety at bedtime:

This may sound strange, but I get out of bed and do a few yoga postures on the floor. My husband thinks I’m strange but it works! After, I lie back down and breathe deeply and sleep like a baby.

Watch Alec and Hilaria Baldwin do yoga together at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival:

"The Art of Yoga" last month mounted a crowdfunding campaign that aims to raise $125,000 for the exhibit, which is scheduled to open October 19.
