Yoga is (not) difficult en français

At the Cinema Society/Thierry Mugler screening of Woody Allen's new feature Midnight in Paris (no spoilers please!), actress Rachel McAdams was asked "What's the strangest thing you did while shooting in Paris?" Her reply? "Yoga. I've been doing it for years, but it is difficult in French." 

To which we say: "Quuuuuoi?"

While practicing in a different country, in a different language, has its challenges, we wish she'd checked with us first! We could have hooked her up with a native English-speaking yoga teacher, or at the every least a bilingual one. There are many of both in Paris, and one of the great advantages of practicing in a cosmopolitan city is that there are abundant options depending on your desires.

And she may have learned a little something extra to boot.
