Movie star James Spader was once the worst yoga teacher in New York.

The SECRETARY star admits he often fell asleep in class and left students in awkward positions while he snoozed.

He says, "I got to the point where I could actually lie down, shut my eyes and talk them through every position I was going to put them (students) in.

"I thought the whole thing was about relaxing. I realised later that what I was doing had no relation to yoga at all.

"I'd get them (students) in positions and then fall asleep because it was so f**king hot in the room. Then I'd come to, and they'd be stuck in this position all peering up and looking."
