Lady Gaga’s rock-star fitness routine includes lots of yoga, and she looks great doing it!
Gaga showed off her yoga moves on Instagram, where she put her toned physique on display. “Time to tell last night’s pizza whose boss,” Gaga wrote in the caption to her Instagram photo. “Yoga with @triciadonegan”
Gaga gave props to her NYC-based yoga teacher Tricia Donegan of Bikram Yoga LES as she posted a series of selfies wearing only a bra top and a tiny thong.
Gaga, a longtime workout fanatic, has practiced yoga for years, and admitted she exercises even when she’s drunk, Examiner reported.
“I’ve got to work out every day, and I work out hung over if I am hung over,” she said. “And it’s about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I do a ton of yoga.”Yoga promotes natural weight loss and reduces stress, said Christina Brown, author of The Yoga Bible.
Lady Gaga is in great shape after gaining 25 pounds in 2013 binge-eating pizza and pasta at her parents’ NYC Italian restaurant. Gaga lost the weight quickly, saying her weight loss secrets are yoga and a portion-controlled diet.
While Gaga wasn’t bothered by her weight gain, she was called out by the media over her fuller figure, prompting the petite singer to hit back at critics via Twitter.
“To all the girls that think you’re ugly because you’re not a size 0, you’re the beautiful one. It’s society who’s ugly,” she said.
Gaga also revealed on her blog that she battled bulimia for over 10 years, and encouraged fans to embrace their bodies without judgment.
“[I’ve had] bulimia and anorexia since I was 15,” she wrote on her blog. “My weight loss/gain since I was child has tormented me.”Gaga, born Stefani Germanotta, finally overcame bulimia after realizing the constant vomiting was damaging her voice. “I had to stop. The acid on your vocal chords — it’s very bad,” she said. “It’s very dangerous.”
Gaga underscored that young girls need to value themselves and not get caught up in self-destructive cycles of crash-dieting and self-loathing.
The pop icon said she has finally learned to love herself, flaws and all. “This is who I am,” she wrote. “And I am proud at any size.”
Lady Gaga’s longtime trainer is fitness expert Harley Pasternak, author of The Body Reset Diet. Pasternak’s other celebrity clients include Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson and Megan Fox.
