Nevada (US): American cultural icon Lady Gaga reportedly had a private yoga session in Cleveland (Ohio, USA) before she performed at a sold-out Quicken Loans Arena recently.
She reportedly had this session barefoot in an area studio of “Om Yoga”, which is described as a practice of flowing yoga asanas informed by precise attention to alignment and supported by the relaxed wakefulness.
Yoga teacher, who lead this session, reportedly remarked later about Lady Gaga: she’s a yogi at heart. In her recent Tweet, Lady Gaga talked about “rocknroll power yoga”.
Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, urged Lady Gaga to explore the spiritual dimension of yoga also besides its physical benefits.

Yoga was one of the six systems of orthodox Hindu philosophy, take a look at the rest of the five schools also, Rajan Zed suggested Lady Gaga.
