London: Lady Gaga’s private teacher has attributed her achievement to practicing Bikram Yoga.
Tricia Donegan, a former college soccer player, met the singer before she got famous.
“Lady Gaga is something very special, because she is a woman of service,” the Daily Mail quoted him as telling The New York Times Insider.
“She uses her talent to make this world better, and that’s because she practices yoga.
“She is blessed that she has talent, but what’s special about her is that she’s going to change the world,” he said.
‘Bikram’ is based on the traditional yoga techniques carried out in sweltering temperatures of 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
The sport, popularised in the Seventies by guru Bikram Choudhury, is hard work and normally consists of a 90-minute session in sauna-like temperatures where 26 different postures are carried out.
The 25-year-old is said to have started Bikram Yoga back in New York in 2004 before she was famous.
