Lady Gaga at Bikram Yoga on the Lower East Side

Posted on: November 12th, 2010 at 6:26 am by

Despite her worldwide superstardom (and some pushback from locals), Lady Gaga still has time to frequent her old Lower East Side stomping grounds.  She was spotted dining at Remedy Diner over the summer, has a new perfume in the works inspired by the neighborhood, and most recently, working on her Yoga at Bikram Yoga.

Thanks to a tip from Lowereastnyc, the Yoga Dork brings word the Lady Gaga recently practiced Yoga with owner instructor Tricia Donegan.  This will no doubt help bring in more clientele to the studio, located on the second floor of 172 Allen Street.

DNAinfo digs further, and reveals that the class occurred on September 10, and that Gaga was a onetime student of Ms. Donegan before all the fame. In fact, while she was still an NYU student in 2004.  The Fame Monster even left the following note for her teacher on the last visit:


Thank you so much for today. Lately I’ve been kicking ass in yoga, but I’m excited to embark on an even deeper journey with you. You are such an inspiration. I will be back soon. W more hydration + sleep. Yoga heals me + so do you.
