Because it’s Monday!
It’s Lady Gaga! The whiskey-sippin’ yoga-toxin’ pop star in her new video for “Born This Way” just released from the loins of…outer space? Yes, born this way she is, practically in her birthday suit. Not sure why she has to be mostly naked to let her lotus unfurl, but when you yoga in your underwear we suppose that’s how you feel most comfortable. Also, no HUGE 10″ tall claw shoes? Yoga looks good on you, lady.
The song kicks in around the 2:30 mark, after the space-trippy, good/evil duality birthing manifesto preceedings.
We appreciate the yoga incorporation, intentional or not. Though we think she could use a few tips on her urdhva gagurasana.
re “her urdhva dhanurasana” – maybe she’s “exploring” the pose? 😉
last night, watched a free online yoga class sample, found via tweet: “March issue of Kripalu Online is available! http://bit.ly/apvXWA”
the guy leading the class really got into moving some of those static poses around, looked interesting, limbering 😉
supposed to be a signup for the monthly issues, but never did find it though
That video was like a twisted pop music on acid version of the Dark Crystal…but with more masturbation and disturbing stirrup gynecological apparatus obviously.
I agree. The first time I saw it I thought Dark Crystal straight away.
she’d better trademark that asana…..
i love this video and lady gaga’s body makes me wanna do bikram yoga. seriously.
she is absolutely one of the creepiest looking famous people to come along in ages!
Wow, that video just blew me away!
Jessica mentioned Dark Crystal, but I’d also go for a bit of a modernised Superman/Krypton kind of thing going on there!
However, it’s not much of a stretch to actually see the Shiva/Shakti creation of the universe mythology in this video as well. Plus the whole “born this way” thing… all part of some very yogic concepts, yes?
She does have an amazing body – totally the modern day Madonna and I’d say more talented, too. 🙂
don’t know what i just saw
don’t know what to think
my mind certainly ain’t clear
heads // tails // wha?
however, this is what i have to say – today
between the earthquake
and lady gaga
i feel a need to go deep into prayer and walk and talk with God
yoga no longer does it for me
too much going on
i come out of my shoulderstand into a bridge
and still wonder — what am i doing
then flip back into the shoulder stand
perhaps, it’s time to go to a nunery
i’m still in the shoulderstand
typing on my ipad
balancing on my head
but i do love this line
“I’m on the right track baby i was born this way.”
i’mm just sayin that’s like “do what thou wilt is the whole law” and we know who said that many years ago in England
and he did yoga too
peace dork fam
Love love love the video and the song….
Does doing a particular a physical posture that resembles an asana make it yoga? Isn’t there something more that is required?
Well said Kashif! Yoga has lost its true purpose and meaning going west wards.
