FAO: Yogis and Yoginis out there ...
I've just started a yoga class (8pm - 9.30pm) and would really appreciate suggestions on light but filling foods to eat before attending. I get home from work at about 5.30pm - 6pm so have little time to get some food. Last week I made soup and tried to finish it before 7pm (I left for class at 7.15pm) and was starving when I got home about 10pm so had a little more soup!. This week I think I'll make soup the night before and reheat same with a view to eating before 6pm. Any suggestions as to what works for you would be much appreciated .
You should try to aim for two hours between eating a meal and doing yoga, and longer for heavy meals. That way your stomach is not full or as full and frankly working out on a full stomach is just uncomfortable. So I would suggest eating a big breakfast, a good lunch and maybe having a snack or two before your class...what time do you usually eat dinner?
