How does diet afftect yoga?
I am always thinking about how what I’m eating will affect my yoga later.
Do I really want to eat that hamburger three hours before yoga?
Here are some things I know I shouldn’t eat during the day before an evening Bikram yoga class:
- Jalapenos (made this mistake multiple times)
- Lots of garlic/onions
- Fast food in general
- Bagel and cream cheese (just not too soon)
I’ve also noticed that what I eat the night before can have some affects on yoga the next day. Specifically margaritas and Mexican food. Especially margaritas. I figure it’s that they contain tons of sugar and tequila.
Are there foods that are off limits to you before a yoga class?
