Hot room confessions

a snapshot into my Bikram yoga world

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
  • Sausage
  • 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?
