Most young yoga practitioners, especially newbies, frequently ask the same questions about what your body needs before and after a yoga workout. Most likely, you will enjoy doing yoga if your stomach is empty, and there should be an interval of at least 3 hours between your last meal and your upcoming yoga practice.
Three hours prior to your workout, you should consider eating fruit, or simply a cup of coffee. In case you feel too hungry, a slice of bread with jam will do the job.
Eating before yoga, does however depend on how fast the foods digest in your stomach. Water usually take about 15-20 minutes, fruit 30 to 40, and light meals may take up to 2 hours.
If you find yourself hungry right before the workout, it is okay to add an additional fruit before the lesson, just try not to make it a habit since yoga is usually done better on an empty stomach.
Post workout, the best foods for your body are salads with a mixture of protein (tuna, egg, chicken.) Consider checking out exciting new salad recipes that include any kind of protein!
