Practicing Bikram Yoga requires energy, and food is energy for the body. However if you come to class with a full stomach, it could be very uncomfortable. Here are some general guidelines on eating before clas: if you attend afternoon or evening yoga class, leave about 2 to 3 hours of time between your last large meal and your class. If you attend a morning yoga class, it can be very helpful to have some food-calories in your body, so don't skip breakfast completely! Try having some fruit or toast (something that digests easily) an hour or so before class. These are general guidelines only, please talk to your Bikram teacher in the lobby if you have specific questions on this topic. Please read our nutritional guide.
