What to Eat Before Yoga Class

It's important to feel just right to get the most out of your practicenot full or heavy, but not weak or hungry either.

Finding that balance when you eat before yoga can sometimes be just as tricky as learning a new arm balance, but when you find that sweet spot, it's totally worth the effort. For me, if I have had a busy day and am doing an evening class, I like to have a snack about one hour before so I have a little bit of time to digest. In this video, I share with you my absolute favorite pre- or post-yoga snack, and it's perfect for summer (or any other time of year). As with everything in yoga, tune in and listen to your body's cues—it will tell you what to do! Enjoy!
