Can I eat before doing Yoga?

Waiting Time

Yoga exercises exert pressure on the internal organs. So be sure not to eat before practice. If you've eaten a meal, wait at least two hours. If you've eaten a snack, wait 30 minutes to one hour.

Due to the massaging of the inner organs during yoga practice, it is also recommended not to drink an unusually large amount before your practice, and never to drink alcohol. Avoid caffeinated beverages as well.
