Can I practice yoga on a full stomach?

No. It is best to wait 2 hours after eating to practice yoga. You may have a light snack like a banana prior to doing yoga. However, rules are made to be broken and if the only time you are able to practice is after a meal and you feel ok after eating then I say go for it! In this video I talk about making your yoga work for you and your lifestyle. Yoga that fits you and your life is better than no yoga at all. Generally speaking it is recommended that you practice yoga first thing in the morning before breakfast, but that is not possible for everybody. Do what works best for you in your life. Make your yoga work for you. Don’t let fitting yoga in around your meals be your excuse.
