Time Between Yoga Practice And Breakfast

Can I do yoga 30 minutes before taking breakfast?

Answer

What you mean to say is that can you eat 30 minutes after your yoga practice?

If you are doing yoga on empty stomach, then you may feel hungry after your yoga practice. Yes you can eat breakfast 30 minutes or so after you have finished your yoga practice of yoga asanas and pranayama. You can include the time spent in shavasana at the end of your yoga session also in these 30 minutes. For example, if you spend 10 minutes in shavasana after yoga practice, you can eat your breakfast after 20 minutes.

Practicing yoga takes a great deal of energy too. You have to give rest to the body after yoga practice to get the benefits. If you eat immediately after yoga practice, blood circulation is diverted for digestion of food.

Your body is the best judge. Observe your body and you can make your own judgment when to eat after doing yoga.

I personally recommend to rest for a while and enjoy the flow of prana within your body before eating.

It is highly desirable to eat only sattvik food after yoga as it is nutritious and easily digestible. You will feel fresh through out the day.

Hope this helps.

Namaste
