In general, yoga is recommended to be done with at least 2 hours without eating. I'm going to implement a 1 or 1.5 hr session of yoga for one of my non-lifting days, and I'm going to go to do the classes fasted for about 13-14 hours and eat within and hour of finishing.
As I do heavy lifting 3 days a week (one of them being the day before yoga), is there any sense in taking BCAAs before/after yoga. THe yogas are not power/ashtanga yoga, but I may have access to hot yoga / bikram yoga classes (done in about 37 C / 100 F temperature room). Or will I do just fine with just having a big meal with plenty of protein after the class?
And plenty of water before and after, of course.
