asana and pranayama on a full stomach

Postby gerry456 » Fri Oct 30, 2015 2:59 am

Does it really matter? How long after a meal should we leave it?
2.19 They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

2.21 We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.

Yeah, it matters, especially if you eat heavily. And yeah, the answer to "how long" is learned by experience.

Basically, you shouldn't be hungry and shouldn't be stuffed. If you are doing deep breathing with full chest expansion, full diaphragm distension (pushing into the stomach area), etc., then a full stomach makes it literally impossible - there's no place to push.
