If I must have something, I'll have a ripe banana, but prefer to be empty before yoga or Pilates.

Personally I find that I prefer early morning practices and usually go there on an empty stomach. Occasionally I feel a little hungry but by drinking water have no problem putting off eating. After class I'm usually not hungry right away.....after massaging those internal organs....emoticon

I find that a piece of fruit is a nice snack - never really thought of yogurt too!

I found these two sites about eating before and after, two points of views. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY the best advice I got. Hope it helps.

Thanks for these options. I have often gone to an early AM class without eating anything and been exhausted at the end of class. I know that my body needs 90-120 minutes after eating before a vigorous yoga class. I bet I could do the almonds of the Greek yogurt 45-60 min, before and maybe be OK.. I will be trying it soon.
Have you seen any articles about what to eat after?

One to two hours before your Yoga practice. See at the end of the article.

Six superb snacks to eat before yoga

The following foods are excellent to eat before yoga:

Almonds: They will help supply you with energy and keep you from becoming hungry during yoga.

Oatmeal: A small serving of oatmeal is just enough to get you through class. It isn't too heavy on your stomach, yet it is just enough to keep you energized.

Pears: They are low in acid, making them a perfect pick before participating in yoga. Additionally, pears are high in fiber, so they will allow you to be satisfied without making you feel too full while trying to achieve a workout.

Raisins: They contain natural sugar that is not processed to give you the vitality needed to perform yoga poses (asanas). Plus, they are easy to carry in your gym bag for an easy before or after workout snack.

Bananas: They contain a good source of potassium, and when potassium and sodium are combined dehydration is prevented.

Greek yogurt: This contains a natural sugar called lactose which will give you lasting energy throughout your yoga workout. In addition, many Greek yogurts have more protein and less sugar than regular yogurt.

It is important not to eat anything too heavy before performing yoga. Some recommend that YOU DO NOT EAT anything for ONE to TWO hours BEFORE hitting the MAT.

Pick your favorite pre-yoga food and get healthy from the inside out with the correct eating and yoga.
