Why are you supposed to refrain from eating before class?

Yoga is practiced best on an empty stomach. Ideally not eating at least 4 hours before class. In class we twist from side to side, turn upside down, and bend forward and backward. If your last meal is still digesting while you practice this will not feel comfortable and you will not get as deep into your poses. Fruit on an empty stomach before class is okay if you feel the need to eat as it will digest very fast.
