Ok so I tried a yoga DVD yesterday morning and I found that some positions gave me gas. Is this common . I could never go to a yoga class and get embarrassed by letting out a fart

Surely the most famous thing about yogais that it makes you fart? Will probably also make you need the loo, the compress/release action of many of the poses works the organs in that way. It's got to come out one way or another...

Everyone farts at yoga and Pilates!

It's very common. Have a coffee before you go to yoga class and evacuate your bowels. Also, have less complex carbs (pasta, bread, etc).

Yes, but it happens a bit less when you do yoga regularly.

Farting is normal and healthy so it should not hinder you from doing the things that you love. Go and enjoy your yoga sessions.

Do people actually just openly fart at group classes? I have to say I think I would find that a bit grim, especially if the room isn't well ventilated. Guess I've just found another excuse not to exceed use...

People don't fart at my yoga class.

Farts happen, to paraphrase grin

Since getting into yoga I think I fart less in general tbh, it helps my mental health and therefore my digestion is better, plus I feel motivated to be healthier in general so eat a much healthier diet.

I def avoid eating much before practice, if I must then something small like a nakd bar, go to the toilet before class as well.

Also the more I've got into yoga the less I care about how I look or what other people are doing in class. There's no embarrassment.

I've never farted in a yoga class even (and according to my family I am the 'chief farter' of the house!) and never heard anyone else fart either.

You think that's bad? I once did yoga a couple hours after breakfast with pineapple juice. Farted loudly and a sliver of poop came out, THANK GOD the kids were at school and DH was at work!

A sliver of poo!

Oh my god a sliver of poo

I've never heard anyone fart in yoga but there are often times when I have to consciously not fart, and that is all I am thinking about . And re: the comment about eating more healthily and therefore farting less, I think the reverse is true - 'healthy' eating involves fartacious foods like pulses, veg and fruit, while crisps and white bread aren't gonna make you fart!

I would be delighted if someone farted in my yoga class because I often think I am on the verge...
