In a Yoga class, you should not take it in mind if you are not able to perform steps clearly because it is not a school where your teacher is hovering over your head if you have not done class exercise neatly. No two persons can do yoga in the same way because it depends on the flexibilities of their bodies. Some people are overweight, it is natural that they will not be able to do the steps as quickly as thin people do. Thin people have their own limitations.
You should just consider it as a spiritual exercise that connects your mind and body.

Not just Yoga, you should not go for any exercise or work with a full stomach because the biological phenomena are after taking a meal, most of the blood supply from the brain is rushed to stomach as a result former tries to go under rest till the blood supply is renewed to it. Yoga steps cannot be done with the sleepy mind. So it is best to do yoga with an empty stomach. In the case of extra hunger, you can eat toast or a fruit and take a full meal after the exercise.
