Thanks for any ideas!
My understanding is that iyengar is lower intensity with lots of emphasis on alignment (which makes sense given you're doing it for leg problems... Let us know how it works!)
I do a vinyasa flow class twice a week (75 minutes, not super hard but breaks a sweat and leaves me a little sore the next day) and have one extra packet afterwards. It's also probably an hour or so after I eat breakfast. I don't find that I need any extra carbs. I'd try one extra packet ( maybe half before and ha
F after) and see how you feel with that. You might even try 2 extra since 2 hours is a lot.
