Instant, Temporary, Hunger

I had something happen I have not run into before.

I was doing my yoga and I felt fine and was not at all hungry and then all of a sudden when I stood in mountain with 3 moves to go in my practice I got hunger pains and was all of a sudden ravenous. I was not at all hungry when I started nor was I hungry for the first 30 minutes of my practice. It hit me all at once and it went right to hunger pains. I finished and went to get something to eat but before I got there I realized I was no longer all that hungry.

Can anyone shed some light on what the heck happened?

Sounds like a temporary increase of agni, the fire of digestion. Did you perform a pelvis lock, mula bandha with mountain pose ? It might involunatrily happen. On the other hand, it might be something else, this is just a thought.

As far as I know I just went to Staff pose and as far as I know I did not perform a pelvis lock or mula bandha. But then I do not actually know what a pelvis lock or mula bandha is so it is possible that I may have.

Anyway, I don't think it is too much of a problem.

Just keep moving forward.
