Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self & the means required are dealt with on this site.

Yogi can take some light food, fruit or milk early in the morning if hungry, before or after Yogic practice as per his hunger/convenience. These are the tenets of Yoga. This is also advocated in Ayurveda as propounded by the self-realized God-Sage Dhanavantari. This applies to all ages and times. (That Supreme being is the absolute truth)

Experience
The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) that is the Lord for 'Mukti' (liberation) Mere indulgence in 'sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, sana, Prnyma, Pratyhra, Dhrana, Dhyna and Samdhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':-"Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "One who has completely surrendered to Brahman, overcome the Ego, and has realized himself to be a tool of the Almighty."
