No, you should not drink water while practicing Yoga. The reason for this is that while you practice Yoga you build up ushna in your body and by taking a sip of cold water all the heat and energy thus created goes down rapidly. 
Though ideally water should not be drunk during Yoga but some still go with the notion that if you are feeling too parched or dehydrated you can take just a sip of water but that too not at frequent intervals as the energy level that gets built comes down instantly with that water sip.
