A motivational and personalised guide teaching diabetics how to incorporate Yoga and Ayurveda into their daily diabetes management plan.

Rachel Zinman, an internationally renowned yoga teacher and writer, was floored when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 42, despite her lifelong dedication to a healthy lifestyle which included a decades-long practice of yoga. In Yoga for Diabetes, Rachel shares her personal journey and her hard-won wisdom gained from her own experience of yoga and diabetes. Finally we have a book written by an accomplished yoga teacher with diabetes herself who points the way to regaining health and well-being for people of all ages and types of diabetes.

In Yoga for Diabetes, regardless of your current state of health, or type of diabetes, you can look forward to learning how to:

  • Reduce stress in minutes and thus improve your overall health index
  • Achieve healthier and more stable blood glucose levels
  • Find the secrets to adapting a yoga practice to suit your constitution and individual needs
  • Find deeper meaning in life and thus a holistic healing affecting multiple levels of your well-being

'If you are at all open or curious to learn about an ancient holistic way of healing and supporting the body, this book is for you. Zinman is clearly an expert and looks so glowingly healthy at 50 years old, one may wonder just how much benefit we too can get from incorporating some yoga into our lives.' — Diabetes Daily
