We’ve talked about yoga a bit on the resource thread Yoga Helps Me Stay Fit and although I haven’t actually tried yoga yet I’m still very interested. (It’s just that I’m a major procrastinator.) In any case, I came across this post on Diabetes Daily about yoga positions for diabetes.
I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical. Not of yoga, but my thought was that yoga is the same for everyone, with or without diabetes. However, this piece recommends some poses that can help increase insulin sensitivity and reduce stress. Both of which really would help me better manage my diabetes.
Have a read, watch the instruction video at the end, and let me know what you think? I’m excited to try these exercises and I love that she gave variations on the poses so I can find the most comfortable way for me.
