by Annie B. Kay, MS, RDN, RYT, and Lisa B. Nelson, M.D. — 

Yoga does more than manage stress. It can calm the nervous system, improve circulation, increase muscle tone, improve balance and, like other forms of physical activity, increase insulin sensitivity and improve glycemic control.

Research also suggests that yoga can help you become more sensitive to the mind-body connection and therefore be more mindful of self-care. This book is an accessible guide for anyone with diabetes who wants to begin or deepen a yoga practice.

It provides tailored guidance to those with type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes. Dozens of photos demonstrate specific yoga poses for the new and seasoned yoga practitioner.

Sample practice plans and lifestyle tips illustrate how yoga can help enhance diabetes self-care.

Whether you are a yoga pro or just interested in trying it out, the authors provide a yoga practice that will work for you and your diabetes.

This spiral-bound book makes it useful in your practice.
