with Senior Yoga Teacher Rachel Zinman
With someone being diagnosed with either type 1, type 2, gestational or pre-diabetes every day it’s more than likely that as a yoga teacher you will have someone with this condition in your yoga class. Having a deeper understanding of the different types of diabetes and how yoga and Ayurveda can help is a wonderful addition to your teaching toolkit.

In this workshop you will learn:
  • What it means to live with diabetes
  • About the different types of diabetes
  • How Ayurveda has been treating diabetes for the last 5,000 years
  • How to determine what sort of practice will support your student who lives with diabetes
  • What to expect when you have someone living with diabetes in your class ( i.e diabetes medications and contraindications, diabetes devices like CGM’S and pumps etc)
  • The benefits of yoga for all types of Diabetes"
