Description

Yoga for Diabetes Workshop and Book Launch with International Yoga teacher Rachel Zinman

Whether you live with any type of Diabetes, have pre-diabetes are a caregiver to someone with diabetes or a yoga teacher wanting to know more about how you can support a person with diabetes in your class, you won’t want to miss this informative, motivating and life changing workshop.

International yoga teacher Rachel Zinman never thought it could happen to her. At the age of 42, nearly 25 years into her career as a yoga teacher and teacher trainer she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. At first she was devastated and sure there had been some mistake. Fighting her diagnosis she relied on the profound health benefits of yoga and ayurveda to help to preserve her insulin producing cells.

In this workshop Rachel will share about why Yoga is the perfect compliment to a daily diabetes management plan, what sorts of yoga styles are suited to the type of diabetes someone has, and the beauty of the healing science of Ayurveda and how knowing ones individual constitution can help manage diabetes.

Join Rachel and celebrate the launch of her beautiful new book with a yoga practice including; a simple breathing technique to melt away stress, a well rounded flowing easy sequence for every type of diabetes, and a calming yoga nidra.

The workshop will conclude with a short reading from Rachel’s new book, Yoga for Diabetes, How to Manage your Health with Yoga and Ayurveda and a book signing.

“So often the medical world treats diabetes, and all chronic disease, from a purely mechanistic, reductive framework, ignoring the complex reality of how disease affects body, mind and spirit. Rachel does a beautiful job of integrating western physiology, yoga and Ayurveda into a fluid practice that can be tailored to our individual needs.” Lisa Nelson MD – Director of Medical Education, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

$2 from each ticket sale will be donated to support a diabetes charity.
