Yoga for Diabetes Cover8 large.jpg

For most of us who lived in NYC on September 11, 2001 a serious cloud of anxiety, questioning, and mental turmoil lingered for many years following those unimaginable events. Today’s guest believes the events of that day had, not only an emotional impact, but truly impacted her on a cellular level which set her body up for a breakdown that she could never have expected.

Rachel Zinman is a child of the world who has lived in Australia for much of her adult life. She is a yogi, a meditation teacher, an Ayurveda practitioner and someone who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as an adult. Lucky for me, Rachel and I were able to link up during her recent trip to the States on the east coast leg of her tour promoting her new book which is called “Yoga for Diabetes’. 

Our conversation covers a huge amount of ground with topics ranging from how Ayurveda relates to maintaining blood sugar control, all the way through through yoga and breathing techniques. I had an great time sitting down with Rachel and I learned so much from her in the short time we spent together. I know you’ll get a lot from this conversation as well.
