YOGA HELPS CONTROL DIABETES

The Times of India is the latest source to mention how yoga can help control diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be caused by stress, diet and lack of fitness.  When you are stressed, your body secrets glucagon which increases glucose levels in the blood. Yoga poses, breathing practices and deep relaxation and meditation can help relax body and mind, increase fitness and improve the digestive system.

Shattered?

If you’ve been on your feet all day at work, shopped till you dropped or just need a pick-me-up, try viparita karani.
Can’t say it? You can do it!
Simply lie on your back and put your feet up a wall or over a chair seat. It’s so simple but so effective. The ultimate relaxing, restorative yoga pose that everyone can do. You’ll feel better in seconds. Especially your legs.
