I have been “doing” yoga for the past 6 years. It is one of the most effective tools I have in achieving good blood sugar control. It helps for three reasons. First, it is a form of excercise and therefore burns glucose resulting in a reduction of insulin required. Second, it reduces stress especially because of the breathing excercises. And Third, it is an excellent metaphor for the task of balancing blood sugars. Yoga is all about balance and equanimity. So, as one participates in yoga one learns lessons that can be applied to balancing blood sugars.
