Yoga Benefits on Diabetes
Most people are introduced to yoga through the postures, called asanas. The gentle stretches and slow, steady movements in yoga help you relax and become more aware of what's happening in your body and mind. Yoga is not a competitive sport; participants are encouraged to move at their own pace.
Research has shown that the stretching, relaxation, and meditation in yoga can result in many health benefits, including:
improved control of blood glucose levels
reduced high blood pressure
relief from headaches and asthma
reduced lower back pain
lower incidence of depression
