Diabetes and Exercise
Yoga asanas stretch, twist and turn the lumbar and thoracic regions of our body, where the pancreas is located. This improves the production of insulin and lowers blood sugar.
Yoga also has a huge, positive impact on our parasympathetic nervous system. It reduces stress hormones, which are a major trigger for diabetes. When practiced well, yoga asanas massage the organs, improve blood supply and rejuvenate the cells.
