This week we have Rachel Zinman on the podcast to talk about her experience with Type I Diabetes and how yoga has played a huge role in her life and disease management. Rachel has been a yoga teacher for over 20 years and has written the amazing book Yoga for Diabetes. She talks with us about how yoga can help in chronic illness management and in learning to live life with health issues.

Rachel shares how she works with chronic illness patients, how yoga IS for everyone, how to find the right type of yoga for you, and breaks down some of the ways in which yoga improves our immunity. We discuss how to make movement part of your routine when it feels hard as a chronic illness patient. Stay tuned for the end, where Rachel walks us through a live breathing technique that is incredibly calming and healing.
