Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by chronic hyperglycemia due to relative insulin deficiency or resistance or both. 29.1 million people in the United States have diabetes, but 8.1 million may be undiagnosed and unaware of their condition. The successful management of diabetes revolves around an individually-tailored nutritional and lifestyle plan, regular Yoga exercise, breathing exercises and meditation. 

Make decisions with knowledge and confidence. Clients leave our workshops feeling empowered, knowing how to integrate their existing treatment plan with the healthy benefits of a Yoga lifestyle.

12:30–2:30pm Talk
