Longtime local yoga teacher Rachel Zinman was floored with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes nearly 25 years into her global yoga teaching career.

Owing to the type of diabetes she had and its slow onset, she went on a search to try to cure the incurable using yoga and Ayurveda as her guide.

She says it took her six years to accept the diagnosis. In spite of surrendering to traditional allopathic medicine, she still champions the benefits of yoga for managing all types of diabetes.

Her new book, Yoga for Diabetes, How to Manage your Health with Yoga and Ayurveda, launched in the US to critical acclaim.

Named finalist in Indie Publishing’s forward review book of the year, this book is an all-local production with photos by David Young and graphic design by artist Maraya Rodostianos.

The book offers life-changing practices and a groundbreaking approach to managing diabetes. Join Rachel at the Book Room at Byron, May 2 from 6pm.
