Asanas for diabetes

Paschimotasana

Paschimotasana is a sitting asana also referred to as the 'forward seated bend'. This asana is good for those suffering from diabetes. It is known to stimulate the functioning of the internal organs like liver, pancreas and kidney.

Steps

  1. Sit on a yoga mat in a comfortable position with legs outstretched in front.

  2. Bend your head to touch your knees and exhale completely.

  3. Grasp the toes with your fingers. Maintain this position for a few breaths and inhale when you return to the original position.

  4. Repeat this asana 2-3 times.
