For those struggling with diabetes, the right posture, sitting posture and breathing exercises (breathing exercises) can be called the best yoga for beginners. Asanas associated with yoga are especially beneficial for the pancreas. This improves blood flow and its circulation in the pancreas and improves the ability of the body’s cells to produce insulin.

How can yoga benefit people with diabetes?

Also, due to the comfort of the body from various asanas, the pancreas (pancreas) helps in spreading. This stimulates insulin-making beta cells and also makes it easier to balance weight.
