Yoga for the Rest of Us: Easy Yoga for Diabetes with Peggy Cappy

The statistics confirm it - the incidence of diabetes in the United States is on the rise. 30 million Americans are living with the disease and a staggering 86 million have been diagnosed with a pre-diabetic condition. A growing body of research suggests that yoga can be helpful for people living with diabetes and/or at risk for it, paired, of course, with the right diet. Dr. Lisa Nelson, co-author of Yoga and Diabetes, explains that the practice of yoga, even with the poses that are fundamentally done while seated, works through the stress reduction pathway, bringing down cortisol levels, which can help bring blood glucose levels into a more normal range. She also explains that yoga has been shown to help with balance, muscle strength, flexibility, and improving circulation.

In this new routine, Peggy Cappy demonstrates her signature yoga approach in a daily workout for people struggling with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Divided into seven separate instructional segments, the exercises can be done at home, all at once in just over an hour, or one segment at a time.

Review by Pat on 03/09/22 review stating yoga dvd
Tape shows 3 examples of the same yoga exercise so anyone is able to do this, even if you cant get on the floor, you are shown how to do it in a chair. Im very pleased with this.

Review by Sakura C. on 10/24/20 review stating Something I can do with my husband
My husband is type2 diabetes, and he refuses to do any exercises. He and I once practiced Yoga together, so this DVD is perfect for both of us. Peggys explanation is clear and easy to follow. She makes this practice very approachable. Thank you PBS and Peggy!
