Yoga for Diabetes


My mom is a type 2 diabetic. Yoga has helped me so much in life both physically and mentally, that I’m wondering if there is some sort of yoga for Diabetes? Is there anything you can suggest that I pass on to my mom? She is 45, about 30 pounds over weight, and lives a rather sedentary life.

Thank you so much!
