New mindfulness and yoga sessions for people with diabetes

During this period of social distancing and isolation, it’s very important that we look after both our physical and mental health as best we can. 

Donna Booth

We are introducing mindfulness and yoga via online video link this month.

These twice-weekly sessions will be run by Zen yoga and mindfulness teacher Donna Booth of Vitality Retreat, based in the far north of Scotland.    

You can join on Wednesdays at 6pm and Fridays at 3pm for the next four weeks via Zoom. 

Donna said:

Stress can affect your blood sugar levels. Mindfulness and yoga are one way to help lower stress levels. The yoga postures we’ll be doing in the sessions bring some easy, relaxing movements for the body. Mindfulness allows us to be in the present moment rather than worrying about the past or future which can make it easier to accept change and to make the adjustments necessary to feel well.”

Anyone who is interested in joining should email scotland@diabetes.org.uk to be invited to a group and given instructions on how to access Zoom. You do not need to register for a Zoom account.
