About the Author

Rachel Zinman found out she had type 1 LADA diabetes in 2008, but it took six years for her to accept her diagnosis. Fortunately, she had discovered yoga in high school and has taught yoga in Australia and internationally since 1992, so she turned to yoga to find ways to heal her diabetes and inspire others. A published poet and author, award-winning musician, amateur filmmaker, and mother and partner, Rachel launched her Yoga for Diabetes blog to share with the diabetes online community how yoga has helped her manage her diabetes. Her articles on yoga and diabetes have appeared in Elephant Journal, Diabetes Daily, A Sweet Life, Insulin Nation, Unleash Your Inner Diabetes Dominator, and many other publications, and she is a featured expert for several online resources for yoga and diabetes.
