Mandukasana is ideal asana for people suffering from diabetes.

Preparations

Sit in vajrasana pose. Keep your back, neck and head in a straight line.

Steps

  • Place left palm covering your navel and place right palm on the left palm. Press your hands against your abdomen.
  • While exhaling, bend your head forwards trying to touch your forehead to the ground in front of you. In this position, your hands are pressing against your abdomen.
  • Hold this position as long as you can hold comfortably (ten to fifteen seconds in the beginning).
