  • In addition we can practice Machendra Asana, Garuda Asana, Mayur Asana and Sarvanga Anga Asana. You are sure to get away from Diabetic condition. But, all these to be learned systematically from a Yoga siddha guru in a process by which we will be in a position to do.

    Undoubtedly we need the blessings of GOD to do this regularly even if you know these Asanas. Best wishes.
