Rachel Zinman was diagnosed with diabetes in 2008. It took six years for her to accept her diagnosis of type 1
LADA diabetes. She started yoga in high school when she was 17 and by the age of 19 she was hooked. Rachel is passionate about the deeper aspects of yoga and its ability to heal and inspire. She has spent the last 30 years practicing enthusiastically as well as teaching nationally (in Australia) and internationally since 1992. Rachel was a professional dancer from a young age and trained as a Waldorf educator teaching in both Australia and New York City.
- As a long time Australian resident and yoga teacher with a national reputation as an established senior yoga teacher Rachel trains teachers, offers, retreats workshops and mentor’s students one on one.
- 280 Australians develop diabetes every day. That’s one person every five minutes
- Around 1.7 million Australians have diabetes. This includes all types of diagnosed diabetes (1.2 million known and registered) as well as silent, undiagnosed type 2 diabetes (up to 500,000 estimated)
- More than 100,000 Australians have developed diabetes in the past year
- For every person diagnosed with diabetes there is usually a family member or carer who also ‘lives with diabetes’ every day in a support role. This means that an estimated 2.4 million Australians are affected by diabetes every day
