Lighten Your Body


The Navaratra fast is not just about doing without food, it’s a purification ritual, says Yogi Ashwini of Dhyan Ashram
During the navaratras or nine sacred nights, fasts are observed for purification as well, both ethereal and physical. Navaratras are observed twice a year and mark the transition in seasons, winter-summer and summer-winter. According to ayurveda, during this time, one should consume nourishing foods in minimal quantities to rid the body of toxins accumulated during the rains.
