What is Navaratri? It is 9 nights of purifying your inner spiritual nature.
This is an experience not to be missed by students who have never participated in this beautiful celebration through Havan (fire ceremony) through Yajna(offerings). The teachings say that the planetary alignment is so conducive to yogic practice, that one hour of yoga practice done in this time is equivalent to 100 hours performed at any other time. Body and mind undergo changes on account of changes in the cycles of nature.
Navaratri will be celebrated with daily Havan (fire ceremony) for the full duration of 10 days – yoga classes will run as normal and students are invited to participate in the fire ceremony.
