5 Days of fasting ... or 7!


Fasting, diets or food raids, are means of prevention and purification that allow the body to get rid of its accumulated toxins, in order to regain great vitality and regenerate the body and mind.


They have been practiced for millennia by yogis!

But before living the Adventure, it is important to be well prepared. Here are a few recommendations:


A little food raid

A food descent is an opportunity to open a new relationship to the body, to the mind, becoming aware of all the inputs and how they come to stabilize us. 

This is the opportunity for a new energy autonomy, towards the Way of Satvika.

We will receive the physical benefits: skin, eyes, teeth, vitality, lightness.

It helps to adopt healthy eating, behavioural and lifestyle habits.

For a fast, the food descent is gentler than for a purge, which must then be very precise, adapted and well followed.

The 2 or 3 days before fasting, remove from your diet the strongest toxic foods such as coffee, sugars, alcohol and reduce your intake of animal proteins. 

During the fast

In this fast, I offer you one Juice per day, which you will discover in this blog.

The rest of the day, just keep going:

  • hydrate yourself
  • practice one session of gentle yoga a day with us online
  • take a leisurely stroll in beautiful nature with someone you love...
  • state your clear intention, as to the benefits and what you have decided to fast for.


In the Yogic tradition

Moisturize Well

In the Yogic tradition, fasting is Upavāsa , the way to get closer to the Divine: Ishwara.

He offers Tapasya, the asceticism that purifies and clarifies the mental tool, the psyche and the physical body.

Offer your fast to Ishwara, so that you may be preserved from any excess of glory or blame and gain the wisdom that already resides in you: Buddhi.

I love you guys. Om
