Ayurvedic yoga instructor Mary Bruck, owner of Be Well Yoga and Ayurveda, in Wauwatosa, has designed three workshops to help realign ourselves to efficiently transition through the seasons without 
sluggishness or other unwanted side effects. Participants will learn simple techniques to return to health and vibrancy.

The first workshop, Energizing and Sleep Enhancing Routines, will run from 11 a.m. to noon, March 1. The second, Yoga: Shake the Lead Out, will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., March 8. The third, Cleansing the Body Ayurvedically, is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., March 15.

“This is the time of year when living in Wisconsin becomes very difficult. We are ready for winter to be completely done by March, and yet it typically lingers until the end of April. We might feel sluggish, lethargic, heavy and maybe a little depressed,” explains Bruck, who is a certified ayurvedic health practitioner and panchakarma technician. “There are things that we can do to combat these feelings and start to feel lighter, brighter and more energized. There are routines for the morning and nighttime that help us align our internal clock with nature,” she advises.

Cost: Mar. 1 workshop, free; Mar. 8 workshop, $15; Mar. 15 workshop, $20. Location: 10701 W. North Ave., Ste. 209, Wauwatosa. For more information, call 414-939-3554, email [email protected] or visit
