Spring is (officially) two days away. And for many of us, it can’t come soon enough. Below are some healthy ways to start the season:

108 Sun Salutations. Celebrate spring with a special Spring Equinox class on March 20 from 1:30-3:30pm at Exhale in Atlanta, Georgia.  The two-hour yoga flow session will be a detoxifying and energizing marathon of Surya Namaskaras (Sun Salutations) set to amazing music (think reggae, world and hip hop). The workshop is $15 for exhale members and $20 for non-members.

A “Fresh Start” Spa Treatment. Try the “Fresh Start Renewal” Therapy (50 minutes, $149) at Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, and you’ll not only reap the rejuvenating benefits of a full-body exfoliation, stress-relieving Vichy shower, and more, but you’ll also be helping other women get their own fresh start. The spa will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from the treatment to the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, which helps women who are adjusting to a career changes, coping with difficult family relationships, or simply searching for opportunities for personal growth.

Free Classes at Lululemon. Pravassa, a healthy travel retreat company, is hosting a full week of free wellness-focused workshops at Lululemon Athletica Soho in New York City on March 21 to 26 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Classes include Gyrokinesis with Jennifer Day and Chantal Deeble of Kinespirit, Hatha Yoga with Michelle Barge of Golden Bridge Yoga, and Thai Massage with Kevin Courtney.
