A little background

Recharge Escapes was founded by two sisters who have a passion for fitness, art, and travel. During the summer of 2015, they began conceptualizing a unique wellness retreat that would combine Sasha's art and Sonja's fitness teaching skills on the Greek Islands. They felt that creativity paired with fitness, culture, and R&R would be a perfect recipe to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. Their dream became a reality in June 2016 when they hosted their first retreat in Amorgos, Greece. Since then they have hosted multiple retreats multiple times in Greece, Costa Rica, Bali, and the Caribbean. Today Recharge Escapes caters to those who are looking to escape closer to home and for shorter durations, by hosting mini retreats and events in their back yard of sunny California.




I am so thrilled to share my passion for art in some of the most art-inspiring locations on the planet! As a practicing artist and art educator with 10 years of experience teaching art at the pre-K – adult level, I have seen the many ways that art can improve the life and general well-being of my students. I believe that when one approaches art making from an intuitive perspective, allowing one to let go and immerse in the experience of making, this keeps us in the present, and results in deep inner satisfaction and confidence while adding creative balance to our busy lives. My goal is to help you let go of your preconceptions regarding art making, whether you consider yourself an artist or not. I look forward to sharing a week of health and creativity with you very soon! sashalyth.com


Co- Founder/Fitness Expert

For as long as I can remember I've had a bit of the travel bug, along with a passion for fitness and creativity. To bring these elements together in stunning locations, and share it with wonderful people is a dream come true! I lived on Oahu for a decade where I received a degree in Kinesiology and first founded my fitness business. I'm a certified NASM personal trainer, Balanced Body Pilates instructor, IIN nutritional Health Coach, and Co-Owner/Creative Director of Next Phase Studios, Arlington VA. With 15 years of experience, my style of training bridges the gap between Pilates and functional training techniques. You will find these fusions in all of my classes, and I can't wait to share them with you in paradise! sonjalythfitness.com
