Art and Fitness Retreat Costa Rica, 15th - 20th February

Art and Fitness Retreat Costa Rica by Recharge Escapes, 15th – 20th February

Escape for 5 nights to beautiful Costa Rica! We will stay in the luxurious Casa Oceano Villa steps from the ocean on the stunning and pristine Nicoya Penninsula. On this ultimate escape, invigorating exercise will pair with jungle hikes, stress-reducing paint classes, gourmet meals, and of course relaxation in the sand in sun, making for an unforgettable, and much deserved retreat experience!

If you are a busy professional or stay at home parent, and are finding yourself stuck in the rat race of life with no YOU time, this is the perfect opportunity to press the pause button and do something that your body and soul deserves and needs! Our trips are not about engaging in a strict detox, non-stop “bootcamp” style workouts, or really anything extreme. You will find yourself in a serene, luxury location where you can choose whatever activities you need to recharge your batteries and feel rejuvenated. We will provide you with various fitness classes, art lessons, wine tasting, excursions, hiking, spa services, and of course relaxation time.

We can't wait to share these once in a lifetime experiences with you, and see your happy, glowing, recharged faces by the end!

Core Fusion – Strengthen, lengthen, and tone every inch of your body as we blend traditional Pilates movements with elements of barre, yoga, and other functional fitness exercises.

Super Circuit – Cardio meets strength in this circuit style sweat session. You’ll use the TRX, resistant bands, and body weight exercises that will leave you feeling challenged and renewed from the inside out!

Intuitive Drawing
Let go and let instinct take the reigns as you deepen your ability to observe, take creative risks, and enjoy the surprise. The goal is to put aside any preconceptions of art making in an effort to regain a sense of childlike playfulness and joy in the creative process.

Paint and Sip
Sit back with a glass of wine, and let your masterpiece unfold. You will be guided through each step of a painting, in a fun, social, and always enjoyable atmosphere.

Teachers

Sasha
Like many artists, I consider myself a visual storyteller. On one hand, I love capturing moments, expressions, and subtle gestures through figurative realism, while on the other hand I am inspired by the feelings and interpretations that can be created through color, texture, and abstraction. My work is thus both illustration as well as a window into the subconscious, and as I evolve as an artist, these two ideas seem to be converging more and more.

My passion stems from a constant desire to improve my technique while making sure to balance this with a healthy sense of experimentation and discovery. This inevitably results in a studio art practice that is both challenging and inspiring.

I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree with concentrations in Studio Art and Art Education, a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Art, and an MA in Education from Humboldt State University. I currently teach art and ceramics at Saint Bernard's Academy and serve on the Board of Directors for the Humboldt Arts Council. I am also the Co-Founder/Visual Artist for Recharge Escapes, LLC, a unique fitness and art travel company that hosts retreats around the globe. My work has been exhibited throughout Humboldt County and is in many private collections.

Sonja
I am passionate about preventative wellness and how creating a balanced and healthy lifestyle boosts confidence, enhances vitality, and contributes to the reduction of chronic disease. I founded my business in Hawaii, which was my home for 10 years, and have been fortunate enough to reestablish in DC. Over the last decade I’ve spent thousands of hours designing and implementing a broad range of individualized, group exercise, and nutritional programs.

My method of training bridges the gap between Pilates and functional training techniques. You will find these fusions in all of my classes and personalized fitness programs, and will always leave feeling like you got a unique and challenging workout! Nutrition and health coaching is also a huge part of the equation, and it is offered for every individualized program.

When people ask what type of workout will enable the best results, I tell them the key is variety. My own workouts include Pilates, Yoga, interval training, hiking and running. It never gets boring and I make sure my clients feel the same way. The key is creating a routine that is also fun for you…something that you will look forward to and truly make you happy!

What past guests have said

“Sonja and Sasha organized the trip of a lifetime to Greece this summer. I had an incredible time and will always cherish the memories I made in Santorini and Amorgos Island. I haven't been this relaxed in years! The schedule was fun and well balanced, the resorts were beautiful and the owners and staff treated us like family, and the group they assembled was so warm and friendly. I will go on another Recharge Escape in the future, and highly recommend them!”.

“I knew that after a week of Sonja's workouts, I was pretty much guaranteed to come home feeling stronger and healthier. As soon as we stepped foot onto Amorgos, I realized I was going to leave with so much more than I had anticipated. I couldn't have imagined a more ideal setting for a recharge retreat. It's impossible not to feel energized on the island. The art classes with Sasha reawakened a creativity I had long forgotten. Not only did I come home stronger, I came home more grounded and mindful. I can't wait until next year!”

“So many great moments, it is hard to pick one. I think the beauty of the venue was incredible. I was initially intimidated by the art classes, but was pleasantly surprised by how relaxing and fun they were! All around, this trip was unique and amazing!”

How to get here

SJO (Juan Santamaria International) is the airport to fly in to. From SJO we have arranged for a boat taxi to launch us on our unforgettable escape and transport us to the Villa. Guests will need to arrange their own charter flight or other transfer from Tambor back to SJO through Nature Air, and we can assist with those arrangements.
