Sculpt Escapes takes its clients on unique travel experiences.  With fitness classes and active adventures, these retreats will sculpt your mind and body.  Tracy Vogt and Sarah Grooters are two sisters with a vision to combine their inherent love for world travel with a healthy passion for outdoor adventure and fitness.  The Lake Tahoe retreat will make you feel the burn in all the right places, searing through whatever it is that could be holding you back from the strongest, healthiest and most focused version of yourself that you possibly can be.  Whether you are a fitness enthusiast or just beginning your health journey, all levels are welcome.


Ashley Aarti has been invited to teach two morning Yoga classes designed to complement the rest of your weekend's activities.  She is excited to share the knowledge she has obtained living and teaching in Lake Tahoe/Truckee, an environment that breeds athletes. When changing your lifestyle or inspiring your work outs, Yoga teaches discipline and focus, whilst taking care of the body through recovery, stretching and strength training. 


There will also be lots of free time to explore the surrounding woods, walk to Lake Tahoe, ride bikes, lounge by the pool, and schedule treatments at the on-site Lighthouse Spa
