Goal Of New San Diego Company: Wellness Workshops At Affordable Price

In her journey to become healthier, Blake Faris quit smoking and lost nearly 100 pounds.

"I found myself reaching for comfort foods and comfort habits that were not serving me," Faris said.

Faris said she switched to a plant-based diet, incorporated yoga into her daily routine and used essential oils for their calming properties.

Her own wellness journey led to an idea for a new company in San Diego — RECHARGE Events.

"I was drawn to bringing accessible and inclusive events to the community that would provide skills and sort of new ways of taking care of yourself in an affordable way," she said.

The company is holding its launch event Sunday from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Point, which is located at 1010 Santa Clara Place in San Diego. The launch event will include a cooking demonstration, essential oil demonstration, bath bomb workshop and a candle making craft. Tickets to the event are $30. They can be purchased at

Faris and Marina Yanay-Triner, who will be leading the cooking demonstration, will join Midday Edition Thursday to discuss what they hope their company will provide to the San Diego community.
