The focus of the program is to achieve a higher level of consciousness and wellbeing by combining fasting, yoga, and holistic classes. It is designed to provide time and space to relax, detox, reconnect, and experience the beauty of Koh Phangan in an intimate, safe, and nourishing environment.

Yoga is an open-source, customizable, and innovative creative practice with many forms, shapes, and colors. Smiley Retreat likes to see it as a great methodology for controlling emotions, calming the mind, and getting closer to your true self, as well as having a multitude of physical benefits and being awesome.

Strengthen the body through five days of coconut water and 1 green juice fasting. Fall in love with yourself a little more! Heal and repair the gut, boost the immune system, lose some fat, let your inner glow shine, and gain a more positive outlook on life. Let go of worries, stress, and negative emotions, leave with a calmer mind and a bigger soul.
