Located in the countryside about 80 kilometers north of Phnom Penh, the Farmhouse Smiling Gecko is surrounded by paddy fields and rolling hills. During a trip, you will have the opportunity to gain an insight into the structures of an innovative and holistic social project and the work they do on the ground.
You will meet the families who will show you the Smiling Gecko farm. You will visit the local school refurbished by Smiling Gecko and see for yourself the progress made in the long-term school project and the Sustainable Garment Production project, a textile factory that offers guaranteed fair wages and humane working conditions. From the Smiling Gecko Guesthouse, you can take a walk into the hills to visit the local Buddhist monastery and watch the monks during their morning prayer while enjoying a breathtaking sunrise.
Attractive leisure facilities, such as the new swimming pool, the yoga shala, the massage center, or a ride on the bamboo train also allow a longer, individually tailored stay an interesting and relaxing experience. By staying at the Farmhouse Smiling Gecko, all visitors support the sustainable Smiling Gecko cluster project and contribute to the success of the holistic approach.
In the fun and creative yoga classes which are suitable for all levels, Yogateacher.ch will guide you into the deeper dimensions of yoga asanas to build strength, detoxify the body, and promote optimal health and deep relaxation. Through meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), and other techniques, you will start to tune into your deeper wisdom.
What sets this yoga retreat apart from others is that between the morning and evening yoga sessions, you can have any amount of personalized yoga instruction or you can learn to give and receive Thai massage. You can also do AcroYoga or just any other yoga related activity as much as you like! Yoga unlimited! “Detox” means to focus on your health and well-being, to recharge your energy from the inside out. While nourishing your body and soul, you will also support a good cause.
Smiling Gecko is a Switzerland based organization that helps people from the worst slums in Cambodia by giving them a home to live and professional training. This means the people who cook for you, who provide room service for you, and the people who grow the organic food that you will eat have all been saved from a miserable life in poverty.
Smiling Gecko works with top-notch education providers in Switzerland, e.g. the Swiss Hotel Management Academy in Lucerne and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich to provide school education, professional training, and medical services to the poorest and enabling them to start a life and become economically self-sustaining. This means by participating in this retreat, you automatically support Smiling Gecko to fund their projects.
