Program

Wonderland Healing Center believes in your power to heal your own life. It is no secret that the ancient practices of yoga, meditation, detoxing, and fasting, underpinned by a balanced, plant-based diet are the foundations for remarkable health and vitality. Regardless of age, physical ability, or previous experience with yoga, the pace of this retreat allows those new to yoga to easily follow the teachings, while students with an existing yoga practice will find ample opportunity to deepen their understanding.

The journey you share with others in a yoga retreat bonds you like nothing else. Strangers become friends, inhibitions fall away, and you open yourself to sharing, learning with, and growing from other like-minded yogis and their life experience.

For those wishing to reset their health with a detox program, the unparalleled tranquility of Wonderland provides you with the space to journey inward, renew and refresh your body, mind, and spirit (In detox packages).

During Wonderland’s yoga retreat you can also enjoy harmonizing workshops, music, and events, philosophy lectures or even learn to practice Reiki healing. The diverse schedule is designed to heal and empower you towards a new, attuned beginning. Alternatively, if you desire a more personalized program, Wonderland offers private one-to-one yoga sessions with bespoke instruction, along with complementary holistic treatments. Our classes are taught by the most experienced international teachers on the island that will assist you in establishing a daily routine of health and wellness or to deepen your existing yoga practice. Those seeking emotional balance and inner harmony, or wanting to develop a lasting meditation or mindfulness practice, will also benefit from a twice-daily meditation schedule that starts at a beginner level and progresses to exploring some of the key Buddhist principles and teachings of self-compassion, impermanence, open-heartedness, and much more.

As a relaxing complement to your daily schedule, you can bask in the Thai herbal steam sauna or swim gentle laps in the swimming pool.

For those wanting a little more activity, there are several stunning waterfall hikes nearby, not to mention pristine, white sand beaches offering water sports or diving, and the majestic Khao Ra Mountain can be hiked from Wonderland’s backyard.
