Helping you find your happy



Hiking Boots

Services We Offer

(More coming soon..)

Hiking Groups

Get some fresh air! We offer group hikes for both kids and adults.

There are so many reasons why spending time in nature is healthy. To name just a few: Nature can lower stress and blood pressure levels and increase Vitamin D, serotonin and endorphins! 

We are working hard to offer a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming.

Kids Connect Classes

Healthy Body + Healthy Mind = Happy Human!

Kids need emotional education in addition to physical!  Our class focuses on basic yoga stretches, breathing practices, and positive self-talk. We encourage the kids to share their feelings in a positive environment, and learn how to manage their emotions through these practices.

Artistic Wellness Classes for Kids

Practicing Art as a Therapeutic

Each class will vary as we will practice doing different arts and crafts each time. We always encourage positive self-talk and breathing techniques to instill healthy habits.

Giving Back

Food + Clothing Donations

We are always looking for new ways to give back to our community. We accept food or clothing donations for all of our "free" classes offered, and we are currently working on making more connections with other local efforts.


See "Kids Hiking" and "Kids Connect" tabs for more info on these programs!

Why We Do What We Do

     At S.M.I.L.E. Initiative we believe exercise, nutrition, and a healthy mindset are the pillars of optimal wellness. We started this company in order to provide comprehensive services that support and foster the overall wellness of our community while doing the things that we already love.

S.M.I.L.E. Initiative was newly founded this year as we recognize now more than ever the mental health crisis happening around the country.  47.6 million people or 1 in 5 adults suffer from mental illness each year in the U.S. alone.  Additionally, people with depression have a 40% higher risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases than the general population

We offer a variety of classes and services to help you improve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Whether you are experiencing distress or simply want to have fun while enhancing your physical and mental health, S.M.I.L.E. Initiative provides the resources to do so in a fun and friendly environment. 

Explore our site to learn more about what we do here, and experience what even a little activity and positivity can do for you!

​If you or someone you know is having a mental health emergency, go to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and start an online chat or call at 800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 immediately.




Community Outreach

Located in Martinsburg, WV, we recognize the need for a holistic wellness program in the eastern panhandle. The opioid crisis has hit too close to home and we want to do our part to assist the community effort. We offer programs to all ages and aim to especially help the at-risk youth in the community. We are hopeful that by providing healthy outlets for our community, we are enabling them with tools to create the best version of themselves, and initiate a brighter outlook on life.




"Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it" - Andy Rooney


Self-love is making your physical, mental, and emotional health a priority
