About this trip

Join Loren Lotus and Maria Friederichs of Lotus Retreats for a 6-day and 5-nigt Yoga Retreat at the Gitana Del Mar Beach Resort on the coast of the Sierra Nevadas de Santa Marta de Colombia!

THE EXPERIENCE:

The purpose of this Yoga retreat is to revive our creative fire and explore different Yogic practices to provide you with the tools to develop your own personal practice for self-realization through Asana (physical movement), meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), philosophy & education.  

Each day of the retreat will be focused on a different chakra of the body to develop an awareness of the chakra system and leave us cleansed and refreshed after the retreat! We will also offer afternoon activities for the group to bond, explore and see the beauty of Colombia!


This retreat offer an intimate space for our students to grow individually and as a group. We believe in the power of community with family style meals, partner yoga and beach cleanups. We also encourage self-study, silent walks and individual space for our students to connect with themselves. Along with Yoga and meditation, each day of the retreat will offer an excursion of some sort to the surrounding sacred waterfalls, native riverbeds, indigenous tribe towns and national parks.


Daily group excursions and jungle adventures to National Parks, Waterfalls and River Tubing are also offered, along with the option to explore individually. Our retreat will conclude with a Moon Ceremony and celebration on the beach.


There is something for everyone to gain from this retreat experience! Begin your Yoga practice, expand an existing practice, dive deep beneath the layers of the Chakra system, connect with like-minded individuals, build community and a spiritual sangha, explore the lush land of Colombia and create an unforgettable experience.

Lotus Retreats delivered yet another life-changing retreat, this time to the beautiful island of Cuba!! Loren and Ivanna led a spiritual and adventurous journey through old Havana & the beautiful Valle de Viñales. Yoga, salsa lessons, horseback riding, sunrise hikes, and sunset vintage car cruises from Havana back to our home at Mhai Yoga, this retreat has it all. The hospitality, healthy meals, and friendships made in Cuba will never be forgotten !
Amazing experience. Gitana del Mar is paradise! The grounds were beautiful, staff was attentive yet gave you space, property dogs were adorable and friendly. Loren and Maria were terrific instructors who varied the classes throughout the week to ensure a good balance of different yoga practices (yin, vinyasa, restorative, etc.) to make sure we were stimulated mentally and physically. Can't recommend working with Gitana del Mar or Lotus Retreats enough! Thank you for an amazing week in the heart of the world!

I had such a wonderful time! Gitana Del Mar was beautiful. I could not have asked for more! The excursions were memorable and exciting. And the food was amazing! The yoga classes were great and I liked the schedule as well.
It was an amazing experience, from the yoga instruction to the food provided by a very creative cooking staff. We did a number of fun field trips, including a day trip to Havana via 1950s convertibles, and a hike into the mountains above Vinales for a sunrise yoga session. The vibes in the group were very warm despite the fact that none of us had met each other beforehand; And the Cubans are fun loving, open and eager to talk to foreigners. All in all, it was eye-opening and inspiring.

I had the opportunity to deepen my practice / experience the beauty of Tulum Mexico with Lotus Retreats and would do it again in a heartbeat! The Lotus Retreats crew quickly created a space of loving community, increased awareness, and intentional practice within the first few hours of our retreat and it only got better from there! These retreats are special. Humanity in raw form. I'll be back for more, no doubt!
