About this trip

Gather in Mexico for Lotus Retreat's 5th year retreat reunion with our community of friends & family! We're calling in a very special group of Lotus Retreats family for this 8-day and 7-night epic adventure into the coastal jungles of Mexico. 


Each day of the retreat will be spent practicing Yoga with our teachers offering a variety of styles, as well as daily meditations, breath work, journal prompts and workshops tailored to the theme of the day.


We will offer a variety of cultural immersions to fully experience the natural, cultural and spiritual beauty of the land! We've designed a very intimate itinerary of offerings to include nature treks, waterfalls, swimming with dolphins, surfing, traditional temezcal ceremony, and special fire ceremony to honor all the elements of life. 


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


AND ~ Expect lots of time to rest and play! You’ll be given the opportunity to participate in each class, workshop and cultural immersion designing the week however you'd like. The pool, beach cabanas and hammocks are always an available option for extended naps.

This Ojai retreat was beyond magical. I was welcomed by the most wonderful group of people and have memories that will last a lifetime..I mean hidden hot springs?! Yes please!! This is my second time booking with Lotus Retreats. Loren creates an amazing atmosphere so that we can all learn and share from each other while experiencing some beautiful places. I can't wait to book another one!!😍

I had a great time with wonderful people, accommodation, incredible scenery, fun excursion trips and excellent yoga classes. Our instructors were outstanding, very experienced and knowledgeable. Our group was small, but lovely.

This was one of the best experiences I've had in my life! Everything about this yoga retreat was so wonderful. Gitana del Mar was absolutely beautiful being right on the water and the staff was super accommodating that entire week. My private bungalow was super spacious and comfortable. All of the meals were incredible. What Loren put together with the yoga sessions, workshops, volunteering with a local elementary school, and all of the additional excursions were just unforgettable and such amazing experiences. It was also just so wonderful to meet so many incredible people. I highly recommend a going on a Lotus Retreat and I definitely hope to go on another one in the future! ~Kristin H.

There's nothing negative I could possibly say about this retreat experience!! This was my second time around with Loren & Lotus Retreats, and I definitely plan on coming back for more. Loren is an incredible retreat host and yoga instructor. After my first Lotus retreat to Cuba - and now to Colombia, I came back completely invigorated and inspired to further deepen my own yoga practice. Loren’s retreats are the perfect mix of yoga, meditation, dharma, relaxation, and cultural excursions. She provides a wide variety of activities, but there is never any pressure to do them all. Her retreat itineraries are designed in a way that allows for plenty of flexibility for whatever you’re hoping to get out of the experience. Also, the accommodations at Gitana del Mar are exceptional! From the food, to the service, to the private ocean views! I seriously have nothing negative to say at all! Much love, Jenn M

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!
