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.

Simply wonderful. This trip was the perfect combination of yoga, meditative reflection, and cultural exploration. The family at the Samadhi resort was incredibly warm and welcoming. All of the food was made with ingredients straight from their garden and every meal was delicious and perfectly portioned. The excursions were all accompanied by local guides who shared the fascinating history of the ruins we visited. Loren and Ryann both have such sweet nurturing spirits and are excellent yoga teachers. The classes provided a great balance of challenge and focused attention to the areas we needed. Loren and Ryan also worked to foster and strong bond of community within the group. Peru is stunning but it’s the friendships that truly make the experience great.

Lotus Retreats is an amazing organization! Loren answered all my questions prior to booking and the trip was super well-planned and communicated. Loren + Ryann are the best yoga instructors and ceremony facilitators! Knowing no-one prior to joining, they made me feel included and welcomed to the group from the very beginning. In addition, the sessions were thoughtfully planned and executed and the yoga was great! Both instructors provided modifications and hands-on adjustments throughout the classes. Overall, I would highly recommend Lotus Retreats to anyone looking to build connections, to deepen their yoga practice, or to travel to beautiful places with like-minded people.

I can't wait to book another one!!😍

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!
