Past Trips


I am so grateful for Loren sharing her years of knowledge & experience with us in this wonderful online course. Her honest guidance & inspirational feedback has been so helpful along this journey. From templates, checklists, open-ended Q&A time, prompts for self reflection & gentle deadlines to encourage motivation, this training has you covered! I have now successfully hosted my own content creation retreat for photographers & creatives, since taking this course. & I am still finalizing plans on a future yoga retreat as well. Loren follows through with this course with support, encouragement, & guidance even long after the zoom calls end. This offering has definitely helped me to gain the confidence & knowledge needed to finally take the leap to sharing my own retreats. It was also great to meet other like-minded folks, who were all able to come together, brainstorm, & share ideas with one another.

I would highly recommend this training!! Loren is such a great space and wisdom holder for questions, insights, and anything that may come up around leading, planning, and coordinating a successful retreat. This training is perfect for you if you're wanting to gain deeper insight into what it looks like to host a retreat, how to plan and market a successful retreat, and are also wanting to connect with other like-minded individuals as well. Loren shares tips and what she has learned from her own experience leading retreats all around the world I found very helpful and valuable. Taking this training not only helped me to feel more confident in my abilities to plan, host, and lead retreats but I also got the opportunity to connect with others that are interested in doing similar things. Having this community felt very grounding for me and helped me to take the next step and get out of my comfort zone when it comes to my dream of hosting and leading retreats. Thank you Loren!

If you’ve been thinking about how amazing it would be to host your own yoga retreat/ workshops. I highly recommend this training. Loren is an amazing teacher. I really got a lot from this training. From how to pick the right retreat center for you to which website is best to use. All the little details to think about when hosting a retreat. I would also like to add that since taking this training Loren has been there to answer all my questions that I’ve had and to offer lots of encouragement. I feel very blessed to know her and to have had the opportunity to learn from her and to continue learning from her.

First and foremost, apologies for this super overdue review. I just realized that I haven't left a review for Loren Lotus, but periodically I have thought about this magical retreat I went on with Loren in 2018 to Colombia. Loren was very communicative about all the trip details beforehand, and planned very special programs; a small trip to the neighboring village with a local guide, interesting workshops with great guest teachers, etc. although she is an amazing instructor! The retreat venue was magical and was very accommodating about everyone's dietary restrictions. I spent possibly the best week of my life, and I am forever grateful for that experience. Highly recommend it if you are looking for something to nourish your mind, body, and heart. Thank you Loren. I hope you are doing well! Sending love.

I had an amazing experience in Colombia with Lotus Retreats in July 2023. Loren and Rachel are fantastic women who lead with love and light. They show so much care and respect towards each person's experience and offer each guest the opportunity to make their trip as busy or relaxed as they wish it to be. I highly recommend the excursions, as I got to experience more of Colombia and the history of its culture; however, they are optional, which is great on days when a guest would prefer some time spent in reflection. The daily yoga offerings were my favorite part, as they brought different styles of yoga, pranayama techniques, and sound healing into class. And finally, the freshly prepared, locally-sourced meals were INCREDIBLE. My body is still thanking me!

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!
