NYE Reset Retreat / Loren Lotus and Carmina Rodriguez
December 27, 2023 - January 3, 2024
Experience the magical land of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala for a week retreat of yoga practices and Mayan culture surrounded by a vortex of volcanoes. Guatemala is a land of vibrant life, filled with lush vegetation and tectonic activity. “Atitlan” in Nahuatl means “the place where the rainbow gets its colors.” This mystical lake is often called the most beautiful in Central America and has inspired people for thousands for years.
Surrounded by a vortex of volcanoes, Lake Atitlan is known for its healing and mystical properties that seekers and believers feel upon arrival. The lake lies in the heart of an ancient volcano’s caldera, which filled with water after its final eruption 85,000 years ago. The lake and it’s three surrounding volcanoes still hold active tectonic power and people travel from around the world to feel the energy vortex created here at the intersection of Fuego de la Tierra and Paz del Lago.

Your host Loren Lotus has hosted over 25 retreats around the world with Lotus Retreats! She’s a passionate yogi, facilitator and event organizer who puts her entire heart and soul into curating spaces for community to gather. Loren will be sharing daily Yoga classes to get into our bodies, clear energy and make space for new wisdom to be shared. She is also an avid Kirtan singer and will be sharing the medicine of music, movement & meditation throughout the weekend.
Carmina radiates compassion into everything she does and is always leading from the heart. For her, the practice of Yoga became one of self-study- that in which steered her towards a deeper understanding of the physical body and in turn illuminated her connection with the mind, emotional body, and spirit.
Her classes are alignment based, formulated with intention, constructive sequencing, with an offering of hands on assists and space for self-inquiry. She weaves in pranayama, meditation, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and mantra accompanied with the harmonium in the practice. Her overall intention for her classes is to create a safe space for students to listen deeply to their bodies, hearts, and minds, through stillness, and discover a quality of intimacy with themselves and ultimately with the world around them.
She is eternally grateful to all of her teachers and mentors, and for all of the wisdom that was passed down to her. She completed her 200HR Teacher Training, at Daya Yoga Studio in 2016, in Brooklyn, New York, a 25HR Alignment and Therapeutics Training at Laughing Lotus, a 30HR Yin Yoga Training with Alana Kessler, Meridian Yoga Technique with Acupressure and Cupping with Rose Erin Vaughan, and has been attuned by Nicole Lynne Hooley, to Reiki 2.
She teaches Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative Yoga, Meditation, and offers group and private classes in Taos, New Mexico where she currently resides.
