Hi, I'm Carole,

yoga teacher, lifestyle coach, entrepreneur and the creator of Free Spirited Wanderer  & Authentic Feminine Mastermind. 

In High School, I knew that I was destined for an unconventional life rooted in travel, yoga & self exploration.

 I majored in Business to gain insight on how to become an entrepreneur.

 I studied abroad three times; business in Spain and Buddhist Philosophy in India & Cambodia to feed my adventurous, life-experience and knowledge seeking soul.

 I completed my Yoga Teacher Trainings in Nepal (200YTT, 2014) & India (300YTT, 2018) so I could completely immerse myself in the yogic culture, lifestyle and learn the roots. 

I started leading Yoga Retreats in 2017 through my business Free Spirited Wanderer. 

I didn’t become a yoga teacher so I could help others perfect their asana practice. I became a teacher so I could help them heal, feel awake, alive and activated and live a more fulfilling life.

As I started to become more in touch with this, reflecting back on my life and everything I overcame, I realized I had so much to offer that I wanted to share with other women.

*insert light bulb going off*

and Authentic Feminine Mastermind was born. This is a 12 week journey inwards towards pleasure, purpose, prosperity and freedom in order to live a more authentic and fulfilling life. It is taken in an intimate group setting or 1:1 via zoom and teachable.

This work has also inspired me to lead free Women's Empowerment Evenings via zoom once a month and Women's Retreats. These are both safe spaces where other women can feel seen, heard and understood. We connect with one another through discussion, sharing our hearts, yoga practices, meditations, intuitive dance and journaling exercises.

The result? Stepping into the woman you were always meant to become with clarity, courage, confidence, love and empowerment.
