A NOTE FROM CAROLE

THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO INDULGE!

Let's face it, most of us don't give ourselves permission to indulge. We are consumed by the day-to-day, and our joy becomes shrouded. 

Most of us relate indulging to something that must bring us guilt or shame; however, when done correctly, and with balance and moderation, it is an act of treating one's self with love. 

Life should be filled with pleasure, love and happiness. 

Life is meant to be enjoyed.

Therefore, that is exactly what we will do on this retreat.

We will relish in all that the Amalfi Coast has to offer; local cuisine, exquisite ambiance, never ending views, boutique shopping, an array of small towns, all with something unique to provide and cultural education.    

As for our FSW yoga practices; we will indulge our body, mind & soul in Asana, Meditation, Pranayama, Ayurveda and community.

Sit back, relax, and allow Free Spirited Wanderer to guide you towards living the sweet life. 

K A M A // PLEASURE

Did you know that KAMA (pleasure) is the first of Ayurveda's Four Desires?

That's right, according to the Vedas (ancient scripture of Ayurveda), there are four aims (or goals) of life, pleasure being the first. 

Why?

Because, without pleasure, what is life? Feeling good allows us to live a life of true fulfillment! Ayurveda teaches us how to approach pleasure with self-awareness, moderation and non-attachment. 

We will put all of this to work through Ayurvedic philosophy on creating routine, rituals, healthy habits and food as medicine. Everything you practice on the mat and in these workshops will provide you with the tools to take them into your daily life during this retreat and back home, allowing you to maximize this experience to its FULLEST.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Amalfi Coast | A dreamer's destination

The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. It’s a popular holiday destination, with sheer cliffs and a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento winds past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves.

As for the retreat center, it's a 12 bedroom villa, located in Marciano, just outside of Sorrento with breath taking views of Capri, Ishia, Procida, Gulf of Naples and Vesuvius. The center resides on sprawling grounds with several gardens, terraces and sitting areas as well as a pool overlooking the island of Capri.

 

It's the perfect place to embody 'la dolce vita'

THE FOOD

Amalfi Coast is a foodie's paradise.

The Amalfi Coast boasts a rich cuisine of seafood, pasture-raised meats and local produce. The crystalline waters and towering mountains that characterize the landscape are also the source of the ingredients in the local cuisine, where meat and fish, cheeses, cured meats and vegetables come together in delicious recipes.

Enjoy sumptuous pastas, authentic pizza and the most mouth-watering gelato known to human, Italy wins in all food departments, and there are some true specialities to be found in Naples and on the Amalfi Coast. Such as, Italian pastries, pizza, pastas, caprese salad, fishes & limoncello.

TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST RETREATS

What People Say

"This was a huge, scary commitment for me- with small children at home it seemed impossible to leave and to spend that amount of time and money on myself but I did it and I am so happy I did. It was such an amazing experience that I didn’t know I needed till I was there. Carole was absolutely wonderful!! She is such a beautiful soul, working with her was a delight. I would highly recommend taking a retreat with Carole, I can’t wait to go again."
