Hi, I'm Carole

Founder of Free Spirited Wanderer; Yoga & Wellness Retreats
+ Lifestyle Coaching.

My goal on all of my yoga retreats is to create an atmosphere where everyone feels safe to show up as their truest, most authentic selves.

I also value KULA; intentional community, the feeling that life is best when shared. I aim to bring people together where they can connect, share in transformational practices and build lifelong friendships. These are super sacred spaces with an opportunity for everyone to come together to support, uplift and empower each other. 

My prayer for you individually is that these retreats help prepare you for your lifetime, providing you with a space to get to know yourself on the deepest level possible so you can live your life so big, so beautiful and so bold. 

About this retreat:

This 7 night / 8 day yoga & wellness retreat is all about balancing out adventure, self-exploration and R&R for the perfect retreat experience.
 

We will feed our adventurous soul through excursions such as, surfing, canopy ziplining, waterfall hiking, ATV's and arm balance / inversion workshops that will encourage you to take a leap and have some fun. 

 

Self-exploration will be a theme through all yoga classes; where you will be given a space to dive deep within, pull back that layers and meet your true self. This part is never easy, but oh man, is it worth it!

 

As for the R&R, every class ends with a highly deserved savasana in order to integrate the practice - and let's not forget about the amazing onsite infinity pool, quiet grounds and nearby beach so you can unwind, decompress and allow your stress to dissipate as inner peace  takes over. 

The location alone provides the perfect place to balance all three of these. On top of that, Carole, is a fellow adventurer, self-exploration-er, and has learned after many years, how valuable rest truly is. 

Carole will guide you through this retreat from her own life-experience, deep studies & personal practice of yoga philosophy, Asana, Ayurveda and Lifestyle Coaching.

 

You will leave this retreat feeling LIMITLESS, EMPOWERED, JOYOUS, FREE and with a fresh outlook on your life. You will also develop a better understanding of how to take yoga off the mat and into your everyday in order to live with more meaning and fulfillment in alignment with your truest, most authentic self.

THREE THINGS YOU WILL GET OUT OF THIS RETREAT:

01

A newfound appreciation for rest, relaxation & and the ability to just 'be'; a deeper understanding that rest must be held equally in value to the amount that we "do" or "give" to ourselves and others for optimal health, wellness & success.

02

New insights on how to take yoga off the mat and into your daily life, enabling you to create a lifestyle that brings more health, happiness, meaning & fulfillment to your soul.

03

A trip of a lifetime; 7 nights in the Costa Rican jungle, also just steps from the beaches, excursions, plenty of time to 'try something new', gourmet meals, a variety of yoga classes & workshops, new lifelong friends - all created and planned for you! All you have to do is get yourself to Costa Rica, and come with an open mind, heart and be ready to receive the benefits that this retreat will reap, during your stay and many years to come.

Witness the epic views from Anamaya’s sky-high yoga decks. Our guests tell us that our yoga decks are the number one reason they came to Anamaya – to practice yoga overlooking our incredible views.

SALT WATER INFINITY POOL

Having a picture taken at our pool is so coveted by our guests, it’s become one of the most popular social media profile pictures. Our pool has also been featured in most of the press we’ve received over the years. It’s warm enough to swim in all year, and it sits on the corner of a bluff high above the ocean and jungle below

ANAMAYA SPA

Laura Klauser

Tulum Yoga & Wellness Retreat

 Amansala Resort | Tulum, Mexico | June 2022

The Tulum retreat was such an amazing experience all around. The resort was phenomenal and Carole’s classes were beautifully sequenced and themed to fit the vibe of the day. I loved everything about my time in Tulum and cannot wait to go back when Carole hopefully has another there!

 

I have three children and creating a time to escape was difficult but probably the best thing I have done to reconnect with myself. Meeting Carole and experiencing her amazing retreat was a trip I will cherish and I only wish I had done this sooner!

Garret Foster

True Nature 3.0 | Seven Springs Retreats | Smoky Mtns, TN | June 2022

Carole and I met in January 2022, and the level of knowledge, passion, and kindness she brings to the world of yoga is astounding. Trusting her beautiful soul to lead me on my first yoga retreat was a no brainer for me! I did not know what to expect, but I dove head first into the experience: immersing myself in the solitude of nature, connecting with new yogis, practicing new styles of yoga and meditation, you name it.

Carole knows how to deliver, and I cannot wait to take my next journey with her! So, what are you waiting for? Take that leap, and join her NOW!

💚💚💚

Carole is a wonderful retreat leader. This was my third retreat with Carole and it won't be my last. I enjoy not only the physical yoga practice but also the Ayurveda and sustainability education, the meditations and the breathing practices too.

 

Carole can make a yoga class delightful for everyone, from beginners to the most experienced. She is considerate of everyone and goes with the flow of the group and is very flexible to arrange the day based on how everyone is feeling.

 

This was my second year joining her at Seven Springs and I can't wait to go back next year!

Jenna Buehner

Empowered: Women's Retreat | Amansala Resort | Tulum, Mexico | June 2022

"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."

Nate Tinney

True Nature 3.0 | Seven Springs Retreats | Smoky Mtns, TN | June 2022

"Carole’s energy and presence is magic in and of itself, her knowledge of the body, mind and spirit is greatly appreciated. I bought my first tongue scraper after the retreat and also love how she explained that our evening rituals affect our morning ritual. One of my biggest takeaways and enjoyments was Carole’s core class.

 

I want to thank Carole for her openness, and opportunities to play in classes. I always feel like I can be open and myself in her presence. It is a quality of holding space for others that not everyone has and I am thankful to know Carole and have her in my life."

Cindy Boes

Empowered: Women's Retreat | Amansala Resort | Tulum, Mexico | June 2022

"Carole definitely over-delivered and lead this retreat from a place of experience and compassion. She is wise beyond her years and I always feel fully supported in her presence. Carole’s extensive training, knowledge and life experiences shine through in everything she teaches. Carole shows up for her students as a friend, an equal and a wise and humble teacher. Her authenticity inspires me to live my life from a place of acceptance and confidence too. Carole is a beautiful soul both inside and out and I don’t believe this retreat would have been as meaningful for me if it weren’t for her. I plan on implementing many of the practices she taught us and am excited to see where the next chapter of my life takes me."

GARUDA'S NEST

Double Occupancy: $2795 per person
**ONE SPOT LEFT FOR SOLO WOMAN TRAVELER

We like to call this room the Sky Cabin, but some of our guests call it the Tree House. Whatever you would prefer to call it, Garuda’s Nest is one of our more popular rooms.


This tower has the best views on the property! Because it’s so high it does sway slightly in the wind, so if you are afraid of heights this might not be the cabin for you. This room is for our more adventurous guests. 


This room is perfect for 2 – 3 people. On the lower level you have the option of 2 single beds or one King sized bed, and in the upper loft is one Queen sized bed. 

Below the main cabin, halfway up the tower is your very own private deck and lookout for you to practice yoga, read a book or take an afternoon nap in one of the hammocks. This room is truly epic!

JUNGLE

Double Occupancy: $2695/PP

The Jungle room is a huge favorite at Anamaya because it is unlike any other room. What is unique about this room is that it is built into the jungle canopy. This is the only room that doesn’t have an ocean view, but the view from this room is epic!

 

The design and lighting in this room is stunning, with your very own open air shower and balcony. This room has two twin beds, surrounded by 3 walls of glass making you feel completely connected to nature. The windows and sliding doors can be opened for a natural refreshing breeze, but like all our rooms there is air conditioning and a ceiling fan.

 

There is also a beautiful outdoor shower, making it even more fun! Our guests have seen monkeys, anteaters, toucans, and may other tropical animals in the canopy… that’s why we call it the Jungle room.

HANUMAN

Triple Occupancy: $2495 per person

Hanuman is named after the monkeys we often see in the canopy surrounding Anamaya. This room (like all our rooms) has an epic view that you can also enjoy from the beautifully designed open air bathroom. 

 

This room sleeps 3 people and is one of our guests favs because of the uniquely designed queen sized bed built into its own special niche. It is very goddess like. 

 

Hanuman is ideal for 2 friends with who will have their own luxurious beds (the built in queen and a king sized bed)… or for three friends with two single beds instead of the king sized…or it’s also perfect for a family.

 

Like all of our rooms it has air conditioning and a ceiling fan, and a beautiful private deck to take in the view, enjoy the hammock or read one of your favorite books.

ANAHATA

Triple Occupancy: $2395 per person
Double Occupancy: $2795 per person

This room accommodates 3 people with  3 adult sized single beds or two people with a king bed. 

This room is called Anahata after the heart chakra partially because it’s in the heart of Anamaya on the second level of the main house.  It has a gorgeous private balcony overlooking our epic ocean view. The room also has vaulted ceilings, a ton of closet space and a large bathroom.

Like all of our rooms, there are ceilings fans and air conditioning, but the room is very well insulated so our guests find they don’t need to use the AC very much.

GAIA HOUSE

Quintuple Occupancy: $2295/PP
**2 SPOTS OPEN
women only

The Gaia house is perfect for our solo travelers or 5 friends! Or maybe 2 friends who want to connect with other travelers from around the world (true retreat style!). 


There are 3 single beds on the lower level, and 2 loft areas with a single bed in each loft. There are 2 bathrooms each with a toilet and a sink, and 2 open air showers with curtains for added privacy. Many of our guests have told us they LOVE the open air showers so they can look out over the jungle and the ocean… something they definitely can’t experience from home.


The view from Gaia is breathtaking and there is a lot of light that floods the space. It is a modern but rustic space, and a favorite amongst our Yoga Teacher Training students.

THE CASITA

Quintuple Occupancy: $1995 per person

Casita used to be a small house on the property before Anamaya was built. It is now a large and lovely home for solo travelers, 5 friends, or anyone traveling on a budget. We have something for everyone in terms of affordability.

There is a large deck with hammocks and a seating area overlooking the ocean and the jungle, and it is well designed with high ceilings with a lot of natural light and airflow.

We call the Casita a dorm style room because it is a shared space, but this is unlike any dorm you’ve seen. It is surrounded by organic herb and vegetable gardens, and has two bathrooms – including a very large garden bathroom and shower that our guests rave about and will often use it to take showers in the rain!

The Casita is the first structure that was built on this property so it is set apart from our other cabinas, offering a lot of space and privacy.

GANESH

Private Occupancy: $3395

**SOLD OUT

This room is a favorite with visiting couples and solo travelers. It’s cozy and private, with incredible south-facing views of the ocean and southern Nicoya peninsula.

 

Ganesh has a queen sized bed, and is unique because it has a view of both the sunrise and the sunset… as well as a distant visa of Cabo Blanco national park, located at the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. On a rare day, you might be able to see a rainbow down inside the valley, coming from a waterfall that’s hidden in there.

 

The room has air conditioning, a ceiling fan, and a small desk with a gorgeous ocean view. There is also a deck above with a hammock offering a gorgeous view of the peninsula. Some of our guests have seen whales or dolphins in the ocean below in front of the Rio Montezuma river mouth.

BALI CABINA

Double Occupancy: $2795/PP
**SOLD OUT

The Bali Cabina is probably one of the most popular rooms at Anamaya. It was designed in Bali, then disassembled, shipped to Costa Rica, and re-assembled here. This room has a spectacular garden bathroom and deck overlooking the ocean.

This room is perfect for couples, solo travelers, or two good friends. There can be two single beds or one King sized bed in this room.

The Bali house is a very exotic room and has three walls of glass with large curtains for privacy.

From this room you can see the mainland of Costa Rica, all the way down to Jaco and Quepos. On a lucky day you may see dolphins or whales playing in the water, and most of the time you can hear the Montezuma Falls off in the distance. 

The outdoor tropical bathrooms are a big hit here at Anamaya, and the Bali Cabina is one of the largest garden bathrooms. It is one of only two rooms that has a bathtub, and from the tub or shower you are treated to a breathtaking view through a unique round window.

ANANDA

Double Occupancy: $2695/PP

**SOLD OUT

Ananda is a favorite amongst couples.

The views from all our rooms are spectacular, but from Ananda they are even more breathtaking. This bright and spacious cabina has many windows to let in maximum light and airflow. All our rooms have air conditioning, but it’s really not needed in Ananda because of the excellent eco-friendly design. 

One of the key features of this room is
