Free Spirited Wanderer Retreats have been created to provide an experience based off two main concepts;
1) To build Kula; intentional community, the feeling that life is best when shared.
2) The human desire we feel to live a truly meaningful & fulfilling life.
Each retreat brings these two concepts alive as we travel to exceptional places within the world and move through a variety of yoga classes, workshops and excursions, providing you with the self-exploration, adventure, connection and freedom your heart & soul seeks.
**CEU's available for yoga teachers on all retreats.
HI, I'M CAROLE
Yoga Teacher, Lifestyle Coach, Retreat Leader, and the Founder of Free Spirited Wanderer.
In High School, I knew that I was destined for an unconventional life rooted in travel, yoga, and 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 have completed two 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings (Rishikul Yogshala; Nepal 2014 & Y2 Yoga; Charlotte, NC 2022), one 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training (Rishikul Yogshala; India, 2018), two trainings with Para Yoga (Marma & Four Desires), a year long Ashtanga Yoga Apprenticeship with AYS and countless immersions and workshops, all to deepen my skills as a student and teacher.
I started leading Yoga & Wellness Retreats in 2017 to share my love of travel, culture, community, health and yoga with others. My mission as a yoga teacher is to help more people take yoga off the mat and live it as it was intended, a lifestyle. My prayer for you is that these retreats help prepare you for your lifetime; providing you with a space to become the fullest expression of yourself so you can live a BIG life with meaning and fulfillment.

"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! 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!"
