Free Spirited Wanderer Retreats



DSC_0160 copy (1).jpg

Free Spirited Wanderer Retreats have been created to provide a life-changing experience based on two main concepts;

1) To build Kula; intentional community, the feeling that life is best when shared.
2) The human desire to live a truly meaningful & fulfilling life. 

Each retreat brings these two concepts alive as we travel to exceptional locations around 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.

Founder of Free Spirited Wanderer;
Yoga & Wellness Retreats

DSC_1531 copy_edited.jpg

I am so happy you're here; it is my honor to welcome you into our FSW Retreat community. I have been a student of yoga for 12 years and have been teaching for 10 years. I have trained in Nepal, India, Colorado, North Carolina, and virtually. I started leading Yoga & Wellness Retreats in 2017 (when Free Spirited Wanderer was born) to share my love of travel, culture, community, wellness and yoga with others. As of June 2024, I have led 22 retreats to date; 11 within the U.S and 11 international, and have hosted 200+ participants. 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 walk with purpose and live with love. 


"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!"

  • What is included on an FSW Retreat?
    Each individual retreat page provides a detailed list of what is included. Every FSW Retreat will include accommodations for the entire retreat, all meals (unless otherwise noted), daily yoga classes and workshops, one excursion, a swag bag + workbook, and a virtual meet & greet + pre-retreat planning support.
  • What is NOT included on an FSW Retreat?
    Flights, travel insurance, passport or visa fees, ground transportation (unless otherwise noted), additional food or drinks, all alcohol, spa treatments, and additional excursions.
  • I am brand new to yoga, can I still join?
    Absolutely! My classes are all levels. I provide a variety of options from modifications to advanced variations. We also offer a variety of practices such as Vinyasa, Hatha, Astanga, Pranayama, Meditation, and more!
  • Do I have to participate in everything scheduled?
    I highly recommend that you do since it's what you signed up for :), however, this is YOUR retreat and I want you to spend it in a way that is the most nourishing for you.
  • How do I secure my desired accommodation?
    A $825 non-refundable deposit is due to secure your spot, with the exception of our Smoky Mtns Retreat, which is a $350 non-refundable deposit. After registration, you will be sent an invoice to your registered email with your final balance amount and due date.
  • Do most people sign up with a friend or come solo?
    It is always a combination of both! If you are nervous to come solo, know that there will be others and it's a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and make new friends!
  • If I come solo, do I need to book a private / single accommodation?
    If you would like privacy and time to yourself I recommend booking a private / single accommodation. If you prefer to share with other solo travelers, I do my best to pair participants up in the available shared rooms.
  • I am registering with another person. Do we both need to register and pay separately?
    A $825 non-refundable deposit is required per person, however, one person can register both of you. If you choose to register separately you can write the name of who you wish to room with in your registration form.
