Carole Frey
Yoga Teacher, Lifestyle Coach & Retreat Coordinator 

In High School, I knew that I was destined for an unconventional life rooted in travel, yoga & self exploration. I majored in Business Management from Castleton University to gain insight on how to become an entrepreneur.  I studied abroad three times; Business at the University of Salamanca, 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.

In 2017, I started leading yoga & wellness retreats so I could share my love of travel, culture, community, health and yoga with others.  In 2020, I stepped into the coaching world, investing in multiple business & life coaches so I could blend my yoga teachings with coaching and create my own lifestyle program; helping others to take yoga off the mat and live their most meaningful, fulfilling and authentic lives.

This work has also inspired me to lead Women’s Retreats, and create safe spaces for them to 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 destined to become with clarity, courage, confidence, love and empowerment. 

Join me for a Yoga & Wellness Retreat, 1:1 Lifestyle Coaching, or Yoga Teacher Mentorship.
