If you're an adventurer who loves to practice yoga and nourish your body and mind with new experiences, then Roaming Yogi retreats are for you!

Roaming Yogi Adventures was born in late 2016 out of a passion for connecting likeminded explorers to share life changing travel experiences together. 

We are yoga & meditation teachers based out of San Diego, and when we're not teaching, we're booking flights and discovering all corners of Mother Earth. We've made it our life's mission to explore our own true nature while seeking raw connection to source, and each other as human beings, all over the world. 

Our trips combine all elements of a classic yoga & wellness retreat while ticking off all the crazy locations on your Bucket List. Expect inspired daily yoga & meditation classes, healthy and fun meals, adrenaline filled days out in nature, and plenty of free time to explore your Bucket List destination your own way. 

Meet The Roaming Yogis

Kelly Collins

Born and raised in Southern California, Kelly has been practicing yoga since 2009. A former gymnast and cheerleader, Kelly became an NASM certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor in 2008 while getting her degree in Kinesiology at San Diego State University. After 5 years of practicing yoga on and off, Kelly decided to take a leap of faith and go to Bali to become a 200hr certified yoga instructor with the Awakened Life School of Yoga. While receiving her certification, Kelly drew a lot of inspiration from her teachers Gabrielle Whitewolf, Joe Miller, and Cristi Christensen. By immersing herself in yoga, Kelly had a major life shift and fell in love with the practice.

In her classes, Kelly uses her energetic presence and creativity to both challenge her students and leave them feeling rejuvenated. She strives to push her students to new lengths and show them that they are capable of anything, on and off the mat.

When Kelly isn't practicing yoga, teaching clients, or planning out bucket list retreats, she enjoys running around with her beloved furbaby Coco, going on adventures, and drinking a glass of wine. 


Alice Zarka

Born and raised in the midwest, Alice grew up playing about every sport available to her and seeking adventure anywhere and everywhere she could find it. While completing her Bachelor of Science in Journalism & Mass Communications, Alice was introduced to yoga in early 2009 and was most immediately drawn to the mindfulness that the practice encouraged both physically and mentally. 

In pursuit of adventure, sunshine, and the art of living, Alice moved to San Diego in 2014 and quickly enrolled in her 200 hr yoga teacher training in spring of 2015.

Through powerful vinyasa flow sequencing, Alice's classes focus on building awareness, confidence, trust and strength in the individual practitioner while holding space for community connection. Alice aims to empower students to believe that because they are alive, anything is possible.

In addition to organizing and leading Roaming Yogi retreats, Alice teaches at multiple premier studios in San Diego as well as manages a local studio. When she's not on the mat, you can find her at the beach most days, playing with her black lab Layla, reading, journaling, cooking, and traveling the world.
