The Okavango Delta is a vast floodplain. Its waters ebb and flow with the seasons. The waters of the delta are gentle and flowing, calm and still. Yoga is a practice which is encompasses flow. The flow of the breath, energy and the movement of the body, all connected as one. The bringing together of yoga and an environment such as the Okavango Delta, allows your practice to reach new heights of resonance, unifying you with wilderness in a deeper and more authentic way.
Join us for this unmissable Yoga Safari through the Okavango and Chobe with yoga instructor Susie Wonfor.
Yoga Instructor – Susie Wonfor
My yogic life began in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania when I started to practice yoga at the Buddhist Centre there, around 12 years ago. I connected with the practice quite quickly and found myself wanting to know more and explore what yoga meant to me. Over time I developed a home practice, a vital part of any yoga journey. Then yoginis came to my home, where I hosted a weekly yoga class for over three years, with wonderful Dar es Salaam based teacher Satya.
In 2012 I headed back to the UK. I knew that I had to take advantage of the opportunity to train as a teacher. So after three years of intense study with the finest yoga school in the United Kingdom, the British Wheel of Yoga, I am now fully qualified. My qualification is the highest awarded for yoga teaching in the UK.
I feel blessed to share my knowledge. But I also continue to learn in abundance through my own practice, through my students and classes. Constantly reminded just how extraordinary and important yoga is for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self. The whole Self.
I have two soul connected passions, one is yoga the other is the African wilderness. Having lived for 13 years in southern and east Africa, I consider her my motherland. Through personal experience, I also see the incredible value of practising yoga in the wilderness. The energies of unspoiled, natural environments allow us as human beings to truly connect with the sense that all is one. Bringing us a great sense of power and peace. There is nowhere better to experience this than in nature. There is nowhere better to experience this than in the African wilderness.
