Join me in the Okavango at the Yoga LiLy tent for some free flow and flying during the music festival.
At the end of August, the annual music festival, Okavanga Delta Music Festival, will be held close to Maun. Myself, and another Yogi will be hosting and teaching at the Yoga Lily Tent. Yoga will be free for all festival goers. So it’s a double whammy, getting your Zen on, while jolling like the rockstar you are in your heart.
The proceeds of the festival will be going to uplifting a local community;
On the edge of the Delta, in Tsutsubega, lies an exquisite complex of tree-lined islands surrounded by floodplains. Tsutsubega is a San name meaning “Place of the Emerald Spotted Dove”, a sweet little bird which occurs in abundance here.
This little Eden is home to approximately 500 people of mostly the ancient Bayei tribe. After consulting the community in a traditional gathering called a Kgotla, the community has given permission for the Okavango Delta Music Festival organisers to host an annual, three-day festival on ‘Rockston Island’ in Tsutsubega in return for assisting them to alleviate poverty in a sustainable way.
The Festival will help the community of Tsutsubega derive direct economic benefit from environmental tourism through the campsites, employment at the festival and the Festival profits will provide them with a bore-hole for drinking water. Other community projects in the area that the Festival is also implementing including a literacy programme and stimulation centre, and also setting up ‘Feed a Child Botswana’ in the area to ensure the children in the community receive at least one nutritious meal a day.
