LIVLIFE BIGGER® UNPLUGGED

South Africa

May 19-26, 2019

A retreat for global changemakers to recharge body, mind and spirit.

You know that in order to serve most powerfully, time out for YOU is important. But there is just so much to do! ‘Next year’ you say.

 Then next year comes around and there’s even more important work that you’re needed for. Catch-22.

 

Introducing your hosts...

Caroline Zimba

QUEEN OF ALIGNMENT
& FOUNDER OF ZIMBA YOGA

Caroline originally hails from Zambia and is an international yoga instructor who brings 14 years of practice into her teachings to help people align physically, mentally and soulfully. Caroline delivers an empowering, challenging, mindful alignment focused practice with safe and firm hands-on adjustments to encourage good postural habits.

 

Caroline holds a foundation certificate from the British Wheel of Yoga having studied under Jane Farrimond. She completed her first 200hr teacher training course in Rishikesh, India in March 2014 at Himalayan Tapovanam. She has also trained with international Gurus Kamal Singh and Sunil Sharma at Tattvaa Yogashala receiving her 500hr Advanced Teacher certification in Ashtanga Vinyasa.

 

Apart from teaching in London, Caroline has taught in Singapore and also spent 7 months on the island of Siagao in the Philippines teaching an array of international students from across the globe.

She is excited to be heading back to Southern Africa to teach and share her learnings in May 2019!

Livon Yeow

TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP COACH, FACILITATOR, LIFE STRATEGIST, PERSONAL TRAINER & FOUNDER OF LIVLIFE BIGGER®

Livon is a born and bred Londoner who is happiest out in the Southern African bush and plains of Eastern Africa. She is passionate about African wildlife and keen to spend more time educating and raising awareness of conservation issues, in a way that benefits both local communities and future generations.

 

Much of Livon’s activities over the past year have been focused on exploring and implementing ideas in the personal development space with other conscious leaders. She believes greater collaboration is the way forwards. Many say ‘going it alone’ into entrepreneurship is lonely. That hasn’t been her experience at all – something that wasn’t always a case having grown up and worked in corporate environments as more of a lone wolf. In September 2017, she left a corporate career to pursue her passions and today she wakes up excited about life’s next adventure.

 

Livon is a qualified Transformational Coach and predominantly works with men in the Finance and Tech space at present, supporting them in living healthier, happier and more on-purpose lives. She is also a Level 3 certified Personal Trainer with a background in dance and continues to teach regular Orangetheory classes, a global science-backed Fitness brand.

 

She loves being able to work holistically with clients, combining mind, body and spirit. This retreat has been a dream for years and she is over the moon to now be able to combine and share all the things she loves in one of the most incredible spaces!

Welcome to LIVLIFE BIGGER® Unplugged – not your typical retreat. Unplugged is for those who are on a mission to transform the world we live in – whatever your industry; men and women who want to leave behind a legacy and create a more sustainable environment for future generations.

However we know what it can be like. At times the scale of what you’re out to achieve can feel overwhelming. You’re either concerned about the HOW, or you’re so immersed in detail that you start to operate in a bubble where you occasionally lose sight of the big picture. Or, something happens that moves things backwards three steps. At times you even forget WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.

It can also be a lonely journey, especially when not everyone around you ‘gets it’. Sometimes even if you do have a team around you. We created this retreat to give you the TIME and SPACE to CONNECT with:
– your body,
– your mind,
– your purpose,
– a tribe of other inspiring individuals
– the world around you

We know that you’re an adventurous bunch too however so any old retreat wouldn’t do. It had to be the best of the best. And for those who’ve never been on an African safari before, this is THE ONE. Time to leave that laptop at home and replace your phone with an old school camera. Remember those?!

Join a small group of incredible human beings to connect with yourself, with others, with nature and with the majesty of the animal kingdom in a 5* African Safari adventure.

We’re not just looking for anyone though!

 

THIS IS FOR YOU IF you’re someone who:

 

✔ Is great at being driven and ambitious, but less great at ‘taking it easy’

✔ Wants ‘more than just a holiday’

✔ Loves a good adventure and know you thrive out of your comfort zone

✔ LOVES FOOD

✔ Sees the value in building strong, supportive communities

✔ Enjoys learning from others and getting to know people from all walks of life – for this reason, we’d like you to jump in by yourself rather than with someone you know

✔ Is in good health and has an average level of fitness
(no previous yoga / mindfulness / meditation experience required)

✔ Has a healthy respect for wild animals and won’t go running off to get eaten by lions, or decide it’s a good idea to go swimming with hippos
(if the smell alone doesn’t put you off).

ABOUT SHAMWARI

Shamwari, which means “my friend” in Shona, stretches over 25,000 hectares in a malaria-free landscape. It offers an award-winning nature experience and is one of the largest private conservation initiatives in Southern Africa.

Safari activities at Shamwari include game drives, guided game walks and guided nature walks. On safari expect to see cheetah, rhino, elephant, hippo, lion, buffalo, leopard and a host of other exciting animals.

 

In addition there are three unique centres to visit:

 

The Shamwari rehabilitation centre is fully registered to provide veterinary care to young, abandoned, orphaned or injured animals.

 

The Dr Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre was created in conjunction with the Wilderness Foundation to highlight the devastating effects of rhino poaching in South Africa.

 

The Born Free Foundation,Animal Rescue and Education Centre was created to incorporate a museum and educational facility with the goal of creating awareness about the horrific way in which wildlife is exploited in captivity around the world.

 

Shamwari Game Reserve also has its own airstrip and several helipads.
