About Yoga Instructor - Deborah Carter

Deborah has been a qualified Yoga Teacher since 2001 and has practiced Yoga since 1996.  She is accredited with Yoga Alliance and the National Association Of Certified Yoga Teachers in USA.  She is as passionate about Yoga as she is about taking people on safari and sharing her knowledge of the flora and fauna of the African bush with her guests. She enjoys sharing Yoga with people from all walks of life. She has a great sense of humor, which helps make her Yoga classes fun and light-hearted.

Deborah also accompanies groups on trips to view total solar eclipses in amazing locations around the world. She has been addicted to seeing them since she witnessed her first total solar eclipse in 2001 in Zambia.

She believes strongly that your thoughts shape your life, that what you focus on is what you get, so focus on the positives in your life and you’ll get more of them! Let go of the small stuff, it's all small stuff!

About Astronomer - Stephen James O'Meara

Stephen, or Steve as he is known, is passionate about the stars, and has been studying them since he was 6 years of age, when his parents bought him his first telescope. To this day he continues to enjoy observing the night sky through binoculars, naked eye, with his camera and telescope, and he's forever in search of something new out there, and is happy to share his findings with you. He has written over a dozen books on astronomy and has been honoured with several awards. Among Stephen’s many globally recognized achievements, he was the first to sight Halley’s Comet on its 1985 return. He loves sharing his knowledge with people and showing them the wonders that are to be found in the night sky.
