NURTURING WELLNESS THROUGH NATURE'S EMBRACE

Welcome to Victoria Falls Yoga, where the transformative power of yoga meets the enchanting beauty of the African bush. Our journey began with Kerri O’Fee, the passionate founder, who found solace and self-discovery amidst the wilderness of Victoria Falls. Her profound experiences led to the birth of Victoria Falls Yoga, with a vision to create safe spaces immersed in nature—reconnecting individuals with their most authentic selves while uplifting global well-being.

A HAVEN IN NATURE: OUR FOUNDER'S STORY

Kerri's story is one of courage and transformation. When she arrived in Victoria Falls, she found herself at a crossroads—questioning who she truly was and the path she wished to follow. The African bush became her haven, offering solace amidst life's challenges and a space for self-reconnection. Embraced by nature's healing embrace, Kerri embarked on a journey of self-discovery, mindfulness, and wellness in the wild.

โ€‹

Based on her experience, and guided by her passion for health, wellness, and happiness, Kerri created her personal brand—an endorsement of well-being and yoga's practice in natures most pristine settings.

โ€‹

From this evolution of self, supported by an academic background in psychology, industrial psychology, yoga, mindfulness, and wellness management, the idea for Victoria Falls Yoga grew. Through creating tranquil spaces for solace, reflection, and exploration, Kerri is here to guide others through a reconnection with themselves and their wellness whilst enjoying the remarkable beauty of African landscapes and wildlife.

ABOUT OUR LOGO: THE NDORO

TRANSFORMING HOLISTIC WELLBEING - HELPING PEOPLE TO HARNESS THE WEALTH OF FOSTERING GOOD HEALTH

As a provider of wellness experiences, we aim to help people reconnect with themselves in the nurturing and restorative environment of the African Bush. Derived from a symbol of prosperity, our logo stands to not only represent the intricate history of our country of origin, but also the wealth we help our clients discover through fostering their health and wellbeing. 

โ€‹

Representing both a token of wealth and a piece of Zimbabwean history, our logo was inspired by the design of the Ndoro. Before the 16th Centurary the Ndoro was a spiral pendant made from conus shells, worn by people of the Kingdom of Great Zimbabwe. According to historical records, the number of pendants worn by a your wife, indicated a persons rank and wealth in society. 

โ€‹

When the Portuguese recognised the popularity of these pendants made from conus shells, they manufactured facsimiles using clay to use as a currency for trading with the locAl people of Zimbabwe. The end product was glazed to create a white finish to mimic the natural  appearance of the conus.
