About The Event

Let's spend Autumn 2021 in The Vines at Toms Cap Vineyard!

Namaskar Retreats are getting out of town and venturing into spectacular Southern Victoria, to arrive to Toms Cap Vineyard with Dan Byrne of Cymatic Harmony, our live musician from the Mornington Peninsula.

The second Niyama of the 8 limbs, Santosha (or Contentment), is what Namaskar Retreats has set as our intention for our offerings. 

We want you to be content, feel loved, nurtured, at peace with yourself and in a state of equanimity.

Lisa will lead you through beautiful, restorative yin yoga and meditation, closing with a deep Yoga Nidra practice,

You will be massaged with light, short Shiastsu techniques by Lisa and  Paul during the long, holding postures to bring your relaxation to next level zen as you turn inward to find stillness and nurture your mind, nourish your body and shine outward from your heart.

Heal your soul with an incredible Sound Meditation;

Dan is a master genius at his craft playing the Harmonic Drums, also heard of as the Hangdrum or Hand pan. He moves so magically around the room, offering resplendent levels of calm and reassurance in the sound vibrations created each time his fingertips connect with the drums.

Of course, there is always a glass of wine to complete your experience and you are invited to our two days of wine tasting at Cellar Door during your retreat.

On our first day, enjoy a lavish cheese platter, during wine tasting or whilst in Lisa's Mindfulness and Journaling workshop.

Learn the history of the hang drum and how to play one in a Harmonic Drums Hand Pan lesson with Dan on a chill Saturday afternoon.

Vegan, Vegetarian and non-vegan, Gluten Free and Dairy Free menus can be arranged.

Our caterers will be in contact with you, once you have registered to learn your dietary requirements.

Each day there are 2 or more sessions which include a Vinayasa flow, a Restorative Yin session and Soundscape.

What is Yin Yoga?

The practice of Yin and its mindful stretching postures and meditative long holds are designed to balance out the yang in our lives and acitivity. Yin Yoga will also assist in preparation for physical activity and post workout recovery care.

Whether you are new to yoga or have an advanced practice, whether you feel you are tight and stiff, “Yin Yoga can help improve your flexibility because it releases tightness and tension in your fascia and joint capsules” - Hugh Lee

Modifications and variations are offered to suit every body.

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra, also known as Ancient or Yogi Sleep, is the best method to remove any impurities in our channels such as negative emotions, desires and worries. It will aid you in reaching a sound and deep sleep of the physical body, while your mind remains alert. ⁣⁣
