Special Events




Please join Dina Crosta and Ellen Mosko as they guide you through a weekend to reclaim your connection to focus, inner peace, and tranquility. Dina and Ellen will be drawing from three of Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga (Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi) and Ayurvedic wisdom to help you experience yourself as a fully present, nourished, and wholesome being. Expect mantra, meditation, asana, and some lecture. Also, if the weather permits, there will be some brief meditation practices outdoors. Please plan accordingly for the cooler weather and bring layers of clothing.

This weekend workshop is suitable for all levels of practitioner. Some prior yoga experience is helpful and variations will be made available.

Here’s how to register in two easy steps:

Go to the Himalayan Institute by clicking the link below:


1. Once on the Himalayan Fall Renewal page please place your cursor over the REGISTER NOW button and click on the drop down button BOOK A ROOM You have a choice of upgrading your accommodations if you desire. We have estimated for a double room with shared hall bath and meals. This will total $190.

2. Next go back to the original Fall Renewal page hover over the REGISTER NOW button and click on the drop down button REGISTRATION.  This will direct you back to the Elevate Yoga page where you can sign up and pay for the tuition portion of the weekend which is $225.

The total cost of the retreat, with a shared double room and meals is $415.  This is a great price for an inclusive, peaceful retreat with two well established teachers. It is a chance to turn off the cell phones, the noise of our daily lives and turn inward to renew your spirits and quiet the mind.

Many of you have asked about transportation.  We will post a list at the studio (www.ElevateYoga.net) for those wishing to attend the retreat and carpool with others.






Currently my longer form teacher trainings are held at Elevate Yoga in Hazlet, NJ. I am a part of a team of highly trained teachers who combined, have over 30 years of teaching experience. Jamie Hanley, Ellen Mosko and I have created both a 200 hour FOUNDATIONAL teacher training and a 300 hour MASTERY teacher training that addresses the needs and desires of both the student looking to become a teacher and the teacher looking to deepen her teaching skills. I am very proud of both of these trainings and would be happy to discuss more if you have any questions.
