Yoga Series

Whole Wellness Yoga Series

Food as medicine has always been a mantra of Oryana, but much more can feed our minds, bodies and souls to support our health. Oryana is partnering with New Moon Yoga to provide a series of combination yoga classes and wellness talks addressing four common mental health concerns. These sessions will support your path to healing physically, emotionally, and spiritually through yoga, supplements, essential oils, and more.

This will be a quarterly yoga series exploring natural remedies for the mental health concerns that many of us deal with either seasonally or frequently. Sessions will take place monthly throughout 2018, with the mental health topic changing quarterly. The sessions will be 1.5 hours and participants are encouraged to attend one, some or all sessions, as they feel comfortable. Each session will begin with an hour of themed yoga followed by a half hour to discuss wellness products that have been shown to help relieve these common ailments.

The purpose of this series is to teach students how to effectively use movement and breath to provide relief for specific mental health concerns as well as to provide information on different wellness products that have been shown to help. These classes are designed to provide tools that students can use outside of the classroom to find relief.

*All presentations will take place on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 1-2:30 pm at New Moon Yoga Studio.

Relieving Stress

April 15 (moved to April 22), May 20, June 17

This class will focus on calming three common types of stress: work, relationship, and time-management. We will begin each class with breathwork to prep our minds and bodies for practice. We will learn how to become more comfortable with feeling uncomfortable through a style of yoga called Yin. Yin Yoga involves 26 poses that are to be held for multiple minutes deepening our flexibility, improving our joint health, and helping to still the mind through breath and meditation. By the end of this class you will be in a state of bliss! Taught by: Devin, Marlaina, and Abby 200-hour RYT

Postive Body Image

July 15, August 19, September 16

This class will focus on how to love and appreciate our bodies and the astonishing things they do. We will surround ourselves in a supportive and healing environment without judgement or jealousy. This class will use mantras, meditation, and breathwork to begin healing from within, which will help us heal externally. We will then move into poses to help build strength and heat throughout the entire body. Our bodies are absolutely remarkable and it’s time we realize that. All are welcome! This class is designed for all bodies and yoga levels. Taught by: Devin Moore 200-hour RYT


October 21, November 18, December 16

Focusing on focus, this class will explore breath work, poses for awareness in the body, and mindfulness. Many of us speed through our day tending to myriad responsibilities, rushing after to-do lists, and slowly losing connection with one of our most vital biological needs: the breath. Bringing forth awareness of the breath brings forth awareness of the self. This class will provide the peaceful and safe space needed to loosen one's grip on the "everything else" and deepen into the present moment. Come and enjoy one full hour of awakening to yourself, your moment, and your breath. 

Taught by: Abby 200-hour RYT

About the Instructors:

Abby Havill (RYT 200) is a passionate outdoor enthusiast, animal lover, plant-based cooking devotee, and gracious student of the supremely vast world of yoga. It is her joy to bring even a slice of the yoga pie to those interested in learning and bending together! 

Mindfulness and yoga go hand in hand. Mindfulness and life would benefit from joining forces more often, as well. It is vital in this crazy world to at least try and calm our tired brains once in a while. Through the capability that lies within us all let's begin the journey of mindfulness together. Using breathing techniques, mindfulness techniques, and different yoga postures mighty internal changes can take place. Please join us, and always remember - when we open our minds we might just learn something! 

Marlaina Norgan
is a 200-hr registered yoga instructor as of 2015 and she has been a student of yoga since 2002. She regularly teaches at Yen Yoga and Fitness and is the Bakery Manager at Oryana Community Co-op. She advocates for health and wellness for all types of people and is very passionate about educating and helping people to live their best life! Marlaina wanted to teach the SAD portion of the Yoga series because she has personal and family experience with this issue, it is the most important time of the year for self-care and she is excited to share her knowledge on the issue along with some great techniques to help you get through the winter!


Devin Moore was born in Port Huron, MI, but has spent most of her life around the 45 parallel. She began practicing yoga around the age of 14 and quickly realized the how much the sequences resonated with her. After attending college for a few years, Devin took a two-year break and rediscovered her yoga practice. She found that yoga gave her strength, inspiration, and peace both mentally and physically. She decided to share the gifts yoga gave her with the community by becoming a 200-hour RYT through Shanti School of Yoga in 2014.

Upon spending several months solely teaching yoga, Devin decided to finish her college degree in order to help and reach even more people. She moved to Marquette and finished her bachelor’s degree in Community Health Education at Northern Michigan University. This degree allows Devin to help people prevent chronic and noncommunicable diseases through education, nutrition, and exercise. Devin is currently the Education and Outreach Coordinator at Oryana Community Co-op, where she is able to educate the community through food, presentations, collaborations, and information. Devin believes that being healthy is not just an exclusive trend or certain body-type, but a lifestyle attainable for all through the right foods, environment, mindset, and exercise--and she is happy to be able to help others achieve it.

Crystal Turner, E-RYT 200, was introduced to natural healing remedies and yoga as a young child. She was later encouraged by her daughter to reconnect with her mat to combat a knee injury, migraines, stress, and to resume a more positive body image. Yoga for Crystal has been a true source of energy, light, balance, and healing as she continues to passionately practice, working from the inside out.

Crystal earned her 200- RYT, under the instruction of Jenny Lintvedt, 500 E-RYT and Heidi Dietrich, 500-RYT, and is a registered member of the Yoga Alliance Association. She is a certified Reiki Master and currently teaches various yoga styles at Yen Yoga and Fitness,  Centre Ice Fitness and Munson Cowell Family Cancer Center. She holds TRX Suspension, TRX Group TRX Yoga, and Connection Coalition Yoga certifications, as well as a certification in Ascension Aerial Yoga. She has also studied Oncology Yoga with Dr. Laura Kupperman, and has also studied Relieving Stress and Anxiety with Yoga with Kath Ornish. She has also worked with local area business, including Copper Ridge Munson Healthcare and TBA Credit Union. Crystal is the owner of Karasi Fitness and Healing Arts, and is currently working towards her 300 hour yoga certification.

Her teaching style is energetic, intuitive, nurturing, motivating, athletic and creative with a focus on overall balance and core strength while effectively connecting mind, body and spirit, empowering students to move positively, and fluidly on and off of the mat.

Off the mat, Crystal serves her community as Wellness Department Manager for Oryana Community Co-op, and during this yoga series, she is looking forward to providing information on natural remedies dedicated to each of the selected topics.
