Why Fuller Yoga?
We have a beautiful 3,000sq foot facility where you can enjoy quality instruction with a caring community. We have a yoga room complete with mats, blocks, blankets, straps etc. as well as a Pilates reformer studio with 5 Peak Pilates combo reformers. In addition to that we have a bright and sunny lobby, restroom, individual far infrared sauna room and massage room.
Some of the best classes to start with are Essential Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga and Yoga with Props. These classes are informative and give lots of detail as you gently stretch your body and learn basic principles of yoga.
You will want to wear clothes you can move in comfortably without belts, buttons, or zippers. Clothing should not be too loose. Some people are very sensitive to smell so we ask that you refrain from wearing perfumes, heavy scented clothing or oils.
You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat however, there are a variety of mats on the marketplace and we do recommend some over others. We have plenty of mats and equipment you can use until you know what works for you.
Specialty classes are small group classes that utilize non-portable equipment such as a Pilates Reformer Pilates Chair, Tower or Ropes and Slings wall. In these classes you will receive more individual attention to your specific needs. Due to the small group and equipment these classes are offered at a higher rate than our group classes.
For Specialty classes you absolutely need to pre-register due to the limited equipment.
For group classes we strongly suggest you sign up for class prior to coming. Some classes do fill up fast. If you are having trouble signing up or you forgot please feel free to come anyway and we will sign you in when you come.
We suggest shorts and a sports bra or a bathing suit. Having your skin exposed to the radiant heat is best for releasing toxins and heating the body. Please place your towel on the seat to catch any sweat.
Yes we have a shower in our restroom. Students are free to use the shower as needed but please remember it is also our only restroom.
Our Clients Say It Best
Highly recommend. The Sculpt and Flow class with Caitlin is a dynamic workout that will quickly sculpt. She makes it fun and enjoyable for all levels of experience.I enjoyed the pilates reformer class with the owner Justine. She was knowledgeable, helpful, and made me feel very comfortable as a first timer.Also the studio is beautiful and has a spectacular view.
I love Fuller Yoga, I've been attending classes at Fuller Yoga for years now and can't recommend it enough. I love the late night restorative classes & all levels yoga classes. The atmosphere is calming and clean :)!
All Clear Electrolysis
Beautiful space. I had a first class with Lila, she is a wonderful instructor. Looking forward to more classes.
A true test in life is to fix your ailing body. After seeing specialists, you'll need a teacher and a healer like Lauren and her staff. Genuine souls and passionate healers through yoga, pilates, stretching, meditation, massage, sound therapy....Their yoga space is one of kind. All glass clad triangular studio, cantilevered over a public sidewalk. With the tall trees and ever changing sky, like yoga in Heaven. God bless!
Sound healing outside was so relaxing taking in nature and the sounds was just amazing. Can't wait to do it again. Perfect night for it.
I tried the infrared sauna last week and I loved it so much I'm going to buy a package deal. It made me feel fantastic and my skin feels great! Also, have always enjoyed all of the yoga too!
Completing yoga teacher training at Fuller Yoga was a great experience! The program provided a lot of useful background focused on anatomy and alignment, and the smaller group size made it easier to ask questions and participate. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to deepen their practice or try out teaching.
I have FINALLY found the BEST studio around!! I started taking Pilates classes and now I have added two more classes, barre and reformer. At Fuller Yoga you are always welcome and they motivate you to keep coming back because you feel so great after each class. Also Lauren is very knowledgeable on the human body.
I have scoliosis and yoga classes with Justine have been extremely helpful in alleviating the pain it causes. A few months of weekly classes has made a massive difference in the level of discomfort I experience. When I look at posture in the mirror before and after each class I can see a visible improvement in my posture and the evenness of my shoulders. Justine has also taught me stretches to alleviate pain if it arises between classes. Thank you, Justine!
Fuller classes are keeping me sane during this pandemic and it is SUPER appreciated that you guys continued streaming classes for us. A huge THANK YOU to all the instructors!!
Even now during COVID-19 Fuller Yoga is going strong with live zoom classes. Can't recommend this special studio enough!!!Written last year....Fuller Yoga has an inspiring and rigorous program offering all levels and many yoga practices ranging from Vinyasa, Power to Meditative, Stretching. An added bonus is that a variety of Pilates and Barre classes are also offered which complements ones yoga practice. The instructors are well-educated, dedicated, supportive, insightful and creative while leading their class with the ability to propose alternative moves for the individual’s need. Lauren Justine Fuller’s vision provides a special place to practice yoga, pilates and barre in a warm community allowing all individual’s to develop informed practices. Finally, there are workshops. private sessions, a yoga wall and teacher training to boot! I highly recommend this very special studio!
I've taken may different classes here - gentle yoga, heated power yoga and meditation. All the classes have been fantastic and the staff is wonderful. I highly recommend Fuller Yoga!
As a yoga teacher, I personally want to take classes at a studio where I feel the instruction is quality and inspired. I adore the variety of classes that Fuller Yoga offers, and the instructors are top notch. I especially value all of Justine Fuller's classes. Her knowledge of anatomy is deep, and her skill set is vast. Every yoga / barre / pilates class is unique, and there is a wisdom to how she sequences the movements and offers modifications to accommodate all levels or physical needs. I walk out of every class feeling mentally and physically stretched out, relaxed, and inspired. I HIGHLY recommend checking out this studio for a fantastic yoga experience experience!
Fuller offers a variety of classes for all levels of yoga, Pilates and Barre! The location and studio is great!
Just started coming here in March.. All instructors are amazing and very knowledgeable. Pilates classes are wonderful.
April 2019 update: still love and highly recommend Fuller Yoga. Justine offers a lot of specialty workshops and series like yoga for scoliosis, nutrition workshops, beginner classes, etc. Really looking forward to bringing my daughter to the next mother daughter class!Original review: Fuller offer a wide variety of different classes, a full schedule, and many good membership packages. I've taken Pilates, Barre, and various types of yoga here. All of the instructors have excellent knowledge of anatomy and alignment, and can help individualize your practice so it works best for you in a safe way. Also they just opened a sister studio in West Hartford!
LOVE Fuller Yoga!!!! There are many different classes and workshops that meet my needs. Instructors are amazing! Many class times, especially on the weekends which works with my work schedule. I highly recommend this studio!!
I usually go the All levels classes and they are excellent. Kateryna is my favorite instructor she is really approachable and understanding of any injuries you may have. Great energy and friendly faces all the time.
In the past, I never liked yoga because as a person with sever back issues, I was always in pain in every position. It was not until I went to the Fuller yoga studio that I came to love yoga. Justine Fuller has an incredible ability to intuit what adjustments are needed to a pose. I am forever grateful.
I was introduced to Fuller Yoga when Justine, the owner, offered an adult education class through the town recreation department. Best find ever for me. I've had 3 hip replacements (yes, 3) and prolotherapy twice on my shoulder. I fear injuring myself but not here. I particularly like yoga with props and feel amazing after a one hour class. Each class starts with the teacher asking if there are any sensitive or painful areas to address. There is no judgement. I am encouraged to do my best, whatever my best is that day. Try a class and see if you agree.
Wonderful place to learn and practice yoga!
Excellent service and professional instructors
Fabulous leadership of a wonderful staff. The best yogi in Glastonbury hands down.
I highly recommend Fuller Yoga. Justine is so knowledgeable and is an excellent instructor. She ensures her clients are doing the exercises properly to get maximum benefit and to avoid injury. All her instructors are terrific and the classes are varied. A wonderful and friendly environment as well.
Fuller is my home away from home. I love the classes and the instructors and go to one nearly every day. Justine Fuller ((owner) and her staff keep me balanced and flexible. Don't know what I would do without them. I started attending classes more than 4 years ago. I was in a lot of pain - neck, hip, you-name-it. Now I am pretty much pain free and when something hurts, I've learned how to work it out with yoga. Thanks, Fuller!
Fuller Yoga provides personal touch to your needs. The instructors are very knowledgeable, the studio is clean. Variety of yoga and Pilate classes are offered on daily basis.
Amazing instructors. I took part in the hot yoga class- they pay attention to everyone in the class and offer tips on improving different positions. They even have nice essential oils for use before and after shravasna.
I have been going to Fuller for a few years an it never gets old! There are a variety of classes an class times and Justine is always running special classes and events. I highly reccomend trying a class if you haven't.
Fuller offers a variety of classes for all levels! It has such a warm and welcoming environment where you can feel comfortable to try new things. The instructors also make you feel comfortable to explore different poses and challenge yourself. Definitely recommend! 🙂
Justine has an extensive knowledge of yoga and the human body. Her classes will leave you feeling complete and relaxed. I fully recommend many of the classes, for all levels. My own daughter takes private lessons to work on her scoliosis which has been truly effective. Go to Fuller Yoga!
Fuller Yoga is a wonderful place to build flexibility and strength. The instructors are knowledgeable and provide great feedback. I particularly enjoy the Barre classes and Fuller yoga (practiced on a round mat with movements flowing in a circular pattern). After a year, my posture is better and I can consistently touch my toes! Hey- THAT is an achievement!
My favorite part of going to Fuller Yoga is their yoga wall. I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone at all stages of practice. It helps me understand and practice proper alignment of poses. Justine has a deep understanding of spinal health and this has been very useful during classes. She pays attention to each participant, and gives instruction as needed. I like the ease of scheduling classes online, and the evening/weekend classes work into my schedule.
Instructors are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. A great variety of classes, literally something for everyone! Very welcoming atmosphere. Clean and recently renovated. Also has a sister location in West Hartford. You won’t be disappointed!
I love the variety of classes at Fuller Yoga and the class schedules work great for me. Very knowledgeable instructors.
I have fully appreciated Fuller Yoga from my very first Introduction to Yoga 6 week series 3-4 years ago. First, I began after a series of back issues, including herniating a disk 2 or 3 times in the past. I have learned so much since beginning while gaining a lot of flexibility, a lot more strength and a lot more confidence in knowing how to take care of my back. The variety of instructors has been great as I've learned pieces from each of them to help build my own practice. I also enjoy some of the specialty classes such as the Pilates chair, ropes, yoga with props, etc and have learned a lot from each!I don't recall how I found Fuller but I'm glad I did.
Great selection of yoga classes and knowledgeable instructors.
Love everything about this studio especially that I can take a Barre class one day and a heated power yoga class the next! Such a great place.
I have been a member at Fuller Yoga for 7 years. I make it a point to get here 2-3 times a week for the heated power classes.The studio offers many different classes such as heated power yoga, gentle, restorative and intro as well. In addition they offer Pilates and Barre classes. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and care about everyone having the best experience possible. My recommendation is to try the heated power classes. It's a great way to challenge yourself & work-up a sweat.If you are looking to try Fuller, take advantage of the new student special, 30 days of unlimited yoga for $45.
Just started coming here in February and I love it! Such a welcoming and non-threatening environment, especially for newbies like me! Each instructor I have had so far has been wonderful.
Just started coming here in January and I love it! Fuller yoga is now my go to studio! This is a very welcoming studio with trained instructors who teach you how to do yoga for your body and needs! Always learning off of the different styles and instructors of yoga and finding new friends who enjoy the same classes as I do. Love Melissa’s class on Fridays and every other Saturday. Also enjoy KB, Natalie and Kateryna. A great place to experience a yoga practice with your own needs in mind. Worth my 35+ minute drive to Glastonbury.
I started coming to Fuller Yoga in January and it has been amazing! I have been struggling with some vestibular issues and neck pain and it has helped tremendously. I love the Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes with Kateryna and the All Levels class with Nancy! I also really like the variety in classes, from beginner yoga to pilates 🙂 Great studio!
I’ve been practicing yoga at Fuller for about eight months; enjoying each and every twist and vinyasa.
Have been attending All Levels Yoga weekly for over a year now - the best class and instructors! Everyone is so friendly and kind. I’m always looking forward to class each and every week !

I've been working with Justine Fuller for several years in private Pilates sessions. Started when I retired in my late 50's to help with back soreness & stiffness after sitting at a desk for hours on end for years. Justine's knowledge of how our muscles work, paired with her extensive Pilates & yoga skill and experience, has challenged (without comprising my limitations) my body to a place of energy, flexibility, balance & confidence. I also attend All Levels Yoga at Fuller Yoga - Justine has employed wonderful instructors who teach in the most healthy way. I highly recommend Fuller Yoga to all - experienced yogis and beginners as well. Namaste
Just started coming to this yoga studio about a month ago and I love both the variety of classes and teachers. Tried the Ropes and Slings Yoga class and loved it. Helpful for my lower back issues and Justine was great at teaching proper alignment with each pose. Loved the stretching and traction the class provided. A must try if you have back issues!
I recently attended a special class focusing on scoliosis and yoga positions. I was amazed at how knowledgable Justine is on this topic. She gave each participant hands on guidance specifically to our issues with scoliosis. Working on the yoga wall designed for this purpose was a great experience. I hope Justine will be offering more classes like this one in the future!
In my search for relief from the discomfort of scoliosis, Justine Fuller of Fuller Yoga was recommended to me. I am so grateful for the recommendation and the opportunity to work with Justine. She is extremely knowledgeable and well educated about scoliosis and the effect it can have on the body. She is patient and understanding and has the ability to know just what the body needs to move as it should with any limitations.In the few weeks that I have been working with Justine, using the Yoga Wall( pretty amazing) I have felt relief , have improved my posture and continue to work on strengthening overall!! The results for me have been better than Physical Therapy in that it is a whole different way to approach scoliosis.I highly recommended that you check out ALL the up coming classes at Fuller Yoga.Thanks Justine - so happy to be working with you!
I have just completed an OUTSTANDING 6 week Intro to Mat Pilates class with Justine. Although I had been to other Pilates studios and classes over the years, this is the very first time that I really feel I understand the elements (anatomy, breathing) to be successful. I look forward to Pilates Chair next!
Justine has so much knowledge of the workings of the human body and provides feedback for proper execution of each pose and exercise. As a Physical. Therapist , I am very impressed with her program and would highly recommend her studio for my patients.
Recently did a hot, power vinyasa here. Really enjoyed the class and studio atmosphere. The instructor was great. Down to earth, friendly, and very good at providing cues (in other words you don't always have to look up to see what the class is doing, you can tell by what she says). Overall great studio, excellent instructor, and welcoming atmosphere. Just bring a small towel if you do the hot yoga, you're going to sweat.

Honestly, this is the highlight of my day. Love the people and classes!
I started at Fuller Yoga because a friend from work encouraged me to have a private session with Justine to evaluate my scoliosis. After meeting with Justine, I have gained such a greater understanding of how my scoliosis not only affects my yoga practice but also my day to day habits such as how I stand and sit. My relationship with the studio then blossomed as I started taking classes more regularly there, feeling at home with the teachers who each have their styles and expertise. I was impressed by how many classes were offered, and the integrity with which the studio was run. Then I started the Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) with Justine in the Fall of 2016. That has been a truly amazing and transformative experience. I have grown so much in my yoga practice, and my life! (I know that may sound crazy, but if you're thinking about a YTT, trust me Fuller is the place to be!). We took our YTT out of the studio, taking classes in NYC that Justine arranged for us, broadening our yoga horizon. I have recently graduated from the YTT training, and can honestly say that despite being hesitant and nervous at first, enjoy teaching. I begin teaching weekly classes next month, and are planning various workshops. Fuller Yoga- what a gem! Thank you Justine!!!
The owner, Justine, is so knowledgeable and talented she makes the studio go above and beyond along with her other, hand picked and experienced instructors. Everyone has a great attitude and is welcoming to newcomers. I did my first yoga class here and they made me feel like I was already a yogi. I've tried other places and I always find myself coming back here. The prices are good and the experience is the best. Plus, there are a wide variety of classes including barre, Pilates and all sorts of yoga (gentle, meditation, power, beginner, heated etc). I brought my mom here when she wanted to start yoga and she did a 6 week intro series that taught her all the basics of yoga and now she's even better than I am! 10/10 would recommend.
Gifted teachers , great community and a wide variety of classes and workshops.
Instructors make the experience. Justine has an amazing talent for understanding and teaching Yoga/Pilates/Barre. She explains every move and even comes around to adjust positions as needed. Every class is different. Fuller Yoga makes me feel in-shape and is a great outlet for stress. I've tried many other places - Fuller is my home. (Lisa Martocci)
You'll be hard pressed to find another yoga studio as well rounded as Fuller. They have different level yoga classes (both heated and non-heated), mat pilates, barre class. You don't often find a studio that offers and excels at all three, the value really can't be beaten. Both the owner, Justine, and all the teachers are such sweethearts and are masters of their craft. Highly recommend!
Love this place! The owner is fantastic and has a great sense of humor. She will continuously help you to get your position correct within your limitations without judgement. Other instructors are also nice! Highly recommend Fuller Yoga!
I just went to a Pilates Mat class and it was really great. Justine is an excellent instructor. I cannot wait to go to more classes!!!
Lauren Justine Fuller discovered yoga amid a lifelong pursuit of dance and creative movement. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from San Francisco State University with a BA in Dance, Lauren was drawn to yoga for its expressive power and transformative potential. After completing her teacher training at Yoga Union in New York City, Lauren refined her teaching focus to nonlinear sequences that build strength and flexibility in both body and mind. Following her breath and body toward full expression, Lauren developed the Fuller Mat, a circular mat that opens pathways to spinal flexibility, axial elongation, and a deeply empowering flow. Marked by organic transitions between movements, Fuller Yoga was born of Lauren’s appreciation for each student’s desire to find a safe, accepting, and invigorating place on the mat. Lauren continues to train and innovate her practice and brings her personal practice and discoveries to her students in every class she teaches, whether it’s Fuller Yoga, Pilates, or Fuller Barre. Lauren opened the doors of Fuller Yoga and Pilates studio in 2004. With over 23 years of teaching experience, she welcomes students of all abilities to find a connection to their body and mind through the movement of the body. Drawing on a diverse background in yoga, dance, Pilates, and personal training, as well as the influences of her teachers Alison West, Godfrey Deveraux, Ana Forrest, and Seane Corn.

Since then she has been studying and teaching yoga, while tirelessly researching other mind-body health modalities and human anatomy. Her classes are an eclectic combination of all of her research with concentration on creating space for each student to have an ability and knowledge to tailor practice to his or her needs.
Years ago Melissa found herself struggling with anxiety, insomnia, and chronic neck pain. Fed up with being in a rut Melissa began taking yoga and meditation classes.

As Melissa continued to practice yoga and meditation she had a deep desire to grow and learn more so she enrolled in a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training through Kripalu School of Yoga followed by certifications in Restorative Yoga, Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga and Reiki Levels 1, 2, Master, Master of Masters and Master Teacher. Melissa teaches meditation and Kripalu Yoga of all levels, including beginners, gentle, restorative, all levels, power, and SUP yoga.
