What Our Client's Are Saying About Yoga...
"I never thought I could do yoga before trying it at Full Circle.  The instructors were so welcoming and when I explained I had never done Yoga before went out of their way to show me what to do and give me the attention I needed.  Now I attend several classes per week and don't know how I managed to live without yoga before!"
                                                                                              Angie L, Colonie, NY
"Amazing yoga program. Shelby is a great teacher who is always willing to take some time to work with you on the basics and help with any modifications you may need. If you have a particular area you would like to work on, she'll work it into the flow and give some recommendations of poses you can do on your own."              
                                                                                             Stephanie R,  Albany, NY 
"I love the instructors because they have taken so much extra time to help my hips and help me so that I can move more. I will take their class over and over again."                                   Robin S,   Voorheesville, NY
 "Love my Wednesday Night Yoga. Such a fun group of ladies and GREAT, caring instructors
                                                                                                   Joann M, Colonie, NY
"The first time I tried yoga was at a place where they offered Hot Yoga. I barely lasted 10 minutes before I had to leave the class and though that's how all yoga classes went.  A friend convinced me to give it a try at FCFNY and I quickly found out how wrong I was.  The classes are suitable for all levels including new Yogi's like me and the instructors and others in the class will welcome you with open arms.  If you've ever doubted your ability to do Yoga, doubt no more! FCFNY is the place for you! 
                                                                                                     Melissa F. Scotia, NY 
"I had never done yoga in my life but always wondered what it was about.  I gave it a try and now I'm hooked at the ripe old age of 79.  It's helped my mobility and improved my balance.  At 79 years old I no longer worry so much about falling.  LOVE IT!!!

Nadia El-Fawal

Nadia is a Certified Yoga Instructor specializing in working with those who might be a little afraid of Yoga or think they can't do it. 

In my Beginner level class students will marry breath and movement to build strength, balance, flexibility, and a connection with self. 

Each class will feature a variety of poses, breathing techniques, mindfulness and meditation.

Margi Sprager
I love to share my passion for wellness and yoga to others and help them them to explore and find their own path to self healing 

I became a Zen Yoga instructor and hold a 200 Zen Yoga certification. In addition, I am a medial Qigong instructor with Zen Wellness lineage based in Arizona. 

My Zen Yoga is held Monday evenings from 6-7pm and is  a Hatha based beginner level yoga class that incorporates medical Qigong principles through breathe awareness and visualization. 

Dan Romand
I started my Yoga Practice in 2002 after finally being "worn down" by a dear friend who tried to get me to do it for years. I was the typical "Guys Don't Do Yoga... Guy" 

Well she was right I got HOOKED after my first session. Not too long after that I was taking 4-5 classes per week and found not only did my balance and flexibility improve but I felt calmer and more at peace. 

Oh did I forget to mention...I am also former “fatty” who weighed in excess of 350 pounds when he first started doing Yoga . I also have a bad knee, 2 bad shoulders and neck issues from years of playing football.  If I can do Yoga,  ANYONE can? 

I became a Certified Instructor in 2011 and have had the pleasure of running hundreds of sessions.  I prefer to keep my session light and "fun" and have been known to crack a few jokes from time to time.. Who say's you can't laugh while doing Yoga. 

Specializing in working with Beginner's my true passion is helping those who've never done Yoga or been afraid to try to find their practice and the peace, joy and tranquility it can bring. 

In addition to being a Yoga Instructor I am also a  Certified Personal Trainer (AFFA) and Certified Nutrition Coach (Pn) who specializes in working with the morbidly obese.

Can I do it? 
YES! Our Yoga Sessions are designed for all levels from beginners to the advanced. Our instructors cater to you and your abilities and focus on teaching you how to do the poses correctly and safely so that you can maximize your enjoyment. First time trying Yoga?  This is the place for you we LOVE introducing Yoga to those that have never done it!

Do I need to Register?
Because we want to ensure our instructors can give each participant the attention and focus they deserve we limit our classes to a maximum of 15. (No cramming 30 or 40 people in a tiny room here!)  We ask that you call our office at 518-955-6924 prior to your first visit to let us know you will be attending. This will also allow us to let the instructors know you are coming as well :)

What Should I Expect In My First Class?
The honest answer is expect to fall in love with Yoga as so many have :)  Having said that each session is different and adapted to those in attendance. As we want to make your first experience the best it can be we ask that you arrive ten minutes early so that the instructor can meet you, learn about you and any injuries you have and help get you setup for your first class.

What should I wear?
Wear comfortable workout clothing. You can be barefoot or wear socks during the class. You may wish to bring a blanket for the end of class though it is not required. 

Do I need my own mat?
We strongly urge you to provide your own mat. The one we recommend is: Gaiam
That said if you don't have one.. no worries we have several here for you to use!

Where are You Located?
We are located at 251 New Karner Rd, Colonie NY.   Directions

Is there parking?
We have plenty of parking in the lot right front of our building.

What else should I know?
We know a first class anywhere can be a little nerve-wracking and we go to great lengths to make sure that you are comfortable. Let us know it's your first class and we'll be happy to work with you to learn the poses and adapt them to your level and ability.  Remember that this isn't about anyone but you, so show up ready to just have some 'you' time.
