Welcome to U Can Yoga

My intention is to give you the space to nurture yourself as you breathe, strengthen and stretch your body and mind.

I encourage you to tune into your body and move safely, with awareness through your yoga asana (posture) practice as you find your own expression of yoga, access your true nature and come back home to yourself.

Student Feedback

“Excellent yoga teacher. Paula is a fantastic teacher – clear, calm…simply excellent!”
Lucy B

“I attended one of Paula’s classes and was immediately hooked. Paula is a calm, kind and empathic teacher who obviously knows what she is talking about. Her classes are a mixture of energetic and soothing work that made me feel refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to face the world again. I would highly recommend her classes to everyone.”  
Catherine L

“I have got to know someone who is not only an excellent yoga teacher but also a general all round awesome person. Paula is the most reliable, conscientious and patient person I know and as a result we have worked together several times on master classes and retreats. After great feedback from our various retreat guests I am also very glad to say I have also just welcomed Paula to my 200hr teacher training team and hope she will enjoy training up our next group of student teachers as she has a lot of knowledge to share.”
Sally Parkes – Founder of Sally Parkes Yoga

“Worth a trip to London for! Paula is a great teacher. Warm and friendly she offers fun classes with just the right amount of focus on alignment to help you enhance and progress your practice. I’d recommend her to everyone!”

SWITCH OFF SUNDAYS 📵 👉🏾 If you're looking to spend a bit less time online then how about joining me for Switch Off Sundays - one day a week away from all social media. Allow yourself some space and time away from your screen to recharge.
If you’re new to this account here’s more info on the ‘why’ of Switch Off Sundays 👉🏾 Do you ever find yourself reaching for your smartphone 📱on waking, or being online right up to bedtime?
During the summer of 2017 I took a week-long Social Media Holiday - one week away from all social media platforms. Though I enjoy social media, I find it is all too easy to for 5 minutes to turn into 10 or 20 minutes or more (!) of scrolling.
Does any of this ring true for you?

Aside from studies showing that the blue light emitted from our smart phones and computer screens can hinder sleep, research also suggests a link between spending extended time on social media and experiencing negative mental health outcomes.

Just a few things I noticed from that week-long social media holiday 👉🏾 I found my mood was brighter, I slept better, and I enjoyed more time reading (real books 📚 not an eReader). With this in mind I decided to keep my Sundays social media free ever since and so, ‘Switch Off Sundays’ was born! 😀 I’ve taken more week-long (and longer) breaks from social media since, but giving yourself one day a week away from all social media can be a great place to start if a longer period feels too much of a leap for you right now.

Whatever your plans, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend ☀️💛🙏🏾

SUMMER YIN YOGA ☀️ LATERAL DRAGONFLY POSE ••• Try this seated side-bending pose for Heart, Intestine and Lung meridian stimulation. In this short video filmed @embodyvauxhall, I show you how to use a bolster or block for support in your side bend. You can place your support either in front or behind your leg on the side you are moving your upper body towards. If your back tends to round when you are sitting then you can sit on a block (as I am here) or a cushion or folded blanket to tilt your pelvis and bring your spine into a neutral position. Aim to be in your Lateral Dragonfly for 1-3 minutes on each side. Always work within your own range 💛
For more like this, join me here at the @embodyvauxhall studio tomorrow and each Friday for Yin & Restorative 17.45-19.00 🧘🏾‍♀️

Would you like to join us? See link in @yogamattershq bio to sign up 🙏🏾💛

YINYASA - WEDNESDAYS 11.30-12.30 @yogapointbrixton in the studio (places limited to 8) and online •••

This class is a meditative combination of flowing yang (active) postures and yin (floor-based passive) postures accessing the body’s deep connective tissues and connecting the breath with mindful movement. The intention of this yin and yang flow is to create more space and integrity in the body, finding ease and release while cultivating more mind/body awareness.
