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!”

Get Social


Sundays are perfect for recharging.

If you're looking to spend a bit less time online then how about joining me for #SwitchOffSundays - one day a week away from all social media.

Allow yourself some space and time away from your screen to recharge.

THE HEART & SMALL INTESTINE ••• In TCM these are the pair of organs associated with Summer. In this video filmed @embodyvauxhall I am using a bolster to support my arms and forehead in Melting Heart Pose. Other meridian lines that can be stimulated here are the Lungs, Urinary Bladder, Stomach and Spleen.

For more like this, join me tomorrow and each Friday @embodyvauxhall for Yin & Restorative 5.45-7pm (max 10 spaces to comply with social distancing) 🙏🏾💛

(If coming to an in-person class isn’t possible for you, I’d love you to join me for my upcoming online Late Summer Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshop on Saturday 4th September - sliding scale pricing and at least 50% of proceeds will go to @brixtonsoupkitchen - link in my bio for details 🙏🏾💛)

DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT ••• Resposting myself from 2017 - the year I started switching off from social media on Sundays. If the idea of a ‘cold-turkey’ social media break feels a bit daunting, join me for one day a week away from social media. Your nervous system will thank you 💙

SOCIAL MEDIA SWITCH OFF SUNDAYS 📵 👉🏾 Disconnect to Reconnect.

Do you ever find yourself reaching for your smartphone 📱on waking, or being online right up to bedtime?
During the summer I took a week-long Social Media Holiday (see earlier posts for details) - 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
my 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've decided to keep my Sundays social media free ever since and so, ‘Switch Off Sundays’ was born! 😀 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. This can also be a great place to start from if a whole week off social media feels like too much of a leap for you right now.

Whatever your plans, enjoy the rest of your weekend 😊
