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!”

#mymenopausestory… Paula Hines @ucanyoga1 is a senior yoga teacher and writer moving through perimenopause.

I am grateful Paula was first to accept my invitation to share her story @my_menopausestory. And she does so with candour embracing her menopause journey as a Black woman with acceptance, curiosity and positivity. 
There is a void of research and representation focusing on Black women going through perimenopause, menopause and beyond. Thankfully, there are trailblazers like @menopausewhilstblack and @blackgirlsguidetomenopause whose efforts are changing this. 
All women go through the menopause and whilst our journeys are unique each and every one of our stories matters. There is so much power and resonance when we share our stories. 
Do head over to @my_menopausestory to read Paula’s full story, like, comment and share.  
If you would like to tell your #mymenopausestory please DM me.

Menopause is not the end of your life. Yes - it can be challenging, emotionally and physically. But it can also be a time for self-actualization and transformation.
