There is a woman called Paula, AKA UcanYoga, who teaches Yin & Restorative at Embody Vauxhall every Friday evening. She is an incredible teacher, author and firm believer in #SwitchOffSundays – one to keep in mind for our bank holiday Sunday brains.
OK, enough of all the healthy stuff. Where are the cocktails? Cottons Tropical Brunch is where you want to be heading then, Misses.

For those not looking to pump iron or part take in any day drinking, why not stroll around Vauxhall and take in the city’s calm. Stock up on your plant supply at Andy’s Spring Nursery, have a coffee and lemon drizzle at the Ragged Canteen, check out the new exhibition at Gasworks, then take in a beer or wine at Faith’s Place with the donkeys and ducks.
