About the event:

Angie Lake has been teaching yoga for over 10 years now (and is loving every second of it!). She started practising yoga many years ago whilst living in Sri Lanka in her 20s and came back to it when recovering from alcoholism at aged 40. Yoga is now her life.

Angie originally qualified as an Ashtanga teacher, and a couple of years later completed her Vinyasa training in Zanzibar! Since then, she has trained in Menopause Yoga and CPD training.

“I would like to think that I teach from the heart with warmth and compassion and feel strongly that yoga is for EVERYBODY. My own yoga practice, both on and off the mat, is continually evolving and I feel incredibly lucky to teach what I love. Opening Lila yoga with Sarah and Moira is a dream come true and I can’t wait to build a caring, fun and inclusive community.”

We hope that through this workshop you find a community of people also experiencing menopausal symptoms, where there is support for one and other, a place to let go, and skills in moving and breathing that could be beneficial for you.

What to bring: Comfortable clothing & a yoga matt (please let me know in advance if you need one)

What will be provided: teas and a homemade treat

About the organiser:

Aye Breathe (Spit it Out Project)


Spit it Out
is an award-winning Scottish based organisation dedicated to opening conversations around consent, mental health and healing through creativity and community care. We realise the overarching goals of our project through collaborating with our community in delivering free activities in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Online. We work to create a lasting change in our community and create a support network within people who feel isolated and have been through trauma and mental health crises.

Aye Breathe was born of the realisation that the Spit it Out audience did not feel confident or welcome in the outdoors. Despite knowing the healing power of nature on the mind, they felt like it was not their place or felt out of reach because of a lack of knowledge, resources or mental space. We wanted to use this platform to offer them the opportunity to try new things, feel better and learn about themselves.
