Claimed government expenses: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

Expenses claimed by the Scottish government. In particular relating to two yoga classes on the 23rd October 2021 and 12th December 2021 both charged at £65. I would like to know why this was accepted as a legitimate expense and how many people have claimed this amount.


A 45 minute online yoga class was organised for Scottish Government employees for them to participate in a team wellbeing day. The payment covered the teacher's corporate rate of £5.00 per attendee and was deducted from allocated budget.
