EP 1.02: Elizabeth Rees – From Party Girl to Yoga Teacher

Welcome to Episode 2 of the No Ordinary Yogi podcast.  I recently had the pleasure of speaking to my friend and former yoga student Elizabeth Rees.  As you will hear in this episode, Elizabeth is now a yoga teacher herself.

Elizabeth brings a beautiful, fresh, young energy to the podcast and I was really grateful to have her as my very first guest.  I think I was more nervous than she was!  We talk about surviving university and doing a year-long teacher training all in the same year.  We also cover finding a sustainable personal yoga practice, self-care in the form of wild swimming, sports bra malfunctions and everything else in between!  And she spills a bit of tea about working at triyoga in London

About Elizabeth Rees

Elizabeth is a former student of Kat and now a 200 hour Yoga Alliance UK registered yoga teacher specialising in Vinyasa Flow.  She is currently based in Snowdonia in Wales.

She has recently completed a Masters degree and is awaiting news about PhD applications.  For now, she’s enjoying hanging out in the mountains of Snowdonia, wild swimming and walking with her dogs.

You can find more information about her yoga classes around Betws-y-Coed on her website or find her Instagram here.

About Your Host

Katherine Biggs has been a yoga teacher for seven years, and five years ago she founded Great Malvern Yoga, a dedicated yoga space in the heart of Great Malvern in Worcestershire.  An old boss once said to her that if you cut her in half, you would find the word “yoga” running through the middle.  This is not too far from the truth.  Her mission is to bring yoga to everyone, regardless of physical condition, so they can start living a more conscious and mindful life.

Kat lives in the beautiful Malvern Hills in the UK, where she can often be found drinking coffee and stroking her four cats.  She believes that if everyone does more yoga, we can all learn to live a life full of love.
