Emma Tian Williamson

This course will be led by experienced Breathworks teacher Emma Tian Williamson.

Emma is a mindfulness teacher based in London with an approach that focuses on mind and body awareness. 

Drawn to mindfulness after a period of work related burnout, she found integrative practices and meditation to be ‘antidotes for modern life’. Fascinated by the power we hold to transform our minds, Emma’s style of teaching explores ways that we can respond to life in more calm, creative and kind ways. 

As a Breathworks Associate Teacher, she runs 8-week courses and workshops for the organisations. She also co-runs the People of Colour group on the Community of Practice as a space for people to find commonality and representation in the mindfulness world.

With her Head of Marketing and Communications hat on, she created the Conscious Marketing for Mindfulness Teachers course to help other teachers gain the confidence and skills to master marketing.

Outside of Breathworks, she runs her wellbeing consultancy Flow & Create where she holds mindfulness and wellness programmes for workplaces and individuals. Past clients include King’s College London, Wilderness Festival and Sheffield Haworth.

She also teaches yoga and qi gong around London, and enjoys bringing her own mindful movement approach to her classes. 

For her, what she loves most about teaching is passing on the tools that have helped her to live a more balanced and happy life. 

She enjoys keeping herself sustained by travel, books, podcasts and getting out into nature.
