Emma Ullvin

Emma Ullvin is a qualified MBSR Mindfulness teacher with Mindful Academy Solterreno.

Emma initially found mindfulness as a tool to manage stress and a busy life, but after having seen benefits in every area of her life she came to view mindfulness as a foundational skill and practice. These are the roots, from which we can grow a little more stable and resilient to weather the winds of the challenges that life may bring, as well as a gateway to experience more joy, meaning, and equanimity.

After intense academic studies at Bowdoin College, Emma worked as Marketing Manager for an AI start-up (Expertmaker, now eBay) and eventually transitioned to run her own mindfulness business where she feels fulfilled guiding people on their journey to a more mindful and meaningful life. She is multilingual and although originally from Sweden, she has moved around throughout her life and is now based in Amsterdam, NL.

 Emma works both with individual groups and companies and offers her services in-person as well as online.

The course started and all my doubts…

Elise testimonial

Hear from Elise who has just finished the ONLINE version of the MBSR Teacher Training course, first level, TT1.

The excellent initial teacher training that I received at Solterreno in 2014 allowed me to take my first steps on my teaching pathway. The certificate, proof on paper that I could deliver the MBSR curriculum and be a "good enough" teacher. 

for me, this TT3 step came at just the right time.

Since training at Solterreno I have begun teaching the MBSR course in my local area and I have been accepted onto the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations. This shows that my training at Solterreno and ongoing supervision meets the UK Good Practice Guidelines for…
