Emily’s Full Bio
Emily Fletcher is the founder of Ziva Meditation, author of the best selling book, “Stress Less, Accomplish More” and considered a leading expert in meditation for performance.
The New York Times, The Today Show, Vogue and ABC News have all featured Emily’s work. She’s been named one of the top 100 women in wellness to watch, has taught more than 15,000 students around the world and has spoken on meditation for performance at Google, Harvard Business School, Summit Series, Viacom, Wanderlust Festival & The Omega Center. Ziva graduates include Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony award winners, as well as NBA players, CEOs, busy parents, entrepreneurs and everyone in between.
Her recent accomplishments provide a stark contrast to the stressed out Broadway performer she was ten years ago. During Emily’s decade-long career on Broadway, which included roles in Chicago, The Producers & A Chorus Line, she began going gray at 27, suffering from insomnia, underperforming at work, getting sick 4-5 times a year — and believing this was all “normal.” In 2008, Emily was introduced to a powerful practice that cured her insomnia and improved her health on the very first day. She stopped going gray, she stopped getting sick, and started kicking a$$ at work (and loving it).
Her physical and professional transformation was so dramatic that she felt inspired to share it with others. One year later, Emily left Broadway for Rishikesh, India to begin what would become three years of teacher training. She founded Ziva in 2011 opening the NYC studio and created the world’s first online meditation training.
After years of teaching thousands of people, Emily realized that meditation was not enough to help her students perform at the top of their personal and professional game. In 2017, Emily developed The Ziva Technique: a powerful trifecta of mindfulness, meditation and manifesting designed to unlock your full potential. The proven benefits of The Ziva Technique include decreased stress, less anxiety, deeper sleep, improved immune function, increased productivity and extraordinary performance.
Emily’s teaching style is entertaining, accessible, easy to adopt, and attracts many top performers from around the globe. You can enroll in zivaONLINE or zivaLIVE courses at zivameditation.com.
“The busier you are, the more you need Ziva Meditation. I now think more clearly, I’m much more alert, I look forward to my twice a day respite.”
“Emily’s work is good stuff. She’s up there with the A-players in the meditation world.”
“I am addicted to Ziva Meditation. I love how rejuvenated I feel afterwards. My recovery time is faster and I feel more grounded. Anxiousness I didn’t even know was there, is gone. My life has even more beauty and ease. Thank you.”
“I used to think, ‘I can’t ever quiet my mind, how can I learn to meditate?’ After the Ziva course I know that even if I am having thoughts, it is still working. Now it is a part of my daily ritual and people have noticed a change: they say, ‘you look so radiant!’”
“This practice is life-changing and I am grateful for the positive energy and instruction. Ziva is reshaping my life and I’m elated to see how things continue to transform.”
“Ziva has had such an impact on me personally, and our team at sweetgreen.”
“Thank you so very much for bringing Meditation to Barclays. The feedback we received was incredibly positive, everyone thoroughly enjoyed your scientific and verifiable approach to explaining the benefits of meditation.”
“Emily guided our entire company through a meditation session. Not only was it effective, it was also a lot of fun. Her approach is unique and totally accessible. I highly recommend Ziva to any company looking to up-level performance.”
Stress Less, Accomplish More: Meditation for Extraordinary Performance Published by Harper Collins in February 19, 2019
Foreword by Mark Hyman, MD Preface by Andrew Huberman, PhD You know you should be meditating, so what’s stopping you? This entertaining and enlightening book by the founder of Ziva Meditation—the favorite training for high achievers—will finally take meditation mainstream.
“We meditate to get good at life, not to get good at meditation.” —Emily Fletcher
In our high-stress, overworked lives, we think the answer to accomplishing more is to do more. But the best advantage we can give ourselves is to take a mental break—to spend a few minutes of the day giving the body and brain rest. Did you know that a brief meditation can offer rest that’s five times deeper than sleep? When you make time to practice the Z Technique this book teaches, you’ll actually be more productive than if you took an hour-and-a-half nap or had a cup of coffee.
A leading expert in meditation for high performance, Emily Fletcher has taught meditation at numerous global corporations, including Google, Barclays Bank, and Viacom, to help their employees improve their focus and increase their productivity levels. With Stress Less, Accomplish More, anyone can get the benefits of her 15-minute twice-daily plan. Emily specifically developed the Z Technique for working people with busy lives. Now, you can learn to recharge anywhere, anytime—at home or at your desk. All you need is a few minutes and a chair (no apps, incense, or finger cymbals required).
This is not just another meditation book. In Stress Less, Accomplish More, Emily teaches a powerful trifecta of Mindfulness, Meditation, and Manifesting to improve your personal and professional performance, clarity, health, and sleep. You’ll learn how to cultivate Mindfulness through brief but powerful exercises that will help you stop wasting time stressing. Plus, you’ll get Manifesting tools to help you get crystal clear on your personal and professional goals for the future.
Filled with fascinating real-life transformations, interactive exercises, and practical knowledge, Stress Less, Accomplish More introduces you to a revelatory daily practice and shows you how to make it work for your modern life.
Ziva’s mission is to give you the tools to perform at the top of your game. Enter: The Ziva Technique, a powerful trifecta of mindfulness, meditation and manifesting (aka making your dreams your reality), that not only has the power to uplevel your health, sleep and sex life, but help you kick a$$ at work and thrive at home. The Ziva Technique isn’t an app, it doesn’t require you to sit in lotus pose or burn incense. It is a trifecta of mental tools used by the world’s top performers. You learn the technique once by enrolling in our zivaLIVE or zivaONLINE courses, and then you’ve got a practice you can do on your own for life.
