When Emma Murray talks about tigers, she's referring to either the metaphorical fear that stokes our caveman-like 'fight or flight' survival instincts – or our beloved Richmond Tigers, whose 2017 premiership success was credited to her work as the club's high-performance mindfulness coach. We were absolutely thrilled to spend an hour digging into E…
