Workplace Wellbeing

Improving employee wellbeing through yoga & sound


To enquire about our programmes email Emma at:


More employers are realising that staff wellbeing isn’t just nice to have, it’s essential, especially in an increasingly competitive world and especially now post-Covid.


In the post-Covid world more of your employees are affected by job insecurity, bereavement, health anxiety and relationships stresses; perhaps they are no longer working in an office with the support of colleagues - all of this can negatively affect employee wellbeing and performance. 


Our wellbeing programmes range from simple relaxation or yoga sessions, to stress & anxiety management courses. They empower employees to reduce the impact of these stresses on their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. We explain what stress and anxiety are, the health implications, the difference between helpful and unhelpful stress and then we look at the SMBT method of stress and anxiety management developed by Emma Lowther-Wright. 


Our workplace yoga programmes, workplace wellbeing workshops, stress awareness seminars and workplace relaxation and meditation sessions are available online via Zoom and in-perosn within Lancashire, Liverpool and Manchester.


Emma’s ‘Running from Tigers’ Stress Awareness Workshop has received excellent reviews and incorporates science, management theory and practice and tips on how to recognise and manage acute and chronic stress.


Ongoing Programmes
Our ongoing programmes include two offerings which are unique to the area - Sound Relaxation and iRest yoga nidra, both of which promote relaxation, ease stress and anxiety, assist with chronic pain management and improve overall wellness. 

Emma has more than 20 years corporate workplace experience including 6 years at Director level. She combines neuroscience, management experience and extensive yoga and sound therapy training to create engaging and change-making workshops and workplace wellbeing programmes which address the needs of the business and employees.


The programmes will be enjoyed and valued as a benefit by your team so that you attract and retain the best talent, while also building key workplace competencies to improve competitive advantage.

Our innovative approach to applying yoga and sound in the workplace can improve.....

  • Teamwork - We teach yoga in a way that has everyone breathing and moving in synchronicity with each other. This builds mutual understanding, empathy and trust, which helps to build stronger more effective teams. The teaching emphasises non-judgement which builds stronger trust and honesty in teams. Sound sessions are taught in a way that builds more intuitive and empathetic communication and trust. The Soundbaths are highly effective at improving team cohesion and reducing conflict.
  • Creativity - The intelligent use of sound in Soundbaths activates more areas of the brain then any other activity. During a soundbath we create new neural connections, which enables us to find creative solutions to problems and opportunities. The yoga sessions emphasise non-expectation and non-attachment. This cultivates in teams an openness to new information and emerging threats and opportunities.
  • Focus - Soundbaths and mindful yoga improve focus so that employees are more accurate, creative and productive, making your organisation more competitive. 
  • Attendance - Physical pain (especially black pain) and stress are amongst the major causes of workplace absence. Soundbaths are highly effective at reducing stress and stress related conditions as well as at helping employees to take control of pain


Regular physical yoga classes are consistently shown to improve posture and reduce neck and back pain. Soundbaths and iRest yoga nidra are highly effective at empowering individuals to control and manage pain.
