Why partner with Waterbear Planet?


Whether you're planning on working from home for the months to come, or charting a course back to the office, our team is here to help every step of the way through our class and executive packages. Together, we'll work to identify the drivers of stress within your organization and make plans to reduce them over time, by helping you take your workplace wellbeing culture to the next level.

  • When it comes to prioritizing stress management and self-care to avoid negative work and life experiences, management must lead on this by providing ample resources, encouragement and behavior modeling. We provide a framework for doing this which is easy to implement through our class programming.
  • Our class packages offer immediate stress relief and self-care support for you and your employees as we embark on our journey together (see class packages below).
  • Additionally, together we'll dive into developing a unique stress management program, tailored to you. We'll assess your current workplace wellbeing culture, discover the energy leaks within your organization and help you to clean those up by identifying and executing a plan to reduce stress within your organization.
  • Finally, you can create a unique culture of wellbeing that emphasizes the importance of the nature connection for stress management and self-care. We provide a direct way to link your employee wellbeing initiatives directly to your ESG initiatives, and by doing so, you'll drive more participation. We'll work with you to bring your current initiatives into alignment so they integrate seamlessly with your messaging and partnerships. If you're looking to do something new, we'll help you to develop that as well.




How does taking care of your employees impact your bottom line?


  • Employees who thrive are better for business because they are more productive and drive higher profitability.
  • According to Gallup, employees who are engaged at work but not thriving in their personal lives are 61% more likely to experience burnout, 48% more likely to experience stress and 66% more likely to experience worry throughout their days, with double the rate of sadness and anger of those employees who are thriving in life.
  • Additionally, the business teams that are most actively engaged perform better than those that are the least engaged, and can generate 20% more in sales, are 21% more profitable, with 41% lower absenteeism, up to 59% lower turnover, 17% higher productivity, and 10% higher customer ratings ( It's the Manager from Gallup).
  • In these intense times, by taking care of your employees, encouraging stress reduction, and taking steps to improve team engagement within the workplace, you can avoid the costs to your company that include burnout (loss of productivity), turnover (the cost to replace an employee being up to 33% of their annual salary), and losing sales (jeopardizing valued customer relationships).




What types of class packages are available?


  • public class tickets
  • semi-private, 30 minute Lunch Xpress class subscriptions
  • employee memberships
  • private workshops + classes
Packages can be customized to your organization's unique needs and priorities.




Why prioritize wellbeing, when things are so uncertain?


  • Therefore, prioritzing (and investing in) your wellbeing culture, is absolutely essential to navigating these changes as an organization, so your employees are able to show up to work as their best selves. Just speaking to the importance of wellbeing, but not putting concrete initiatives in place to support this, will feel empty to your team. Therefore, it is key that your wellbeing initiatives be both led and promoted from the executive suite, in tandem with individual, employee participation.​​​




Why oasis online?


When your employees are actively encouraged to prioritize their personal wellbeing and given permission to choose the ways they best can support themselves, they'll experience less burnout, better productivity, healthier professional relationships and more enthusiasm about staying with your organization. oasis online ℠ provides a turnkey program to put this intention into action by offering:

  • Immediate relief from stress and the effects of burnout. Each live class provides the structure (and immersion) many people need to actually receive the benefits of mindfulness, quality personal time, and relaxation during a busy workweek.
  • Personal choice in how they use their class time (to rest, journal, meditate, stretch, work on a creative project). Research suggests that individual choice and agency is a key component to experiencing work recovery. Learn more from our friends at Workr Beeing about work recovery here.​​​​
