2021 Physical Wellbeing LIVE! Day
In this second in a series of LIVE! Days for 2021, we bring you a programme of webinars exploring the role of companies in promoting and supporting the physical wellbeing of their employees
The concept of employee wellbeing has evolved in recent years. Beyond a pure focus on work-life balance, it requires a more holistic approach that encompasses a focus on work-life harmony, physical wellbeing, emotional wellbeing, and financial wellbeing.
Throughout 2021, we are presenting a series of 3 LIVE! Days - a programme of webinars on each of these themes broadcast via our Asia Employee Wellbeing Virtual Platform:
- Work-Life Harmony LIVE! Day: Friday 23 April 2021
- Physical Wellbeing LIVE! Day: Friday 16 July 2021
- Emotional Wellbeing LIVE! Day: Friday 8 October 2021
With webinars designed for different audiences – from employee wellbeing, HR and D&I professionals to general employees, we invite you to participate in these LIVE! Days to discover new ways to promote a culture of wellbeing in your organisation.

Holistic Performance Psychologist and Breath Specialist, Tri Peaks Performance
Her main focus is to reset, regulate, and recharge the way your nervous system interacts with your mind and body to overcome subconscious blockages from old habit patterns and trauma. Using your breathing mechanics and the psychology of breath as the main foundation of emotional and physical release, she thrives to empower and give you the tools and exercises needed to optimise your fullest potential.
You will regain your control of your emotional, mental and physical states through self-awareness, self- and co-regulation, and cognitive reframing. Working with both individuals and couples, she helps you get to the root of your pain, release tension and conflict, and help shift maladaptive patterns into positive adaptive patterns.
Astrid’s “Therapy Reinvented” supports your growth and healing with a holistic mind and body framework that can be taken outdoors and off the sofa. The modalities Astrid applies in therapy include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and a polyvagal approach to treat mental illness and other challenges we face in life. Her breath therapy sessions look at your breathing biomechanics and patterns to help you harness the power of your breath to elevate your performance and gain confidence to succeed.
Her motto is to “Become the CEO of your own life”.
