The Mind Body Lab (MBL) at the PCC is designed with the objective of enhancing mindfulness by providing tools to manage stress and increase personal resilience.
The room provides self-guided training on mindful meditation and heart rate variability biofeedback, as well as a number of other beneficial mind body practices.
In addition to our digital resources (mindfulness and resilience tracks, guided breathing exercises, Apps, TED talks, etc.), MBL users can practice yoga, meditation, and receive psychoeducation in the soothing atmosphere of the room.
The MBL has a number of helpful online resources available here. Many other self-regulatory techniques need users to book the room. Importantly, the room allows for one user at the time.
