The Mind Body Lab

Mind Body Sign

Our Mission and Vision

Founded in the fall of 2013 by Dr. Laura Dybdal, the University of Montana Mind Body Lab is a self-paced environment designed to help students, faculty and staff explore various resources for improving their Mind-Body-Spirit health. It is also designed to explore the holistic connection between these three elements, as well as continuously fostering resilience and mindfulness on campus. We offer research opportunities, open classes, speakers and other resources to inspire self-exploration and learning. Come check it out in McGill Hall, room 114.

What We're All About

We have an ongoing Mindful Resilience Training Program for UM Veterans, including weekly classes for yoga and meditation as well as social support groups geared specifically for veterans. In addition, we offer weekly classes on meditation, mindfulness and yoga for all students and faculty. Please see the calendar page for more information.

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student and have an interest in the mind-body connection, or would like to become involved in the Mind Body lab research, please feel free to stop by or contact us!
