Integrated Lifestyle and Wellness (ILAW) Center
To address the total wellbeing of its employees, Miriam College established the Integrated Lifestyle and Wellness (ILAW) Center in 2006. The center, which is allied with the school’s Human Resources Division, provides programs and services that aim to educate, promote, and provide holistic health among the school's employees.
An integrated approach is espoused in ILAW, which encompasses the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual wellness of the individual. In Filipino, ILAW means light-a source of energy that can transform or create power and wellness, hence the center’s name.
The ILAW Center was made open to the public since July, 2007. Its services include individual counseling, group therapy, therapeutic massage, and seminar-workshops on various topics, such as enjoying midlife, anger management, caring for aging loved ones, creative solo parenting and talks on fatherhood, among others. The Center also houses a gym for cardiovascular conditioning and a massage clinic, which are open five days a week. Weekly cardiovascular activities such as Yoga, Zumba, Aerobics, and Ballroom Dancing, among others are also offered.
