About Studio Australia Barcelona

An oasis for caring for our clients and community

Get in touch

Our mission at Studio Australia Barcelona is to empower people’s lives by teaching them to understand their physical, emotional and spiritual health needs to enable them to live a disease and pain-free, longer life.

We are client driven not practitioner-driven and with our team of expert professional therapists, our focus is on creating personalized tailored programs combining a range of complementary holistic health and alternative medical treatments.

These practices include Pilates, osteopathy, physical therapy, massage, reiki, acupuncture, trigger point therapy and mysofascial release, kinesiology, The Ida Rolf Method, HypnoBirthing, Chi Gung, diet, naturopathy, nutrition, cleansing and detoxification programs, and colon hydrotherapy.

We give people a choice about how to care for their bodies.  How to be healthy, stay fit, eat well and when needed rehabilitate while balancing the day-to-day demands and challenges of work, life, and family.

Our wellness center in Barcelona is an oasis for caring for our clients and community.  Every detail is considered to ensure a memorable experience every time you visit.

The Founders

We followed our hearts

Studio Australia Barcelona wellness center in Barcelona was founded in 2005 by Mandy Keillor and Natalia Laing, four months after they migrated from Australia with 8 suitcases, 10 days of booked accommodation and their life savings.

Barcelona becomes our home

After visiting the city in 1992, Mandy, an entrepreneur and successful businesswoman, mother of two and former competitive bodybuilder, felt a powerful affinity with the magic of Barcelona and after returning in 2004 to celebrate her 40th birthday, Mandy felt an overwhelming need to make the city her home.

Discussing the opportunity of relocation with her partner Natalia, the couple decided to make the move. Natalia, a professional contemporary dancer, model, actress and one of the original founders of the Pilates method in Australia, and who is renowned for her rehabilitative skills as a Pilates instructor, had always dreamed of living and working in Europe.  This fateful decision was the first step of their own integrated mind, body, soul journey, a joy and passion they would soon deliver to others.

They have over 50 years of experience together in dance, fitness, health and wellness.

Both are passionate about the body, in particular how diet, exercise, emotions and state of mind affect our physiological health and wellbeing.

Studio Australia Barcelona is a culmination of their collective passions.  In her past career, Mandy was a professional designer and builder, drawing on these well-honed skills, she has created a built environment that reflects the very soul, energy and ethos of the business. The ambiance is warm, sophisticated and very peaceful. A spirit of relaxation and safety embraces you as you walk through the door.

The center is the place to leave the stresses of day to day living behind and enjoy being cared for by the finest therapists in multi-disciplinary holistic and complementary health practices.

Studio Australia Barcelona stands as a highly regarded holistic health oasis, dedicated to tailoring care programs for individual clients, whilst generating a community spirit, ensuring that the needs of all who enter the center are fully taken care of physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Pilates as a way of life

Once you have enriched your body with Pilates it becomes a lifestyle.

The wonderful thing is that it only gets better as you grow older and your body responds to the practice with less effort and more understanding.

Some of the veteran teachers who have been instructing for decades merely need 20 minutes to maintain their flexibility, tone and posture and remain injury free because they have trained their bodies to a point where the memory is home for the muscles.

Even after a break of months or years, you will find that your body will respond after several classes and you will see the changes as you get your Pilates body back!

This safe intelligent form of exercise is recommended to all ages and body types as well as the sick or those who are at their peak performance because it can be adapted by good Pilates professionals to suit all circumstances to maintain fitness, good posture, core abdominal and muscle strength and a healthy pain-free body.
