Welcome to Mind, Body and Movement Studio.  Our Helensburgh studio specialises in Callanetics MAE Technique classes as well as Barre Floor.  New Pilates classes also coming soon.  We look foward to welcoming you to our customized studio where you can relax and focus on your mind, body, fitness and well being.  We offer small group, individual classes and weekend bootcamps.  

The studio was founded by Susan Moore.  She trained as a professional dancer graduating with dance and teaching qualifications from the Royal Academy of Dance and The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.  She established herself as a teacher and lecturer training children and students on various professional dance and musical theatre courses in schools and colleges in Glasgow.  Susan holds her Teaching Diploma with The Royal Academy of Dance, Certificate in Dance Education with The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing and Post Graduate Certificate in Further Education.  While training as a dancer Susan was introduced to Callanetics MAE Technique and loved how effectively it could change and strengthen the body in a similar way as dance training.  Susan completed her teacher training with master teacher Mary Adams and is now a qualified teacher of Callanetics MAE Technique. She continues to expand the studio provision having completed her Barre Floor training and is also working toward Pilates Certification.  She looks forward to sharing these effective body shaping classes in the studio.  Classes are for all ages and fitness levels. 

Amy Speed-Andrews teaches yoga at the studio and has been teaching Yoga for over 15 years. She initially completed her 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training with Balanced Yoga in Columbus Ohio, and since then has completed additional specialised training in the USA and Canada in Ashtanga Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Yoga for Cancer Survivors. Amy has been involved in Sport and Exercise for most of her life both as an athlete and academically. She also has a graduate degree in Physical Activity and Health Behaviour, following which she completed a fellowship in Exercise Oncology where her research focused on Yoga to improve disease outcomes and quality of life in breast cancer survivors. Amy is extremely interested in mental health and how yoga can be used to manage stress and anxiety alongside other mental health conditions.  She is currently completing training in Trauma informed Yoga and looks forward to applying the principles learnt to her classes at the Mind Body and Movement Studio.
