Pilates Instructor

About Simone Amps

I’ve been working for Katie Bell Physio since 2017 and am a Pilates/Barre Instructor, and Dance Choreographer. Pilates has been in my life since I began Professional Dance training at the age of sixteen years old. Under the direction of Conchita del Campo, it was there I began the understanding and importance of movement patterns in looking after your body, keeping healthy and nourished in all areas. I love working at Katie Bell because we all have the same passion for looking after our wellbeing, as well as building a strong community ethos as we work together towards the same shared goals of moving, living and feeling better. Every day working here is a good one!

My performance Career was an intense one with at times, having to work through several injuries, and even now being a Choreographer and teacher, for me, the mind and body connection is an essential one. I love to look after people and I encourage everyone in my classes to get to know their body as we aim to flourish together. I split my time between the two worlds and love all aspects of my job very much. I’m is passionate about helping people to understand their bodies better, become pain free and be able to be the best they can be! I also love working with pre and post natal ladies on their journey.

As a freelancer I am very lucky to mix both the Dance and Health Industries together. I get to work with so many different establishments, as well as running my own Wellbeing Practice. Every day is different and presents new and exciting challenges. I love working in the community with a vast range of clients, enabling people on their Journey recovering from injury and assisting them to be the best they can be.
