Anastasia Simone has practiced Ashtanga yoga with Noah Williams since 2000. She has also practiced with Sri K Pattahbi Jois, Tim Miller, and Eddie Stern. In 2017, driving home from practice, her car was hit by a distracted driver, and her right arm was nearly amputated. Saved by 14 hours of surgery, it is now held in place by 4 plates, and 13 screws. Her asana practice has since undergone radical transformation due to the limited range of her arm, she's taken all eight limbs of yoga deeper into her heart. She has studied, and taken vows with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and works as a Shamanic Clairvoyant energy healer via her platform, Magic of Intuition.
