The second I met Simone I knew there was something magical about her. I’ve suffered with anxiety for years but have never found anyone who made meditation seem remotely appealing. Simone makes everything she does; from yoga to nutrition to meditation, seem approachable, fun and constructive. She is the self-care guru 2018 is in desperate need of.
