Alexandria and anastasia duval_ former partner describes life with the twins

THE one-time boyfriend of a woman allegedly murdered by her identical twin has given a chilling new insight into the siblings’ “toxic”, chaotic relationship.

American exercise gurus Alexandria and Anastasia Duval (aka Alison and Ann Dadow), achieved international notoriety earlier this year after Alexandria was charged with murdering Anastasia by intentionally driving their SUV off a cliff in Hawaii.

Charges were initially dropped against the 38-year-old, who then fled to upstate New York, but were reinstated two weeks ago following the emergence of unspecified new evidence.

Eyewitnesses who had been driving behind the sisters told investigators the pair appeared to be engaged in a physical fight and that Anastasia (who was in the front passenger seat) could be seen pulling her sister’s hair in the seconds before the fatal plunge.


For Keith Weiss, hearing those details was like déjà vu; he had experienced first hand what it was like to ride in a car while the warring twins were in full flight and it had been terrifying.

The fatal crash followed years of failed business ventures, personal bankruptcies and moves for the sisters, who first made a name for themselves as yoga instructors in Florida.

As Alison and Ann Dadow, they founded Twin Power yoga, setting up their first studio in Palm Beach Gardens in 2008 and opening a second in West Palm Beach in 2011.

“They were alpha females on top of being twins on top of being very dominating,’’ personal trainer Victor Ayala, who worked at a gym on the same floor as the twins, told The Palm Beach Post.

West Palm Beach psychic Leslie McMichael, who claimed to have acted as the twins’ spiritual adviser, told The Associated Press the show’s axing contributed significantly to their spiral into debt.

Bizarrely, they kept their business name, opening a Twin Power yoga studio in the picturesque mountain resort town of Park City but changing their names to the more theatrical sounding Alexandria and Anastasia Duval.

Park City locals were intrigued by the striking, identical blondes and business was initially good but once the novelty wore off, the cracks in their relationship began to show.

Former students at the Park City studio say classes with their pair were excruciating, with the sisters issuing rapid and conflicting instructions.

“They were teaching at the same time, speaking over one another really fast: ‘Do this, lift your arm, lower your left arm’. Yin yoga hip openers It was honestly one of the most bizarre yoga experiences I had ever had.

“I did hear other students say that they had some similar experiences to me, where they were just bizarre and chaotic and disorganised,” she said.
