Distillery opened in Couvet, Switzerland in 1797, it quickly remained more popular over wine amongst French soldiers as a disease preventative, but became a fashionable liquor amongst artists, writers, poets, and "Bohemia" of Paris.

The “Yana Difference” is best described as a proprietary methodology of training that delves into every aspect of a model’s presence. Perfecting the body language displayed by an individual’s style of movement, stance and gait requires skill and physical ability. Through the use of plyometric training, students are able to reach peak physical condition, while improving their posture. As a professional dance instructor, Yana incorporates the key elements of proper body alignment and controlled balance, into her training, giving a model a more elegant and confident appearance. Models are personally instructed by Yana on the various forms of high- fashion European style runway modeling. Yana assisted guest models feel more comfortable (as many first time) on the runway, while refreshing ursm models about their important points and focus. yanagerman.com

From event rep Melody Wiley: I truly believe your guests would be very interested in our company. Again, my sister, Stephanie, is one of my clients and a Lupus patient. Recently, after aggressive treatments to tame her symptoms, her skin began to show the negative effects from the medications; acne, blemishes, dark spots, etc...and she began to loose confidence in her appearance. Within 24 hours of using Arbonne's skincare line, she noticed, a brighter complexion. And her skin's texture and appearance improved within a week! And within 10 days, her skin was smoother, clearer, firmer, and brighter. Stephanie's testimony is very similar to the stories my Client's share with me everyday. And I'm so excited about the opportunity to share a product that can provide positive results. Also, with the holiday season creeping around the corner, our extensive holiday products are sure to help everyone with their holiday shopping.
