First Impressions began in 1998, as a confirmation of my personal healing with cancer, re-inventing lifestyle, career changes, and single parenthood. My passion is helping others to change old belief systems that they may have about themselves; it is my testimony that a quality of life can be taught and expressed. First Impressions is dedicated to the education, social development and creative expression for youth and adults of all ages who are facing cancer or other extremely challenging health issues. This workshop, or a workshop series can be conformed to fit your scheduling needs. Learn the 5 A’s of success. Through education, fitness secrets, and fashion development you will be able to Live your “A” Game. First Impression’s is a program that is being sponsored through Ziploid Foundation.org and is held in Sebastopol at the Dharma Studio.
