Andrea Gomez

Throughout my journey as a dancer, I have immersed myself in the rich tapestry of Latin cultures, knowing a diverse range of styles such as salsa, merengue, bachata, and more. With each step and sway, I find joy in connecting with the rhythms that pulsate through my veins, creating moments of pure bliss on the dance floor.

In addition to my love for dance, I recently embarked on a new path as a cacao facilitator. Inspired by the ancient traditions of indigenous cultures, I have embraced the transformative power of cacao ceremonies to facilitate healing, connection, and personal growth. As a facilitator, I am committed to creating sacred spaces where individuals can journey inward, tap into their inner wisdom, and experience profound shifts in consciousness.

I am thrilled at the prospect of bringing my passion for dance and cacao to your community, and I am eager to contribute my skills and enthusiasm to your endeavors.

Constina Alston-Howley

I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years. For me, my practice began as a way to escape the stress of corporate America and to get a good stretch in before or after cardio. But truth be told, I kept returning to the mat/studio because after each class I felt more grounded-connected to my true self. On and off the mat, I make a conscious effort to be authentic in my words as well a my actions, and I encourage others to do the same. I emphasize the importance of aligning breath with movement; finding stillness and expression in the mind; connecting with one's own energy.
