Andrea X is the Creator of Women Of Color Healing Retreats and the Co-Founder of the Women of Color Healing Retreats Center in Costa Rica. She believes in manifesting our desired lives. She feels most comfortable in nature and her life’s philosophy is anchored in the understanding that the Earth heals us. Andrea is a healer, a student and a teacher. She believes that it is our duty to uplift black and brown communities. She feels closest to the Earth in her work with yoga, meditation, and ancestral healing. Andrea believes in the ways that the power of Pan- Africanist politics combined with African Spirituality can help a black human life blossom. As a result, she is dedicated to having women love themselves unconditionally. Her ultimate goal is to cultivate a safe space for women and children of color to thrive on their individual life and spiritual journey.
Andrea understands that before all of us become who we are, a childhood is our launching place. She is of the belief that a fun, grounded, and safe childhood leads to healthy, and loving adults. In the spirit of that belief, she has also created the first Free Kids of Color Yoga & Arts program for children living in underserved neighborhoods in the tri-state area. Herself a former New York City kid, Andrea relishes in the ability to impact her community as she intimately understands the hardships that children in black and brown communities face. In her spare time, Andrea enjoys riding her bike through the jungle, cooking with new vegan recipes, reading, photography, floating in the ocean, creating beautiful moments and talking about black liberation. She is currently living in Costa Rica.
