Hi, I’m Andriana! I’m a Toronto-based yoga/meditation teacher and marketing specialist.
I created BYS from my struggle to find other Black people in healing spaces after a decade of practice. I wanted an open, no-judgment space to meet other Black movement workers, intuitive healers, and esoteric experts.
When the group started, I noticed the roadblocks many professionals faced with promoting their services. I also realized my struggle to find these professionals wasn’t just a “me” problem. I knew there had to be an easier way. I created the directory soon after to help bridge these gaps in the space.
BYS garnered over 350 community members in just one month! My hope is to connect you with resources and opportunities for beginning or continuing your internal journey!
