About Briya

Briya Freeman is a spiritual teacher and facilitator based in Ottawa, Canada.

She is passionate about helping others on their journey of healing and spiritual awakening, and is known for an approach that is down-to-earth, intuitive and deeply-seated.

Her primary inspiration comes from nearly 20 years of study and practice in the traditions of yogic science, meditation, Hatha Yoga, mysticism, shamanism and Ayurveda, a holistic science of self-healing. 

She is a long-term student under the guidance of Berdhanya Swami Tierara, a South American shaman, mystic and spiritual teacher (2010-present) who remains a foundational influence in her work.
