Stephanie Syd Yang


Syd Yang of Blue Jaguar Healing Arts is on a mission to transform eating disorder recovery into a practice of collective liberation so that all bodies may feel possible. free and loved. A queer mixed race, Taiwanese American healer + writer, Syd weaves together magic, possibility + intention in their work with individuals and small groups. For close to 20 years, Syd has been supporting healing + self acceptance in life-affirming ways, rooting deep into their cultural, ancestral and indigenous practices. The work and medicine they share with the world centers the voices and experience of queer, trans, non-binary folks of color and finds its resonance at the intersection of memory, bodies, sexuality and mental health.
