Welcome. I am so happy and grateful that you are here. I am Pam Rader, a Certified Strategic Intervention Life Coach, professional leadership development facilitator, yoga teacher, author, and entrepreneur. I am here to help you discover and re-connect to your power. It is my greatest pleasure to lead people to elevated levels of self-awareness and create a willingness to take new actions that lead to living their most fulfilled and purposeful lives.
By weaving my unique background in yoga, leadership, facilitation, and spiritual study along with some profound life lessons into my coaching, I help you move beyond any current barriers and into thriving in your relationships, your work, and life.
I’ve had a passion for empowering people for as long as I can remember. I have worked in the medical field, as a yoga teacher, and as a mentor in many capacities prior to my work as a coach. I currently work with individuals, entrepreneurs, teachers, leaders, and organizations who have a desire to exceed themselves and to tap into the limitless potential that awaits those courageous enough to seek it. I know that support is an imperative part of any journey into uncharted territory. I will be with you each step of the way.
After surviving an abusive marriage, a second divorce, and witnessing the unfolding of what would become a devastating heroin addiction in my son, I knew that I needed guidance. I took a leap, scraped up every penny I had, (even borrowed some from my parents), and went to a week-long intensive training with world-renowned Yoga Teacher and New York Times bestselling author, Baron Baptiste in 2010. After immersing myself in deeply moving work that totally transformed my body, mind, and spirit I was inspired to help others experience the freedom that I gained access to.
I have continued to train with Baptiste Yoga since that first experience and have made it my life’s work to contribute to the betterment of the human experience. Always a student and an avid learner, I have been privileged to attend many leadership development programs led by some of the world's greatest teachers including Tony Robbins, Suzanne Conrad, and Bob Proctor. In 2016 I enrolled in the Robbins-Maddanes Strategic Intervention Coaching certification program and my career quickly expanded beyond the yoga mat and out into the world.
I have created thriving yoga communities throughout western Canada and am the owner of Shift Power Yoga, co-owner of Shift Power Yoga Vancouver, and the founder and CEO of Shift Labs Inc. I own and operate a successful and highly rated yoga teacher training school that focuses on leadership development and have trained hundreds of powerful leaders who are making a difference on the planet. I live my dream life in the beautiful Okanagan on an acreage with my husband, my three goats, and two dogs. I have rewarding relationships with my four adult children and live each day with a full heart. All of this is possible because I took a leap of faith.
Are you ready to take yours?
It is pure delight for me to wholeheartedly recommend Pam Rader. I have participated in her yoga teacher training programs, retreats, workshops and the SCL facilitator course. Every encounter with Pam has resulted in life changing transformations for me. I went from barely surviving medicine to being co-founder of a weekend workshop for physicians designed to promote more ease, joy and support in the practice of medicine. As a surgeon I am most interested in actionable steps and working with Pam gave me workable and trustworthy tools that lead me to experience more freedom and power in my life in addition to more meaningful connection with others. Words are inadequate to express the extent to which Pam's offerings are an investment in yourself and humanity.
I've had the pleasure of doing workshops and courses, a retreat, personal coaching, and many yoga classes with Pam Rader and Shift. Each experience has had a direct positive impact on my life. I've made life long friendships, figured out where my passions lie, and seen what is possible in my life when I do the work. Shift is such an amazing and welcoming community. I would love to invite everyone to come and experience what's possible.

“Inspiring, mind blowing, next level, life changing...these are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Shift Coaching and Leadership Programs. "
Shift Coaching and Leadership programs are some of the best investments I have ever made and they are truly an investment in myself!
Shift programs are eye opening and have allowed me to shine a light on areas of my life where I once felt stuck and transform what seemed like struggle into new possibilities. These programs have given me powerful tools that have lead me to take action and create positive changes in my life. I have used the tools from these programs to transform my personal life, into a life I never dreamt possible. A life I choose, filled with love, connection, truth, possibility, adventure and abundance. Professionally, I’ve implemented the program teachings and tools into the workplace. With a focus on making real, meaningful impacts in the lives of others, I have consequently watched my career catapult to the next level. I’ve had the courage and self confidence to take bold steps and make changes in my career that have now lead me into an executive leadership role. "
Working with Pam has been a game changer for me. I felt overwhelmed, stuck and unappreciated. I didn't like my job and was flailing in many of my relationships. Nothing was going right. Choosing to work with Pam seemed like a BIG decision at the time. Looking back, my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! Everything in my life started to shift for the better when I started working with her. Pam has supported me, encouraged me and helped me reveal what was in the way of living with more happiness. My relationships are so much better and everyone around me wants to know what I am doing because I smile so much these days! If you are looking to change your life in the best way possible working with Pam is a no-brainer!
