Who Is Paula Pyne?

Paula Pyne is a mindful leadership coach, teacher and writer— the visionary behind Uplift Consulting. She is known to her clients as an inspiration and a catalyst for long-term, positive, mindful change. Over the years, with commitment and discipline and passion for continuous learning, Paula used several tools to heal herself. Now she helps others do the same, while leading the way to influence change on a much larger scale.

With a fascination for the human psyche, Paula elected to take her undergraduate studies in psychology and sociology. After being employed in the field of Social Work, Paula was drawn to the world of business. This move was accompanied by a return to school where she earned her  Masters of Business Administration in Executive Management at Royal Roads University and post-graduate diploma in Human Resources Management at Humber College. With a grounding in the humanities and the drive of a businesswoman, Paula began to carve out a niche.

Paula found her passion as the President of the General Motor’s Women’s Advisory Council. She loved leading, inspiring, connecting, and helping women who were facing similar issues and opportunities. On a corporate level, she was energized as the women gained greater visibility through networking and mentoring opportunities. This experience solidified her belief that surrounding yourself with positive, like-minded people and role models is the key to success.

It was during this time that Paula began turning what she had learned about herself into inspiration for others. She began developing tools to guide others towards living with purpose. Always looking and reaching for the next great thing to accomplish, Paula focused on the “art of being” and caring for oneself.

Paula’s approach to self-development is a unique blend of Yoga and Business. With the principles of both in mind, Paula intuitively tailors her work to each person. In her words, “I know now that what I am doing is what I’m meant to do – sharing, connecting, relating, inspiring, educating, and leading others on how to do the same. I help people; it’s what I love to do. I have many tools in my treasure chest simply waiting for you to arrive.”

Outside of Uplift, Paula shares her wisdom and compassionate spirit online as part of the Huffington Post community.

Paula is an accredited Hatha Yoga Teacher and Canadian Yoga Alliance member. She teaches weekly at Metta Message and Yoga Clinic. She is also certified as a Birkman Consultant and in 2011, was recognized as a leader by the Hot Mommas Project which aims to provide positive entrepreneurial role models for young business women.
