here's my story
Nice to meet you!
I’m Erin Anderson, a transformational coach here to help you tap into your true power. I lead people to awareness and agency so they can live fulfilled lives on purpose. I focus on three key commitments:
By weaving my background in brand and design, yoga, leadership and spirituality into my coaching, I help you dig in and push past the barriers that are holding you back in your work and life.
I’ve had a passion for transformational leadership for the past 25 years.
I work with teachers, leaders, healers and entrepreneurs to help them get clarity for themselves, their brand and their organization.
This wasn't something I went to school for.
I was raised to believe that education is available in all forms; through travel, service, heartbreaks, sports, tragedies, and successes.
I'm grateful for my parents' mindset since formal education was not where I thrived.
Where I’ve always thrived and come alive are with people. I knew from an early age that I loved digging in with people, hearing their stories, listening deeply, asking questions to understand them fully. I leaned in. But since there wasn't a major in intuitive listening at university, I left my formal education early and headed west to the mountains.
Whistler, BC has been my home since my messy twenties. I bootstrapped my way into a fulfilling career as a graphic designer. I hunted down the best mentor I could find and I stuck with her for 17 years. I became the most well-rounded designer I could be - refining the skills of project and account management while executing designs that converted sales.
After giving birth to my second child, I found myself drooling on the couch not knowing how to get up. Knowing that I needed something to get me out of a deep postpartum funk, I accidentally found Baptiste Yoga. Their homepage video showed people connecting, crying, sweating and trust-falling. I was hooked.
I packed my bags, emptied out the coffers and went on a week-long training in Mexico. I said yes to 15 hour days for a week with non-stop sweating, chaturangas and deep self-discovery. This was just the kind of reboot I needed.
Since that fateful week in 2009 I didn’t stop training with Baron Baptiste for 10 years. My life has been forever changed as a result of the deep work, high flame coaching and precision leadership skills I was given.
I applied my learning with the Baptiste Institute by opening the doors to White Gold Yoga. This studio in my home began as a passion project but quickly turned into a thriving business that I ran for 8 years.
My yoga journey has been the best education I could have. I learned how to find my center, the power of my voice, and the essence of contribution.
Since 2009 I received my 500 hour certified yoga teacher certificate, and began running Yoga Teacher Trainings with an emphasis on Leadership Development.
The road of self-awareness led me directly to the best of the best, Susanne Conrad of Lightyear Leadership. I began training with her in 2011 and have since been certified as a Senior Lightyear Leadership Coach.
Today I remember why I started, to help people connect with their truest calling and to sing their song for the world to hear. The most powerful feeling is to be a contribution to the world while putting out great work that matters.
As author, speaker, teacher Wayne Dyer once said, “Don’t die with your music still in you.”
It’s time to Live Big, your way!
