Impacting lives through Yoga, Mindfulness and Connection since 2016.
AIM to Empower is a 501(c) nonprofit organization.
We believe everyone deserves access to the tools of self-regulation attained through a consistent yoga & mindfulness practice.
At AIM to Empower, we're on a mission to ensure that yoga's transformative power isn't reserved for a select few.
Yoga is an inclusive practice that benefits minds and bodies of all ages and abilities. According to the National Institutes of Health, scientific evidence shows that yoga supports stress management, mental health, mindfulness, healthy eating, weight loss quality sleep and more.
Our trauma-informed programs take place in underserved communities throughout Central Pennsylvania who wouldn't otherwise have access to the benefits of yoga - financially, geographically or otherwise.
Since the inception of Evolution Power Yoga in late 2001, our teachers have followed their passion to bring the transformative and healing tools of yoga to those within their community who were in need. This effort formalized in 2016 as A.I.M. to Empower and received 501c3 status in late 2018.
About our name:
A is for Asana (yoga poses)
I is for Inquiry (introspection)
M is for Meditation (mindfulness)
Rooted in the Baptiste methodology, these three techniques—Asana, Inquiry, and Meditation—are the pathway to transform and empower lives.
Our non-discrimination policy:
Inclusivity, diversity and non-judgement are at the core of our mission. It is both our passion and policy to be inclusive within our organization's leadership, workforce, and to those whom we serve and partner. We do not differentiate or discriminate on the basis of gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, color, financial ability, national origin, religion, creed, age, disability, citizenship, marital or domestic partner status, military or veteran status, legal status, addiction status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law, rule or regulation. AIM to Empower explicitly opposes all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. We are committed to reviewing this policy on a regular basis to insure that our actions are aligned with these goals and that we have created a culture that offers dignity, respect and a safe space for all.
Our Current Programs
with the Practice of Yoga
A.I.M. to Empower builds community and connection through partnerships. We take yoga outside of the studio and bring it to organizations that serve early childhood education, mental health, prison systems, addiction recovery, youth intervention, senior citizens, transitional housing and more. Our outreach programs take place throughout Lancaster, York and Harrisburg - always at no charge to our partners or the participants. Want to partner with AIM? Contact us!
