General Questions
When did A.I.M. to Empower form?

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.

Why does A.I.M. to Empower exist?

We are a group that has experienced the life-changing benefits of Baptiste Yoga. We see a need in our community for others to gain access to the same life-changing opportunities and endeavor to make the tools of yoga available to anyone who wants to make a difference in their lives.

Why does the A.I.M to Empower board volunteer their service?

Our board comes with a passion gained through a personal experience of applying the life-changing tools of Baptiste Yoga to their own lives and experiencing the power and magic of transformation. They bring the skills of an accomplished professional in a coordinated effort to make a change within the communities in which they live and work. Our board is functional, each member doing the work it takes to make a difference for others.

What makes A.I.M. to Empower different from other charity organizations?

What kind of training do A.I.M. to Empower guides have?

Those who lead the participants in our programs are called guides. Each guide has experienced the transformative, life-changing power of yoga for themselves and feels inspired to share with others.
