    CHANGEMAKER: Lisa Taylor, Evolution Power Yoga

    Q: Why is it rewarding and critical to empower others?

    A : I love to see others become a spark or a starter of community building. I see when they go through the classes and trainings at Evolution, confidence builds and a personal creativity grows. Who wants to live alone at the top of nothing? Without others bringing their fullest to life, there is little for ourselves to be inspired by. We all create uniquely; I learn and am inspired by appreciating the offering of others.


    Q: What is it about the practice of yoga that can enrich people around you?

    A : Through our nonprofit, AIM to Empower, we offer yoga to inmates at the Lancaster County Prison at no cost. These individuals, as well as anyone who practices our style of yoga, have tools that give them access to being honest with themselves so they can be personally accountable for who they are in the world and how their lives impact others.
