yoga teacher training

Has yoga made a difference in your life? Would you like to share the gifts you have received from your practice with others? Or are you drawn to simply go deeper into cultivating presence and awareness in all that you do?

All That Matters is proud to offer the Pranotthan School of Yoga's comprehensive, inspired and transformational teacher training with Devarshi Steven Hartman and our own senior teachers and guest faculty. A passage of self-awakening in the fundamentals of yoga, this program is designed to deepen and clarify your experience and knowledge of yoga while you train to become a confident, skillful and compassionate teacher.

Immerse yourself fully in the yogic tools of asana, pranayama and meditation. In this training you learn how to bring awareness to movement and breath in a way that is right for your body, your limitations, your strengths, your age – in other words, you discover the yoga that is right for you. Learn how to bring the experience, depth, and benefits of yoga to your students in an inspiring, creative, safe format.

We put emphasis on how to embody the teacher, so you’ll walk away with a heightened ability to be the most dynamic, energetic, informed and inspired teacher that you can be. 

“YTT thought me to live life consciously from a place of witness consciousness, meditation, connecting to my authentic self and shedding that which no longer served me in my life. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.” ~ SP

Our Community

This training offers you a place in a rich and meaningful community that provides a safe and sacred place to learn, grow and to be witnessed and supported. You'll become a member of a well established yoga community that will be with you for the rest of your life.

“The confidence I gained and the friendships I made were the most valuable part of the training.” ~CB

Self Empowerment

This program is designed to deepen all facets of your relationship with yoga and the world around you. You will be encouraged to cultivate an embodied sense of self and purpose through the practice of living your yoga in all ways, body mind and spirit.

“The emotional component of the training was most valuable. The exercises at times were difficult, but what was needed to authenticate myself.” ~ JA
