Originally a little yoga studio with a big vision, All That Matters was founded in 1995 on Main Street in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, by Joan Dwyer and Jeanne Wettlaufer – two mothers passionate about yoga, meditation, nourishing food, healthy living, and world peace. With a yoga teacher, a massage therapist, and a few volunteers, All That Matters opened its doors and heart to welcome in the eager, local community.
Guided since 2005 by Joan Dwyer, All That Matters Yoga and Holistic Health Centers now offer more than 170 weekly yoga and meditation classes – plus workshops and professional trainings – in three Rhode Island locations: South Kingstown
, and East Greenwich
. The South Kingstown center includes a retail store
as well as health services
, from acupuncture and chiropractic to massage and spa treatments.
All That Matters’ successful and much loved program 40 Day (R)EVOLUTION
is a microcosm of what happens at the center: participants get excited about eating well, meditating, and moving their body; and they gain prana (energy) and clarity. “When people do this healing work in community with others who are supporting them,” Joan Dwyer says, “they really transform.”
All That Matters’ original mission – to educate, inspire, and support the community to continually grow toward and maintain optimal health and wellbeing – continues to direct the organization. Its statewide team is passionate about helping make the world a healthier place, one person, and one community at a time. As they often say, “Inner peace leads to world peace, and that is all that matters.”
