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.
