Kendall Sheldon, a founding teacher of All That Matters’ yoga program (1995), comes from a family of yogis. Practicing with both her mother and uncle, and meeting Swami Kripalu set her on her path as a teenager. Certified by the Kripalu Center in 1980 and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Center in 1994, Kendall has been sharing yoga with students and clients for over 30 years. In 2009 she completed the advanced training in Integrative Restoration (iRest®) with Richard Miller, PhD – who developed this modern adaptation of the ancient meditation practice of yoga nidra. Kendall is also a senior teacher in the Pranotthan Yoga Teacher Training at All That Matters since 2013.
Kendall teaches yoga as a practice of self-inquiry that invites students to experience their greatest potential.

Mel Gorman Wegimont, E RYT 500, has been teaching transformative yoga classes for 11 years. She completed her 200-hour teacher training with Cathy Cesario of Spirit Tree Yoga and her 500-hour Prana Flow® teacher training with Coral Brown. She is trained in Restorative Yoga through Jillian Pransky, is a certified Reiki Master and a co-teacher in the Pranotthan 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. Mel’s journey with yoga has led her to study in Rishikesh, India and beyond. She regularly leads local workshops and trainings as well as yoga retreats around the world.
Mel became a student of yoga and the healing arts in 1999, when a friend brought her – one week after a breast-cancer diagnosis – to Kendall Sheldon's yoga class. In that first class Mel discovered the healing power of yoga, and today she is not only radiantly healthy but also joyfully sharing the healing benefits of yoga with students and mentoring others coping with cancer. Her practice and teaching are informed by study with numerous teachers, and her classroom setting is one of safe and sacred space where her students encounter a mixture of levity, reverence, and honesty as Mel guides them to their own experience of yoga. She encourages students to take their yoga – this practice of finding what they need in body, spirit, and heart – off their mats and into their lives.

Tara Beaulieu, E-RYT 200, is a graduate of the Pranotthan Yoga School through All That Matters. Her teachings are informed by extensive study of sacred texts, yogic philosophy, and modern-day yoga and movement modalities with teachers like Doug Keller and Trina Altman. She is trained in Deep Play for Kids, Yin Yoga and Meditation, Restorative Yoga, and is currently completing her 500-Hour teacher training with Alanna Kaivalya. Tara is also a teacher in the Pranotthan 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training.
A lifelong student of yoga and the arts, Tara’s practice is guided by her creative process: finding a balance between intuitive living and mindful action. Making the choice nearly 20 years ago to step out of the workforce and stay home with her three boys and pursue her art, she learned that the secret to living a consciously happy life is to practice listening to oneself. She believes that doing the work to make space for inner knowing, learning to trust instincts, and above all honoring personal truth paves a clear path for happiness in our lives. When we learn to interpret the signals that are inherent to our being (tuning in to our life force) we awaken an awareness and understanding that allows us to heal from within.
In addition to teaching yoga classes and leading retreats, Tara is a mother of 3 boys, a sea glass artist and silversmith.
