Workshop Series and Karma Project


The Karma Project is Balance Everywear's way to bring people together to support health and community.  Karma class format will vary each session with a maximum of six participants per class.  Classes are drop-in and are by donation.  We encourage you to bring a friend and support your community.

Your donations for 2017 December Karma Project classes are in support of It Takes a Village - Okotoks                        


When you come to class, please bring a one of the items or cash to donate to one of our families.  

We have adopted two families and will be needing the following: diapers for girls (size 3 & 5), gift cards for Walmart & grocery stores, baby bouncer chair, books & toys for 8 month girl. We will also be accepting cash donations and able to purchase the items on your behalf. 


Thank you for supporting these families in our community!

We met Kaitlyn at a pop-up during the summer and were instantly drawn in by her beautiful presence.  She is a 2nd grade teacher in Calgary and once you meet her, you'll understand why the 7 and 8 year olds simply love her.  

Whether you understand the special purpose of malas or you just think they are "pretty", please join us in our first workshop.  

You can see more of Kaitlyn's work on her Etsy website: Mountain Stone Jewelry

Andrea is a breathe of fresh air.  She provides clear insight and focuses on teaching and educating her clients so they grow taller, stronger and provides the opportunities to live healthier lives through movement. 

 Here's what she says on her website:

"There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing clients improve their mindfulness, body awareness, posture, alignment, strength, flexibility, physical health and fitness. I believe in teaching Pilates foundations to clients in the studio… so they know how to integrate these principles into their everyday active life.

I strive to find fresh and engaging ways to maintain my own physical fitness, flexibility, and core strength and share this with my clients. I believe that having fun at what you are doing is the key to success!

I practice everything I teach. I enjoy cycling, swimming, surfing, skating, skiing and time spent with my two young daughters and my husband. And, I intend to keep up this active lifestyle until I am very old! I am addicted to movement and with Andrea Dean Pilates and Movement, you will be too."

 Our Karma Project Charity for Spring 2017

The Walk-In Closet provides 90-minute individual consultations on professional business attire to women facing financial barriers who want to join the work force, return to school or engage in volunteer opportunities. In addition to information on business culture and appropriate dress, participants are offered gently used clothing and accessories at no cost to help them look and feel their best.

My Best Friend’s Closet is a youth empowerment program at Making Changes. It provides teenaged girls from low-income households with clothing and accessories to meet their school and recreational needs for the upcoming year – all at no cost to their families. My Best Friend’s Closet also provides valuable leadership and personal development opportunities to young women in the community, who volunteer in the program and act as peers or near-peers to the girls they support.

Each program participant will receive a one-on-one 90 minute consultation with a volunteer image stylist to find a wide assortment of fun and fashionable school and recreational pieces.
