Shawna Stienwand - Drop-In Yoga & Pelvic Floor Restore
We will keep you posted as we work to provide live video classes.
Six Week Restorative SessionOn going classes:Please contact Shawna at 306.961.6310 for up and coming classes.
Although your pelvic floor is hidden from view, these muscles can be consciously controlled and "worked out", similar to strengthening other muscles, like your abs, hamstrings or biceps.
With a pelvic floor program, you can target your deep core muscles, flatten your tummy, improve your posture, stabilize your pelvis and spine, reduce muscle imbalance and, the one most people know about, prevent incontinence.
A strong pelvic floor is so much more than being able to jump on the trampoline or to go for a run without "dribbling".
Join Shawna for Pelvic Floor Restore course. For more information, please text Shawna at 306.961.6310.
Maximum 6 participants per class. Please bring a yoga mat if you own one.
INDIVIDUAL AND SEMI-PRIVATE SESSIONS AVAILABLE.

Please talk to Shawna about the option to bring your babies and pre-schoolers to these sessions.

Love Your Tribe
Pick your tribe. Pick your time. Pick your yoga.
In our busy lives, the opportunity for women to come together is often limited or neglected. We are the caregivers, the center of our family's life, the supporters in our communities and often feel an emotional gap.
Your "tribe" helps you be a better mother, friend, partner. Simply being with other women is restorative.
Connect with your tribe.
Private, small group yoga sessions are available for your tribe. Gather your tribe of 4-6 friends and schedule your exclusive sessions, taught by Balance Everywear owner, Shawna Stienwand. A minimum of four is required for each session.
For available times and rates, please email email@example.com
Pssst....Several daytime sessions are still available. Recharge while your minis are in school.
Ideas for Private Small Group Sessions
Do you have a small group of friends who are interested in exclusive, private scheduled sessions? We love this!
4-6 adults needed per group, choose your session day and time and schedule your session length. Minimum of 4 participants per session required.
Here's a sample of small groups we can focus on:
Yoga for Adults
This 'all levels' class provides a balance of held poses as well as poses flowing in a progression from one to another. With a combination of postures and movement, both beginners and more experienced students can enjoy their practice.
Improve your flexibility, balance and strength in this small, supportive and safe environment. Aging, without movement, means our muscles can start to stiffen and joints can lose their range of motion. Yoga can help slow down the effects of the aging process and many age-related issues. This is a great class for increasing the strength of the small muscles around your joints that aid in stability. Please Note: You need to be able to sit on the ground to do this class.
This class is designed as an introduction to the practice of yoga. The class is a slower pace and and focuses on learning foundation poses. Come learn the yoga basics in a supportive environment with a small group of others, just as new to yoga (or as afraid) as you are.
Active Adults & Athletes
This yoga class is designed for adults and athletes who are already active in their daily life. You will be lead through poses, sequences and holds that will challenge your strength, flexibility and focus. These sessions will be the perfect compliment to your already active lifestyle.
Advanced Yoga Poses
With proper technique and support these poses are always fun to add to your practice.
