We believe more bodies doing Pilates will make better humans and help the world.
We are ditching perfection and creating a practice (routine) for you to fill your cup first because when you fill your cup first, you can then help fill others’.
We are changing the way you think about yourself and your abilities in your practice every day.
Why we are different
In class, we teach and empower people to focus on what is possible in your bodies each day, to celebrate what you can do, and own that it’s brave and courageous to replace what you can’t do with what is possible in your body that day. Fewer class options eliminate decision fatigue and allow you to spend more time getting your movement practice in and allow you to compare yourself to yourself, which is the only person you should be comparing anybody to. We offer amazing community, incredible connection and help you be consistent.
We are the only platform that holds you accountable as each class is available for a limited amount of time. Our 30-minute classes are available for one week. Because classes disappear, we know you’ll schedule in time so you don’t miss them! All of our 50-minute classes are available for the full month so you can rinse and repeat or only do parts of those classes. It’s not about being all or nothing. If you can only do 15 minutes, at OPC we celebrate that!
Pilates itself is a mind-body connection. At OPC, because we allow you to repeat the same class as many times as you can in one week, it allows you to really connect your mind to your body and see what has become more possible as the week goes on and really understand yourself and where you’re at in your body better. Also, you will connect with other members and OPC Teachers. Our Form Feedback Fridays (FFF) provide an opportunity for you to receive feedback from OPC Teachers on where you can get more connection on different exercises!
OPC has the most supportive members-only community that you’ll find on the ‘net! It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to Pilates or have been teaching for decades, or if you were trained one way vs another. You’ll be in a safe, supportive space in our group. All Pilates levels, backgrounds and bodies are in our amazing, supportive community that celebrates what you do!
How it all began
Pilates can be done anywhere! OPC started as a way for people to maintain their mat practice while on the road (Consistency) and it became the first free online catalogue of Pilates exercise tutorials. In 2018, we only offered 30-minute mat classes that were available for a limited period of time. A private and safe Community quickly evolved. In Spring of 2019, weekly 30-minute reformer classes were added. Our community was growing and asked for more so in Fall of 2020, monthly 50-minute classes began, introducing all-equipment classes and a monthly live into our memberships. Because we have so many different ages, bodies, learning styles, a dream of OPC has been to add in more teachers, so to kick off 2022, we added more teachers!
Our studio began as space in the corner of a 500 square foot apartment, went to a small studio space, moved to a full at-home studio, and is now multiple teachers recording from around the US.
Our growth is because of you! And we wouldn’t be more excited to be on this journey with you. Thank you for being part of our community.
