Ompractice is a digital health platform for live, interactive and evidence-based wellness classes at scale. We are starting with yoga because for far too long this proven practice was overlooked as a solution to massive population health issues due to the impracticality of scaling the in-person experience. Ompractice removes the geographic, financial, and inclusivity barriers to high-quality yoga and its many benefits and outcomes.
Ompractice is used by individuals, large organizations and multiple heath providers and payors.
We are just getting started.
Ompractice is run by a team who’s careers have been focused on bring more wellness and happiness into the world.

What Our Members Say
MIIA Member: The convenience of attending an interactive, “live” yoga class from the comfort of my home is wonderful. To have the flexibility of practicing remotely any day of the week with such fantastic yoga instructors is a gift!
Molly K: I am away in Montreal and finally tried out Ompractice. I got to start my Saturday with an incredible yoga class right in our condo taught by an amazing teacher….Perfect for folks who travel, have young kids, or just not enough time to get to the studio and home again.
@MilesHighRunning: We have dabbled in yoga DVDs for over a decade to help work on flexibility, mindfulness and strength, but lacked accountability for any sustaining practice….We took a 9:00 pm Ompractice class with @Lisa.yogalove (it was actually a date night for us!). Lisa was in CO, we were in GA. No biggie.... It.Was.Awesome. No rushing to a gym. No need to find a babysitter. No need for super expensive memberships or drop-in studio fees. And the variety of times and teachers is insane. (And they are hiring!) People. You have to try this.
Cassie: Can I just say how incredibly lucky I am to have found Ompractice?!? It’s SO hard keeping my practice going here in Kuwait (class timing, lack of teachers who teach the style I want, plus: can you imagine paying $50 USD for ONE group class?!?) but the Ompractice platform allows me to come to my mat (anywhere!!) and be lead through a live practice I can’t put into words how grateful I am. Thank you, thank you, thank you
