Options Studio was founded by former gymnast Ole Eugenio, who trained under Romana Kryzanowska, one of the pupils of pilates founder and creator Joseph Pilates. Apart from being the first Filipino to be certified in Stott Pilates in Toronto, Canada, Eugenio is also the Creator of Core Suspend and Core Reform from the systems of Smart Movement®. He has also made sure to personally train all instructors at Shang’s Options Studio. This branch is owned by the Options Studio Managing Partner Marivic del Pilar and is headed by Senior Movement Specialist and Managing Partner Alain Buenaventura, who is also one of the well-loved Pilates Instructors at studio.
Some of Option Studio’s most loyal clients include Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and TV host Daphne Oseña-Paez who have been vocal about how training with Options Studio and pilates have transformed not only their bodies but also their lives in general. Pilates, after all, is known to improve flexibility and posture, strength and mobility, restoring balance to the body, and make one feel more energetic.
