FAQ

The OM Yoga Lounge Studio during a vinyasa yoga class.
1. Where to park?

We are located in the city of Pittsburgh with two convenient locations: Our East Liberty studio (218 N. Highland Ave) is located, on the corner of N. Highland Ave and Harvard Street. Ample street parking available as well as a large public parking lot just behind the studio on Harvard Street. Sundays are free!

Our Strip District studio (2000 Smallman St) is located on Smallman Street in the heart of the Strip in the building with Kaya and De Fer coffee. Street parking is widely available. Sundays are free! PRO TIP: There is a large parking lot behind the Strip District terminal. Entry on 16th or 21st streets & Smallman. Walk through the 20th street passageway by Wines + Spirits and you will be directly in front of The Om Lounge!

2. How do I create an account, book classes, and/or book a friend?

Head to to our Schedule here on the website or the OM Lounge & Wellness app and click LOGIN to create an account or sign in. To book classes, go to the SCHEDULE on the APP or website. To share your credits with a friend, book yourself twice and it will use your credit for your friend. For Transform members, to take advantage of your FREE +1, book yourself twice and for your friend, use your BUDDY PASS. If you encounter any issue, please email lauren@omloungeyoga.com.

3. How Do I Get in to the Building? Can I arrive Late or Leave Early?

Both of our studios are located on the second floor and you will need to be buzzed into the building. The door remains locked at all times for safety. In the Strip District studio, please press" 207 & the green bell". In East Liberty, press the buzzer for " The Om Lounge." We do not permit late arrivals out of respect to our students and teachers, however if you are running only a couple minutes late, please notify The Om Lounge by calling the desk at the studio you are booked in and if you are already signed in to class, we will accommodate you. On the flip side, leaving early (especially during Savasana, our final meditation) disturbs your fellow yogis. Kindly wait until the end of class to leave. If you have a special situation, please talk to your instructor BEFORE class. We do not issue refunds for late arrivals.

4. I'm having trouble with my Om Lounge App i.e having trouble logging in, I only see one studio in the app?

We have two studios. East Liberty & Strip District. Toggle between the two studios in our app or schedule. For any issues regarding booking, please contact lauren@omloungeyoga.com.

5. What is the temperature of the studio?

At The Om Lounge, the studio is comfortable, set just above room temperature at about 76-78 degrees.  It’s simple; if it’s cold out, we adjust, and make it more cozy, if it’s hot out, same thing. It's the perfect environment!

6. Do I have to pre-register for classes?

We ask students to pre-register before class on our website or on the OM Lounge Yoga & Wellness APP, which you can download on Apple or Google Play for FREE, or our website. Preference is given to those that register in advance. Please be aware that weekend morning, and weekday evening classes are highly attended and it is best to book your class in advance to ensure your spot. We have a strict capacity limit in both studios.

7. What is your cancellation policy?

You must cancel your class reservation at least 12 hours prior to class start time if you cannot attend. For workshops and/or special events, you must cancel 24 hours prior or you will be charged as if you attended. For all cancellations, we DO NOT accept voicemails or emails. You must cancel/reschedule through our OM Lounge Yoga & Wellness app or website. Login to your account and go to your BOOKINGS to cancel. If you do not cancel within the 12 hour window, you will be charged $20 for the class or lose the class credit. Class credits are NON-refundable (no exceptions).

8. May I pause or cancel my studio membership?

You may pause your membership for up to 3 months. To do so, you will be charged $10 for each month paused. If you choose to pause your membership for under a month (i.e), your account will be charged $10 for the pause. Contact theomlounge@gmail.com to request a pause.

To cancel your membership anytime after your 3 month commitment, you must send an email to theomlounge@gmail.com 14 days before your membership renews. If we do not receive the email two weeks prior to renewal, your account will renew and we will cancel it for the following month.

9. I am a Beginner.  What Class Should I Take?

For those interested in Slow Flow or less complex sequences, our "Candlelit Stretch & Open" classes are the best option. However, most of our day to day Vinyasa classes are All-Levels unless specifically noted (like Candlelit Stretch & Open.) All levels means that the class is designed with all levels of practitioners in mind and is not geared specifically for Beginners. You will be in class with students practicing for two days and students practicing for 15 years! That is the beauty of it! We welcome Beginners to come and try our style. Our teachers will offer some modifications and variations throughout the sequence and for peak or challenge poses. There is no need to prove anything to anyone or to worry about your "performance." Everyone's body is different and how you learn is by just getting started. It takes at least a few sessions to get the hang of it! Do not be surprised if you feel overwhelmed when you are new to yoga or to our Om Lounge style. We teach a creative, athletic, and unique style that is not a traditional approach. With that said, students are encouraged to take their time developing their practice and do what works for them. You can take a rest anytime, observe, drink water or just chill. Everyone around you will have been a "newbie" at some point or another. Give yourself the grace to learn and grow. Please do not be upset with yourself or the instructors if you aren't able to pick it up right away. Our classes incorporate transitions that are unique to our style and take some time getting used to. Just like taking a spin class with new choreography, a barre class, or boxing, martial arts, etc., there is a skillset that must be developed through practice. If you need more special instruction, please contact the studio for private lessons.
