FAQ's

Faq's

1. Where to Park?    

We are conveniently located in the heart of Pittsburgh's East End on the corner of N. Highland Avenue and Harvard Street. There is ample street parking and a large parking lot behind the studio on Harvard Street.

2. What is the protocol due to Covid 19? 

Our studio is following and up to date on all of the latest CDC and state guidelines to create a safe environment for practice. Our studio has large open air windows that we use as often as possible to ventilate the studio as well as a brand new HVAC system that recirculates outdoor air. In addition to all recommended CDC cleansers, we also have UVC radiation germicidal lamps to disinfect the studio between classes and overnight. Our capacity limits are strictly enforced with 6 ft between each student. We require temperature check upon arrival. No one will be admitted to practice with temp above 100.4. There are no hands on adjustments and no prop rentals at this time. All yogis must bring their own mat and props. We ask that all students pre-register and arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before class to keep time to a minimum.

3. Can I arrive late and/or leave early if I need to? 

Our studio is located on the entire second floor and you will need to be buzzed into the building. The door remains locked at all times for safety. 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 412-450-8112 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.

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

We ask students to pre-register before class on our website or the Mindbody App. Drop-ins are not permitted at this time due to Covid -19 restrictions and capacity limits.

5. Do you have beginners classes and how much about yoga do I need to know before taking class?

We offer all levels classes on most days. The practice of yoga meets you where you are. Teachers offer modifications and variations to postures for every level. Remind yourself that your yoga begins the moment you show up for yourself on your mat and has nothing to do with achieving a perfect pose. The process of learning is unique to each of us.

6. What amenities do you offer?

The Om Lounge is not only a yoga studio. We are a wellness boutique. You can shop our boutique which offers athlesiure brands such as Namaste As Fuck, Free People Movement, Slightly Buddha, Alo, Nancy Rose Performance, Z Supply, & more. We also carry accessories: yoga + wellness books, mala beads, Shashi jewelry, yoga props, candles, incense and more! While you browse the boutique, have a cup of tea!

7. What is the temperature of the studio?

At The Om Lounge, the studio is comfortable, set just above room temperature. Don’t worry, if you like “Hot” yoga, you will definitely work hard enough in our classes to sweat, but you will also be building muscles and burning calories, not just dehydrating yourself. If you are not into the heat, you are going to love the feeling in the room without the risk of feeling light headed or dehydrated. 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!
