Gabrielle Payne

Instructor, RYT

Gabie fell in love with yoga when she was looking for a way to relieve stress while working as a morning news reporter. She loved that yoga empowered her to release anxiety, embrace self-love and connect to her body, mind and soul through movement and intention. Gabie says that her yoga journey has given her the confidence and ease to lead a peaceful, purposeful life.  


After moving to Pittsburgh in 2020, Gabie found the Om Lounge and immediately loved the creative sequencing and welcoming community. After embarking on her first solo travel trip to Tulum, Mexico for a yoga retreat, Gabie knew that she wanted to spread the life-changing benefits of yoga with others. She enrolled in her 200-Hour Teacher Training at the Om Lounge where she became absorbed in the beauty of yoga- from philosophy and history to sequencing and meditation. She is grateful to now have the opportunity to share her passion for yoga with the Pittsburgh community and beyond. 


In Gabie’s classes, you can expect uplifting vibes, good jams, heartfelt intentions and maybe the occasional freestyle dance move or two. When you leave her classes, she hopes you will feel refreshed, connected, and fulfilled. 


Off the mat, Gabie works in social media- both at Duquesne University and as a content creator. She’s a major foodie and loves to explore the Pittsburgh food scene. She also loves to read books, whip up recipes in the kitchen, try out new workout classes, and hang with her fiancé, Ben, and orange cat, Henrie. She loves to make new friends and hopes to get to know YOU, too!
