suzanne nagel

Founder and Creative Director, E-RYT, YACEP

Suzanne was born and raised in Pittsburgh's South Hills and The Om Lounge is a dream over 40 years in the making. Growing up, Suzanne was either reading a book, writing, or dancing. After taking dance and gymnastics classes, Suzanne would go home and choreograph ‘sequences’ for the neighborhood kids . From dancing to gymnastics, Suzanne loved movement. Now as a yoga instructor, Suzanne is known for creative sequencing as well as transitions on the mat.

Straight out of college, Suzanne worked as a television news producer. Her love for writing and creating continued and Suzanne eventually moved away from TV news and into marketing for a local spa. Throughout her years as a working mother, Suzanne depended on her yoga practice to sustain her physically and mentally as well as ground her. Her interest and love of yoga led her to become a teacher. Suzanne completed her 200 hour yoga training and continued her advanced training with Kate Duyn in Los Angeles. After years of teaching classes, Suzanne decided to open The Om Lounge, with the intention of a space that would be more than just a yoga studio. It would be a yoga home. In addition to teaching and training other teachers, Suzanne continues to study all things yoga and is currently enrolled in her 500 hour advanced training with Faith Hunter at Embrace Yoga In Washington DC.

In Suzanne's class, you can expect soulfulness and insight, yet her inner feistiness and playfulness are always present. Her classes are based in the style of Vinyasa Krama, a step-by-step progession, to a certain goal, whether that be a posture or theme. Suzanne hopes that the practice of yoga, through finding awareness, will support her students as its has supported her throughout the different phases of her life.

When not at The Om Lounge, Suzanne is most likely relaxing with her puppies or her boyfriend, reading, or eating her favorite food: pizza!
