Hey, nice to meet you!

I am Stefanie, a Yoga teacher currently living in Barcelona, originally from Switzerland. 

Some years ago I found Yoga as a balance to my daily work behind the screen. Everyday that begins on the mat is a good day. I feel lighter, more balanced and am a better version of myself. As a yoga teacher I want to share this feeling with you. I combine the creative mind of a graphic designer with a heart for Yoga and specialise in creating dynamic and strong Vinyasa Yoga flows.

I am always up for a yoga challenge, hike, bad joke or a vegan chocolate cupkace.

I am new here, where should I begin?

Hey you! Welcome, I am so excited you are here! 
 
Are you also new to Yoga? 
That’s awesome! Congratulations for feeding your curiosity and embarking on your yoga journey. I would recommend you to start with the Yoga For Beginners Course. It helps you build a good foundation for your yoga practicing. Explaining the most common postures, alignments and cue you on how to breathe during your practice. From there you can then try the Level 1 to Level 2 classes to deepen your practice. 
 
Are you a more experienced Yogi with a regular practice? 
You can choose between the different courses to achieve a specific goal in your practice. Maybe you want to master headstands, stretch into full splits or get a regular yoga workout done. Choose between the courses or filter courses and classes that are designed for Level 2 and 3. 

How Do I become a member?

You need a subscription to access the classes and courses. Subscribing will only take a few minutes and is easy to do. You can choose between the completely free membership or the premium membership that gives you access to all the content. You can cancel, down or upgrade your membership whenever you like. 

How much is the subscription?

There are two plans you can choose from. The Free Membership is no cost and you get access to all the free content. This gives you the opportunity to try my platform to see if you like it.

If you wish to deepen your practice and achieve your yoga goals more efficiently you can upgrade to the Premium Membership which gives you access to the complete content library. The premium membership costs €20 per month and will be automatically renewed each month. You can cancel your monthly subscription anytime and will then still have access to all the free content.  

Which level classes should I choose?

If you are completely new to yoga I would recommend you to start with the Yoga For Beginners Course. This will help you create a foundation for your Yoga practice.
 
Level 1 Classes are for beginner Yogis and are typically slower paced and I will take more time to explain postures and techniques. I might also include more help from blocks and bolsters and give more options for making a pose easier and gentler. Some of these classes can still be strong and challenging for your muscles and fitness. Even if you are an experienced Yogi these classes can still benefit you on your lower energy and rest days. 
 
Level 2 classes are for more experienced Yogis with an intermediate level. They come with fewer and less detailed instructions and might be faster paced. For more advanced postures I will still give explanations and options to make it easier. These classes and courses are designed to challenge your practice and to get you to the next level. Please listen to your body and feel free to take it down a notch and choose the easier modification if you need it. 
 
Level 3 classes are for the experienced more advanced Yogis who have committed to a regular yoga practice for a time. They challenge your strength, balance and flexibility are typically faster paced and come with less instructions. Modification suggestions might still be given for more challenging poses. Every body is different and even with an advanced practice we want to listen to your body and adapt the practice to our needs. 
I recommend to mix and match and explore different levels. If you come a cross a posture that doesn’t feel good to you feel free to adapt it. Or if there are a few too many burpees in a flow feel free to take a rest in child’s pose 😃 

What are Courses and Classes?

What are courses? 
A course is a set of classes designed with a specific goal or theme in mind. For example the headstand course provides you with full length yoga classes that are designed around postures that help strengthen, stretch and prepare your body to enter into headstand safely. In the same course you will also find shorter tutorial videos that will explain you step by step how to get into headstand, how to modify it and practical tips. 
 
What are classes? 
Classes can be part of a course or stand separately. They are short or long flows that can be played and done and are similar to taking a class at a physical yoga studio. Depending on the level they may be more or less strenuous and fast or slower paced. Most classes are Vinyasa and Hatha based. You can also find some Yin and Restorative classes. 

I can't find what I am looking for what should I do?

Please feel free to contact me with class requests. I will be happy to create what you need. You can email me at hola@yogaycupcakes.com

How Can I Cancel My Membership?

You can cancel without any fee and anytime. Please send an email to hola@yogaycupcakes.com in order to cancel your membership. 

I am a yoga beginner. Can I do the classes and courses?

Yes, there are classes and courses for all levels and you can start with the Yoga For Beginners Course to build your yoga foundation. 
 
Keep in mind that Yoga should make you feel amazing! Never do anything that hurts. You will be working your body to gain strength and flexibility so it is normal for your muscles to ache and stretch but that mostly feels like a good sensation. If you feel aching pain, please back off. Maybe the pose or the class is not what your body needs, so stop and try a different class. Try to connect with the sensations in your body as much as you can in order to listen to what it needs. 

What are the benefits of Yoga? Why should I do Yoga?

Yoga has many physical, mental and spiritual benefits. 
 
Yoga helps you create a strong, flexible and toned body. It improves cardiac health, breathing energy levels and metabolism. A regular practice will help you gain better fitness, relieve pain and improve posture. 
 
It also makes you happier, feeling more balanced and emotionally stable. It helps you to relax and to handle stress better. It can make you feel more confident and improve focus and energy. Yoga teaches you to listen to your self and your body. It helps you become more aware of what is going on inside of you and around you and helps you be more present.  
 
When doing Yoga you will see some immediate benefits like releasing tension and strengthening muscles. You may leave the mat with that ‘yoga high’ feeling. Other benefits may take more time to show their effects and it all depends on how much time and effort you put into it.  

I have a medical issue. Can I still do Yoga?

Before starting a new exercise plan it is good to consult with your medical practitioner. Especially if you have any medical condition, are taking medication, are pregnant or nursing. The information on my website, my classes and courses might not be suitable for you depending on your medical conditions. 
 
A great thing about yoga is that it is highly adaptable. If you know about your medical conditions and which movements to avoid you can find adaptations for the postures or simply skip them. There is also a range of probs available that you might want to incorporate into your practice to further assist you. Stay safe and healthy on and off the mat. 

Will Yoga help me lose weight?

I am not a fan of diet culture and weight loss programs but a lot of people are curious whether yoga will help them lose weight so here are my thoughts.
 
Yoga can be a physical exercise and can help you burn calories and gain muscles which combined with a healthy diet can help you lose weight. You can try more challenging fitness inspired classes and courses like my HIIT inspired Vinyasa Flows. 
 
Yoga also helps you bring your body back into balance and reduce stress, improve your sleep, circulation and breathing. Which all might affect your lifestyle and eating habits and therefore have an affect on weight gain or weight loss. 
 
The mental benefits of yoga are increased self-confident and better body awareness. That way you will feel more comfortable in your own skin and make a more educated decision on whether your motivation for weight loss comes from self love (increased health) or from external opinions. 

Can I eat before doing yoga?

I would recommend practicing Yoga on an empty stomach. So allow 2 hours between a meal and your yoga practice. If you want to do a stronger class and feel hungry beforehand, try having a snack. A piece of fruit, some nuts and seeds or a natural energy bar is a good option.

When should I practice Yoga?

I might be biased but I think anytime is a good time to practice yoga 😃 
 
Personally I am a huge fan of Morning Yoga. It opens, stretches and moves the body to get it ready for the day and you already have accomplished something and done a nice thing for yourself by stepping on the mat. 
 
During the day a Yoga break is a nice treat as well, especially for those sitting behind a desk for many hours. 
 
Yoga in the evening can help you rewind and relax from the day and prepare you for a good deep recovering sleep. 

How often should I practice Yoga?

To reap all the benefits Yoga can bring to your life keeping up a regular practice is important.
Try to practice 2 to 3 times a week during an hour. I understand that life gets busy so if you only have time for a 15 minute practice or 5 minutes of meditation some weeks, that is fine too. 
If you are practicing a lot and develop a strong and steady practice it would be good to have one rest day a week to let your body recover and recharge.
