You’ll often hear Yoga and Pilates mentioned in the same breath. Indeed, they’re complimentary. Yoga is a form of exercise that is known for linking breath and awareness to train the mind and body. And although yoga does build your core strength, you’l find yoga focuses more on flexibility while core strength is central to Pilates.
Both yoga and Pilates have long, well-documented histories. Practicing them together can help you cope with everyday stresses.
Another big difference between Yoga and Pilates is that yoga can be performed on a mat. Pilates frequently requires additional equipment.
Whichever path you take, start by working with an experienced instructor.
Yoga is often seen as the softer of the two disciplines. Pilates is better known as a way to build strength and muscles.
But both are excellent ways of working and provide similar benefits. The choice is yours.
