What's the difference between Pilates and Yoga?

What’s the difference between Pilate’s and Yoga? I practice Pilate’s one in a while when I am stressed or when my body is in pain :/. Yoga seems to be similar but what’s the difference.
Also which one is your favorite and are any good DVDs you would recommend to do at home?

i think yoga is more calming u no for the sole


Pilates is more of a series of little exercises to tone muscles. I have not tried yoga. I bought the Windsor Pilates power sculpt and abs. It is good. I always thought
yoga was more stretching and endurance. I would like to know about yoga also.


Pilates focuses on core strength; making the core body muscles (such as the psoas) stronger. it is more “exercise-like” than yoga with repetitions. There is usually not a strong mediative component. Pilates will get you in shape and make you strong in a good way – not the surface way like aerobics.
Yoga is more about body awareness. It has a meditative component and is much much older. Yoga will change your life and who you are permanently for the better.
I recommend dunya (dianne mcpherson) yoga DVDs.
you can buy three of her yoga DVDS at http://www.dancemeditation.org
she is my teacher and it changed my life for the better.


pilates is to loosen muscles and tone them…yoga is used as a stress relief…football players do pilates in the offseason to stay loose


Pilates is more of a physical workout… yoga is more of a workout of the mind and soul
