What is Pilates?

Pilates has become extremely popular amongst a variety of people due to its benefits and social media saturation. However, if you haven’t ever tried pilates, you may be unsure of what it is. Pilates is a workout that focuses primarily on core add muscle strength and can be either aerobic or non-aerobic. Pilates workouts can be designed to work out your entire body, but the main purpose is to tone muscles. There is also a big focus on breathing, stretching and body alignment.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines that originated in ancient India.

Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing through the regular practice of a range of different techniques, including postures and movement, breathing and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration and meditation.

Yoga is an approach to life that values effort based on the balance and harmony within a person.

How is Pilates Different?

Pilates vs yoga are often mentioned synonymously, but they aren’t the same thing. Yoga and pilates both have numerous health benefits and the main similarity between the two is the incorporation of breathwork with exercise. Yoga has a stronger focus on spirituality and meditation, whereas pilates workouts utilise exercises that are specifically targeted to improve strength, flexibility, posture and body alignment. Pilates is also much more beneficial for recovery from injuries. Both practices are good for you and will help improve your body, but depending on your fitness goals, if you are looking for more strength, tone and improved body alignment, pilates is the way to go.
