Yoga and Pilates are completely different styles of exercise and both training styles complement each other tremendously. They’re both low intense, low impact and focused on the integrated whole of your body, unlike many other forms of exercise.

Yoga originated in India over 5000 yrs ago. Most yoga classes involve flowing through a series of poses that utilise your body weight as resistance. The focus is on improving balance, flexibility while connecting the mind, body, and breath, helping to direct your attention inward. Yoga provides a meditative environment for you to improve your overall quality of life.

Pilates, on the other hand, is a workout method created by Joseph Pilates 100 yrs ago that involves moving through controlled, precise, strength exercises with breath control. Pilates focuses heavily on core strength and stability. Of the two, Pilates tends to be a bit more fast paced than yoga.

Yoga and pilates each have their benefits. The best part is that you don’t have to choose. Combine them both for an amazing way to transform your mind, body and soul connection. Plus they’re both a whole lot of fun!
