Pilates vs. Yoga

Pilates is gaining in popularity alongside yoga exercise. Although Pilates is considered a physical activity, its not considered a cardiovascular workout. Pilates and yoga share the same techniques to develop, tone and strengthen the muscles of the entire body - such as the arms, legs, abdomen and back - by using the body's own resistance to build power during movement. Compared to yoga postures, Pilates poses are strikingly similar, yet there are some profound differences.
