The differences between Pilates and Yoga

Updated: Mar 29, 2021

Pilates: Pilates classes focus on strength, muscle toning, body control, and flexibility, with the

main emphasis being core strength. Pilates is a disciplined practice that needs to be done on a

regular basis to provide benefit. If you like a more structured workout without the cardio

component, chanting, OMing, or complex postures, this could be the workout for you.

Yoga: On the other hand, yoga focuses on flexibility and broad muscle groups. It offers balance,

endurance, strength, spirituality, and some really physical movement. Classes can range from

gentle and nourishing to challenging and sweaty. With all the variety, there is always a class and

a style for everyone. If you like to move and you’re a go-with-the-flow kind of person, yoga

might just be your ticket.
