Q&A: Is yoga or pilates a good exercise for me?

Question by Jedi Girl: Is yoga or pilates a good exercise for me?
I am 5 foot 2 and I weigh 125. I walk on the treadmill everyday for 40 minutes or I will do 20 on the treadmill and 20 on the bike. I really want to become more flexible and flatten up my tummy some. Is it okay to do both yoga and pilates? Do you have any websites you would recommend? Any beginner tips?
Thought I should add this, I’m christian and is the spiritual part of yoga necessary?

How many minutes should you spend doing yoga or pilates?
