  1. Yoga is mental discipline as much as it is exercise…. as far as I can tell, Pilates is just rolling around on big beach-balls and yanking giant rubber bands…. Solution?? Weight-Room!!

  2. Yoga is using body for spiritual enhancement with physical stress release
    Pilate’s is body for physical emphasis

  3. Yoga seems more spiritual and mental, while pilates seems to be the more physical of the two.
