YOGA and PILATES

TOSSING IN BETWEEN YOGA & PILATES

The two activities can actually help one another, core strengthening exercises in Pilates can assist with yoga postures, while the stability & stretching emphasized in yoga can aid Pilates exercises. One of the reasons the combination works well is that with yoga you’re doing a lot more with flexibility, balance & upper-lower-extremity strength, yet with Pilates, the intense focus is on core strength (the collection of different muscles that stabilize the spine & pelvis and run the entire length of the torso).
