Yoga vs. Pilates

What are the differences between yoga and Pilates? Much has to do with the actual practice of each exercise. What is interesting is the similarities, however, and how the two work together. Yoga gives Pilates flexibility and stillness, while Pilates offers stability and stillness while in motion. Pilates is more about elongating the body and strengthening it, while Yoga helps to increase the flexibility capacity. Both work together to offer an integrated practice for mind and body.
