  • Yoga

    I enjoy it more. I find more satisfaction in yoga. Yoga is also part of my religious/spiritual beliefs (Hindu) so doing yoga also is part of my spiritual life as well (and my husbands, as a Sikh he does Kundalini Yoga on a daily basis)

  • Yoga - tried pilates and it's just too intensive for my level of activity. I love Kundalini yoga because it centers me, helps me relax and get in tune with myself. It gives me enough motion to increase my flexibility without the overstrain Hawtha or other traditional styles would put on my body.

  • I like Pilates for the change I see in my core strength and I like Yoga because I feel amazing after...I run long distance and yoga helps keep my muscles loose. my favorite class is the 1st 30 min in Pilates, the 2nd half is Yoga

  • I love yoga. The positions seem more feasible to me. If I had the option to do both [again] I would.

  • I love yoga, I just like how it focuses on breath and cleansing body and soul. Pilates is more of a WORKOUT and does not focus on the breath and the relaxation and focus.
