What is the difference between yoga and Pilates?
First we need to remember that yoga is an ancient art form incorporating the spiritual and physical within a religious practice. There have been many forms of yoga created through thousands of years. Pilates was formed much later in the 1920s by the physical trainer Joseph Pilates for the purpose of rehabilitation. Some of the first people Joseph treated were soldiers who had been wounded in battle. Pilates was most popularly used by gymnasts and dancers to strengthen their bodies and rehabilitate their injuries caused by overuse.
Pilates is a series of controlled exercises that focus on the body's core (the abdominal, hip, and back muscles). It is an exercise system that focuses on improving flexibility, strength, and body awareness, without increasing bulk. Today Pilates is used by many athletes including golfers and basketball players. Pilates is not limited to just the wounded and athletes. Pregnant and postpartum women find the benefits it offers as well as seniors looking to maintain strength while avoiding extra stress on their joints.
The form of Pilates we provide is called STOTT Pilates. STOTT Pilates uses modern exercise techniques, based on the fundamental movements created by physical trainer Joseph Pilates. Some of the basic exercises in this form are influenced by yoga because of it's introduction into western physical culture during the time Pilates was being developed. STOTT Pilates incorporates the use of different spring loaded equipment which varying resistance to build strength.
So again, what is the difference between yoga and Pilates? Pilates fundamental values are based on creating a mind-body connection while improving flexibility and strength. Yoga is based on religious and spiritual practices that influence their various postures.
