Really interesting. Just trying these classes having done 1.5 years of yoga. Howeer, I'd be interested to understand what someone more expert than me thinks pilates is giving that yoga doesn't. I'm asking in the most positive way. Looking for a reason to continue both as I feel the benefits.

Amit - yoopod .

Hi Andrew. Thanks for your question. I believe the main aspects you will find you get more in the Pilates classes than in the Yoga classes on yoopod (and in general) are:
1. Pilates classes "break things down" for you, giving you a better understanding (awareness) of HOW to do the different movements and how to identify you are doing things "correctly"
2. Pilates has more emphasis on core strength and
3. Pilates has more emphasis on "spinal articulation" - moving your spine sequentially rather than in big "chunks"
I think the combination of Pilates and Yoga is wonderful and that if you will continue practising Pilates you will feel the improvement in your Yoga practice before long :)
Best, Amit

Im really enjoying practising how to breathe properly, it amazes me that i do everyday and never really give it thought..

Don't underestimate the effectiveness of these shorter classes, they are still a great workout! I can definitely see improvements in my form in subsequent longer classes after refreshing the underpinning techniques.

Just finished a set of 4 nights and woke this afternoon stiff, achy and sore. So sign up for yoopod and found this wonderful class. Exactly what I needed to unwind and relax. Thanks Amit, will definitely search for 1 and 2.

Feeling much more awake and clear headed after completed all 3 of the sessions in this group. No 3 is definitely a challenge... but am looking forward to building up my strength and stamina so I can progress on.

First Pilates class ever, and I'm already hooked. I can't tell you how relaxed I feel after those 3 pre Pilates lessons. I moved muscles I didn't know I had! What a great teacher Amit is.

Great class. My husband joined me for this today, it was such fun having a class together in our very own living room. Plus, it was his first Pilates experience (he normally takes Yoga classes) and he loved it!

Felt a bit tired today so decided to do an easier class. it was actually really good to get back to basics and take the time to re-work on familiar exercises. thank you!
