What is the difference between Yoga and Pilates?

Yoga. Yoga, is explained as a lifestyle, instead of just an exercise. It works towards offering a path to physical and mental well-being. It also includes all the exercise routines in conjunction with a healthy diet, relaxation, meditation, and breathing skills.

Pilates method, although inspired by certain yoga poses, is a complicated system. It works towards conditioning the entire body. Pilates is not an ancient practice as yoga. It is just eighty years old and invented by a German athlete, Joseph Pilates.
Pilates focus on developing the core strength inside the body and elongating the spine. This form of exercise would enhance strength and spread awareness on proper posture. Yoga basically emphasizes on the union of body with mind and spirit and works on the whole body. Yoga helps in relieving stress.
