Default Pilates info, and a couple of questions...

I found the following pilates articles over at FaaS...

Have You Tried Pilates Yet?
Yoga vs. Pilates: Which Is Best for You?

Does anyone here do pilates regularly? Can you recommend some videos??

Thanks,
MM

I have done both, Pilates and it is alot of stretching, I used to dance classical Ballet and a lot of Ballet Students use it to get a leaner longer look, It works but I have found that Power Yoga is great for strengthing your muscles and it makes you sweat as well as giving you the benefits of a lean non-bulky look.

Personally I felt that the Pilates was too low impact for me to loose the amount of weight that I have gained. So, Power Yoga is a better cardio and strengthing exercise for me. Pilates was good for stretching and flexibility.

Also remember everyone's body is different, your body may react to one better than the other depending on your goals.

I have tried Windsor Pilates and also the Power 90 program has some Power Yoga in it.

Good Luck!

Hi. I bought the Winsor Pilates at Christmas and I did it 3-5 times a week for 3 - 3 1/2 weeks. Perhaps I became discouraged too quickly, but I didn't see any results, and my flexibility didn't increase at all (I was hoping for at least that). Maybe I wasn't doing the exercises correctly. I think Pilates is one of those things that if you don't do it correctly, you won't see any benefits. Anyway, I returned my to Target where I bought it.
