yoga poseThere is a lot of interest these days in yoga and Pilates together. Some people think they are the same, which they are not; and some people think Pilates was developed from yoga, which it was not. Nevertheless, yoga and Pilates do have much in common and taking a little dip from one to other occasionally can help shed new light on our approach to certain exercises or our workouts as a whole.

Since we are Pilates folks here, this week we take 7 yoga poses and look at how we might use them to go deeper into our Pilates practice.
