Committed practitioners of yoga and Pilates are after something more than just a workout or fit body. They seek heightened awareness, and a greater control of mind and body in everything they do. The ancient practice of yoga, and the more modern practice of Pilates, are both aimed at improving one's entire being through disciplined physical and mental exercises. They are not only about gaining strength and flexibility, but also a sense of well-being, health, and even inner peace.
Yoga is a spiritual discipline which uses meditation and physical poses to connect the mind, body and soul, improve health, and generate a sense of peace and relaxation. Practitioners of yoga in the west often try it for the physical benefits, such as improved flexibility, balance, and injury prevention. They often later discover its larger benefits to the mind as well, which is part of being truly fit.
Pilates emphasizes strength building, particularly in the core, flexibility and posture. It can also be done on a mat, or on an apparatus called a “Reformer”. This practice often appeals to the more athletically-inclined for its strength benefits, as a way to augment their gym routines and prevent injury.
Whether beginner or more advanced, practitioners of either yoga or Pilates don't need very much in the way of equipment, but they do expect their accessories to demonstrate the same level of commitment to achievement as they do, and prove themselves to be true partners in their routines.
