What is the difference between Pilates and Yoga?
Joseph H. Pilates, the creator and inventor of the Pilates method said ‘The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is complete co-ordination of body, mind and spirit.’ It strengthens the back while lightening the load on your spine by fixing the imbalances created by bad posture and the incorrect use of muscles. Pilates combines elements of yoga, martial arts and strength training – essentially, it focuses on stretching and strengthening, in order to improve balance, flexibility and posture.
While both focus on developing strength, balance, flexibility, posture and good breathing technique, Yoga has a more spiritual element that Pilates does not. Pilates tends to focus on more specific exercises aimed at strengthening the body – particularly the core abdominal muscles.
Pilates for Men
Don’t be shy, guys, Pilates is not just for the girls! ESPH offers Pilates classes that cater to everyone and many of our classes are attended by men. Even the players from Dulwich Hamlet Football Club are raving about Pilates because it is a fantastic way to keep the body supple and relieve the aches and pains of playing sport.
