Pilates and yoga mats are considered one of the most important items to get started with in yoga. Contrary to the popular belief, yoga, pilates and exercise mats are for much more than just providing a platform on which to perform asanas. Both yoga and pilates mats are used to provide you with a surface to assure stability, balance, flexibility, strength and posture.
Both yoga and pilates have their own ways of working. On the one hand, yoga is more about the spiritual well-being of a person whereas pilates has more to do with physical fitness. It doesn't focus on the spiritual aspect as much as traditional hatha yoga. Yoga is all about creation of perfect postures combined with sound breathing techniques. This results in easy to perform movements and asanas to enhance the strength and flexibility of the whole body.
Pilates also involves breathing techniques but its' main focus is on body movement to target specific areas such as the core muscles. If one is attending these sessions in studios, he or she might be able to see the difference. Yoga is generic and goes from simple basic postures to advanced complex ones while pilates is designed considering the need, strength and weaknesses of a person’s body.
