Ever wonder what the differences are between yoga and Pilates? If the answer is yes, you're not alone. People confuse these two workouts all the time. But the truth is, while they share some similarities -- enhancing strength, flexibility, posture, etc. -- fundamentally they are worlds apart.

I recently published an article with FOX News entitled Yoga vs. Pilates: What's Right For You? I think it will clear up some of the confusion. Check it out to learn about the core elements of both practices, such as their principles and purposes, techniques, and health benefits, so you can determine which exercise is best for you. Or, if you're anything like me, maybe they both are!
