What are the differences between yoga and Pilates? You will understand after reading
I didn't understand the difference between yoga and Pilates before. In June of this year, I signed up for a Pilates class and invited a personal trainer. Only then did I gradually understand their similarities and differences. Yoga and Pilates are similar to breathing physical exercises. They belong to two exercise systems. The asanas are all done on the yoga mat. The clothes should be worn with elastic body-sculpting tights and stretch freely when doing this. The practice environment is also quiet, exercise in a peaceful way, suitable for a wide range of people.
The difference is that the origin and training are different.
Yoga comes from ancient India and is an extension of philosophy with a religious background. Most of its training is done on the mat. The origin of the action is to observe the instinctive habits of birds, beasts, fish, and insects to discover their activities, relaxation, and sleep, and how these animals use natural methods when they are sick. It treats diseases and imitates some beneficial actions. Most of them are static. They pay more attention to stretching, balance and relaxation, meditation and chanting, aiming to adjust the balance between mind and body. Reaching the state where the soul returns to the true self is a practice of body and mind.
Pula mentioned that it originated in Germany. It was originally a treatment method used by Mr. Joseph to restore the body of soldiers injured in the war when the First Century War broke out in 1914. It is famous for its remarkable effects. Later, it also helped some dancers, Actors, athletes, etc. provide rehabilitation training. The whole system exists in the form of physical rehabilitation. Each movement process requires precise control, breathing coordination, concentration of consciousness, and fluency of movement. Many actions will imitate people's daily activities such as walking, turning and other functional performance actions. Training is divided into equipment training and mat training. Most of them are trained through equipment. MOTR, Pilates circle, Pilates ball, etc. are small equipment and most of the Pilates movements are dynamic.
Although both yoga and Pilates pay attention to the combination of breathing and movement, there are still big differences. Yoga breathing is nasal inhalation and nasal exhalation focusing on the transfer of internal energy; Pilates breathing is nasal inhalation and mouth exhalation focusing on breathing and internal energy. The simultaneous activation of the core makes each set of training more effective.
I believe that through the above understanding, you have a clear understanding of the difference between Pilates and yoga. If you want to know more about Pilates, you also need to experience the changes that Pilates brings to your body.In fact, whether it is yoga or Pilates, we study hard, use it in our own body, and keep practicing regularly.
