that sounds more like vinyasa yoga.

Why don’t you try some videos from the library. I have done some good ones and not good ones.

Pilates is more about strength than yoga, but its certainly not as intense as other exercises. I think they all have a place in a routine, but I wouldnt do only yoga or pilates.

I find these classes to be so dependent on the instructor. I’ve been to yawn-inducing classes and I’ve been to classes that kick my butt. So I’d give it another shot and hope for a different trainer before ruling it out. I also know that  I like to sweat when I work out, so basic yoga classes don’t do much for me. I’ve found that piyo/yogalates/bikram yoga are better suited for me since they’re about sweating and heart pumping instead of calm and relaxation. Just my two cents!

Yeah, that doesn’t sound like Pilates at all.  I recommend both for flexibilty and strength but I much prefer yoga (like the “pilates” class you took:)  Check out some other studios because you shouldn’t be doing anything like down dog or sun salutations, even in a so-called mat class.
