    I prefer yoga myself…but I tend to think you get more results from Pilates 🙂

    I haven’t done much pilates, but from what I did it seemed more effective for losing weight/toning than yoga (unless you’re doing fast yoga?) Yoga seems better for stretching/relaxing, in my very-novice opinion.

    I wanted to pick both, but I picked pilates because I do it more.

    I actually do hot yoga….and depending how hard you push yourself you can burn like 600 calories/hour.  But I don’t go crazy…its more of a complete mind/body workout.

    I like them both, but I think I prefer yoga.

    I’ve also done hot yoga, although it’s been a while since I went to class.  You do get REALLY sweaty.  It didn’t bother me too much, but it was essentially like I jumped into a pool or something after class.  I do think the classes were really great though.  I used to feel really cleansed and great after class.

    I dislike both of them!!! So much. I’d rather do a heart-ponding step class!

    I love yoga, hate pilates. But if you’re looking to tone up and lose weight I think pilates is the way to go. I think yoga helps you tone up over time but not over a short time period.

    for toning, i’d go with pilates. both are similar to each other but there’s more kinetic movement with pilates than yoga. you’d probably get faster results.

    i do prefer pilates to yoga

    I enjoy yoga more but find pilates more effective for toning.  Never tried hot yoga though.

    I prefer pilates. Not sure why – maybe because you hold the poses for a shorter amount of time? Either way, I detest yoga. I’ve just never been very good at it.

    Personally, i found pilates to be the most masochistic thing I have ever put my body through. That said, it did wonderful things for getting me fit, lean, and strong! I much prefer kick boxing to pilates though!

    I really dont like bikram yoga, Its way too slow paced and I do not even feel it is a good workout. Plus I absolutely can not stand doing yoga in 100 degrees.  I think plates is great if you are using the reformer. I have been doing yoga for way longer than pilates and therefore prefer it. Power yoga is excellent for tonight and burning fat, it does amazing things for your body.
