During research for an article I'm writing, I came across this page: Pilates vs. Yoga: Which One is Right for You? I've always wondered what the difference is between yoga and pilates, so I'm glad I finally know!
In a nutshell:
Pilates has been around for about 80 years and is based on yoga asanas (postures); it focuses on the physical benefits.
Yoga has been around for much, much longer and is a holistic approach to health, including physical exercise, diet, mental exercise, and spiritual awareness.
