Actually there is no Yoga versus Pilates. Both are complete in their own respective ways and both have amazing benefits. The difference between them is more philosophical than physical.
Yoga involves mind, body and spirit. It has more of static poses or asanas which explores you through breathing, physical feelings and emotions. It helps your flexibility to grow, equally strengthening the muscle groups creating mental and physical balance.
Pilates is about moving and is more dynamic in its approach. It concentrates on strengthening the powerhouse, toning, correct movement, flexibility and mobility through the joints. It focuses more towards physical well being than spiritual but ultimately it does enhance both spiritual and physical aspects.
It is a personal choice that an individual makes depending upon one's personality and targets. If you are getting strength training from somewhere and your goal is to stretch, relax and have some quiet time plus spiritual and holistic growth then Yoga would be a good choice.
Either of the choice is good because you are anyways enhancing your body’s health by choosing either Yoga or Pilates.
I can swear by Pilates because it has changed my life both physically and spiritually and today I lead a very fulfilling life which I owe it to Joseph Pilates for discovering such a wonderful complete exercising method.

I was looking for a Pilates studio in Delhi as a doctor’s recommendation when I found Monica. This was the best choice I made for my physical and mental health. My back pain is gone and I’m feeling stronger for every day tasks. The results for my whole body are fantastic! Monica is a highly qualified professional and she is always attentive to the individual needs of each person. The studio is very well equipped and with a very good energy. I highly recommend her classes.
The studio and our work together was my rythm in Delhi. It taught me how to breath and use my body in the right way and to rebuild after knee surgery. It showed me my weaknesses and helped me turn those into strengths. We talked, worked, laughed and sometimes cried! The change I saw in my physical self was huge and it allowed me to get back to competitive running. Something I never thought possible post surgery. And I made a friend along the way. Thank you
I have been going to Monica for Pilates for almost five years now. While I initially thought Pilates was a core (stomach and back mainly) strengthening workout, to my delight, Monica has proven otherwise. We work on all the joints with the emphasis on core strength. The challenging but slow workout delivers lasting results. I am fairly often begging for a break but we power through under Monica's eagle eye that spots immediately if you are involving parts of your body that are not meant to be used at that time. I recommend Monica very highly to everyone and feel deprived if for any reason I have to miss a class. She is the best Pilates teacher I have ever experienced and her skill, experience and dedication are unmatched.
Monica's teaching is exceptionally professional, and the format of the class is just right: neat space, not crowded class, state-of-the-art material. All ingredients to make you content of spending a few hours per week with her and your classmates. It will take a good effort from you though because the flows of exercises she designs are not for the lazy ones. No possible cheating as Monica has a 360 degree vision and a sort of 6th sense where even if she doesn't look at you, she can sense that you're not doing the exact thing! And this makes you progress so good and so fast! The variety in the effort and the sensation you feel throughout the class that you're shaping up and toning your body, and relaxing your spirit just smoothly push you to your limits and actually stretch your limits to a further level. Pilates lovers or curious people, don't hesitate, Go for it!
I have been doing Pilates with Monica since 4 years now. Even if we moved around Delhi, I keep coming to her class. Monica is a great professional instructor. She has years of experience, she keep herself trained & undergo professional trainings for the benefit of her students. The last 2 years, she brought new practices from abroad to guarantee us the best practice. She is sweet& caring, Being there on a twice weekly basis, I have never being bored with her class. Beginner or advanced level, Monica is the one for you !
Having a superficial knowledge of Pilates from a few sessions in many differently countries, and knowing the benefits of it, I was fortunate enough to link up with Monica at her beautiful studio at the beginning of our posting in Delhi and I’ve now been attending twice weekly classes for over three years. Monica has an extremely well- equipped studio which would be appealing to anyone, And the way she conducts the classes, both individual and group that is special. First there is her smile that greets you before each and every class, then there is her enthusiasm and professionalism. She is always expanding her own knowledge of Pilates and is to the fore on new branches of it including gyrokinesis. She keeps her material up to date and in continual expansion. Her classes are always fun and never boring and I am delighted to recommend her to you.
I would wholeheartly recommend the pilates studio of Monica. The last three years I visited it twice a week. The classes were always rich in variety and diversity. Monica is a very experienced instructor, she always noticed our mistakes and corrected them or gace advices when we had problems. The atmosphere was every time relaxing and familiar, we had a lot of of fun and laughter.
Thank you, Monica Rastogi! I have had a fabulous experience with Pilates classes taught by Monica in the last 2 ½ years during my time in New Delhi. I will be missing these classes and my instructor, as we move on to our next posting.
"About 5 years ago I started doing Pilates for the first time in my life with Monica. I did not know anything about Pilates and I was not very fit. Initially, I found it very tough and challenging, but Monica has a talent for making each session different and fun,
