Which would you learn given the choice, and why? Yoga or Pilates?
Yoga, because it has a strong mental/intellectual component which I believe adds an extra dimension and makes it fun, (even when the moves are challenging). In contrast, Pilates just sounds like hard work to me!!
Probably Yoga, as I believe it's a more comprehensive system.
For me, it would also depend on the instructors available though. I know there are good Pilates teachers where I live, but the Yoga teachers I've seen locally didn't come across as very experienced or knowledgeable.
Yoga, because it works on so many levels, physical as well as mental. Not only do you tone all muscle groups you learn how to control your mind and free yourself from the constant internal chatter so many suffer from!
I'm also going to say yoga. Yoga combines the best of cardiovascular fitness, strength, balance, stamina, flexibility, mental focus and core stability. There is much more to yoga than just postures or asanas and you can take it a far or as deep as you would like. Yoga is also very portable and you can do it anywhere and anytime.
To my knowledge Pilates, which can be amazingly beneficial, is primary focused on core strength and stability as the means to strengthen your body and provide flexibility. It is not as readily available and it is hard to do reformer workouts at home on your own because of the equipment requirements.
