No! Pilates and Yoga are not the same. Yoga is a spiritual exercise with slow movements that get held for a longer period of time. Pilates focuses on the mind/body connection (but not in a spiritual way) and is done at a flowing, faster paced. Some of the exercises are similar but the bulk of the exercises are very different.
