I love pilates and yoga. Both programs are perfect for those with small spaces to workout in, such as apartment dwellers like me! I first discovered pilates a few months after I got married. I fell in love with both yoga and pilates because you only need basic equipment! The only equipment I use is a yoga mat and yoga blocks when my wrists hurt or ache from an injury. Other than that, I mainly use the yoga mat! I have seen exercise balls being used in either yoga and pilates but never really considered adding them to my routine because I don’t know how to use them nor have any workout DVDs specifically for the ball.
