Yoga or Pilates, or both?

Yoga is a body and mind exercise aimed at reducing stress by correcting breathing and relaxing muscles. It involves active and passive stretching to increase muscle length and improve joint movement.

Pilates is a strengthening program that uses body weight and equipment to strengthen the core muscles. These are the muscles surrounding the spine that give support and are usually weak in patients with neck and back pain.

The combination of Pilates and Yoga is good to improve both flexibility and stability
