4/6. The correct answer for the ones I got wrong was both so I don't feel like an idiot.

So I don't know much about either, although I practice both at home. Oh well.

The answer for question 5 says I'm wrong - but the explanation says I'm correct. Boo.

I am one of those "really inflexible" people I guess. Yoga was always really stressful for me because I could never get into the positions no matter how hard I worked. I left crying so many times. Pilates has been a godsend because I find it relaxing and strengthening, and I don't have to contort myself. It also helps with balance.

Agree with michlny, yoga's much better for flexibility in my book. Maybe pilates helps if you are extremely unflexible to start with, but for me, I rarely if ever even use my whole range of motion in pilates.

Just went to Pilates last night. Our instructor was tough but good. She reminded me of my old ballet teachers.

I love Pilates, but the instructor at my gym isn't very good so I don't go to her class. It really bums me out because I would really like to mix it up by adding that class.
