Hello everyone,

I am considering yoga and/or pilates as a tool in my recovery. I also perform weightlifting regulary.

My first question: Is yoga just as effective as pilates for keeping me fit?

What good yoga or pilates DVDs are out there?

Can I perform yoga/pilates and weightlifting too or do i have to choose one or the other?

um ...you should do what is right for you -

I do not like yoga - it bothers me -

--
i like pilates very much

it's more structured - more fun -

and my body cuts into shape very fast from it -
VERY -

you have to find what's right for you -

I do some weight lifting -

but also a lot of cardio -

it just depends on what your goals are -

mine is to keep 'just fit' health first - and then -

a bit of keeping slim - and fit

- i've never found a video -

i like going to the gym - at least -

it gets me out doing it -

be sure it's fun -

if you 'kill yourself' on the machines or whatever

that would be "counter productive" eh??


good luck
