Kat Frost does the Pilates exercise 'swimming'. She is on hands and knees with one arm and one leg outsretched.As the benefits of yoga and Pilates become increasingly well-known, so do the similarities between the two disciplines.

Yogalates beautifully unites yoga and Pilates, which both improve core and pelvic floor strength, increase flexibility and release muscular tension.

Both yoga and Pilates focus on improving co-ordination, balance and mind-body connection. The link between mind, breath and movement helps to relax the mind.

This creative class is full of variety and includes a focus on correct posture and how to build a mental connection with, and strength in, the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Flowing yoga sequences smoothly combine with Pilates exercises, breathing practises and relaxation.
