Yoga VS Pilates Benefits
for Enlightenment

Yoga VS Pilates; which is best for the spiritual seeker of Truth, Salvation, and Enlightenment?

Pilates and the various Hatha Yoga styles are both physical, can be done by men and women, and contain various exercises and routines.

Hatha Yoga and Pilates both offer full body workouts, capable of burning calories and shedding weight. Both emphasize the use of mental and physical control.

Both help in striking a balance between strength and flexibility, and provide strenuous symmetrical workouts for all muscle groups.

The big difference when comparing just the physical challenges and benefits they provide is the Pilates machine which ads resistance to the workouts.

This machine can help increase muscle tone and strength more so than exercises done alone could.

For purely physical purposes, both styles are beneficial and can both be integrated into daily workouts. The two styles can complement each other quite nicely.

For the spiritual seeker of Truth, Salvation and Enlightenment however Yoga is by far the more beneficial path.

Hatha, the physical side of Yoga is just a small part in the overall union of Yoga. Yoga’s true purpose is to advance people on their spiritual path.

Through the other branches of yoga, students realize that they are not the body or the mind, but the pure conscious awareness beyond them.

Those ready to awaken, or already on the path towards spiritual awakening, begin to greatly desire the true knowledge of whether or not there is a purpose to life, and if there is life after death.

Jnana Yoga, Raja Yoga, and Karma Yoga teach ancient truths that are beyond intellectual comprehension and must be realized intuitively within ones soul.

As we are all headed towards spiritual realization, why not begin now? Spiritual awakening is the natural evolution of consciousness.

All spiritual seekers should begin their quest by seeking out True Wisdom. We have entered the Information Age.

Seek and you shall find.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
Siddhartha Gautama
(The Buddha)
