Which one are you trying first, BETHEBESTME2?

For me, yoga all the way!

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

They are both good!
As far as which one is 'better' for you... that is for you to determine.

I think this is a matter of personal preference. Both pilates and yoga can be done regardless of size.

Do know that there are many types of yoga and it can be very confusing to somebody new. Here's an article that might help:

Whichever one you try, remember to not be upset if you can't do everything right away. Both practices take some time to build your skills and movements.

Good luck!

One type of exercise isn't necessarily better than the other no matter your size. Does one seem more interesting to you? Maybe you can a few classes of each and see which you prefer? There is even yogilates (or some such hybrid of the name) which combines both.

If you decide to try them, be sure to let the instructor know you're new and if you have any physical issues. That way the instructor can help with modifications or alternative moves.
