Yoga is more focused on the poses to build strength and centering. Pilates is more focused on movements to build core strength. Both require a great deal of supervision if you are starting out. I don’t recommend videos or dvds to start. The poses and movements, if not done correctly, can cause injury. Rather, I suggest you look for a gym that offers classes taught by qualified instructors (should have some nationally recognized certification). You can also go to studios and pay per class ($15-20 depending on the market), or you can pay for one-on-one instruction ($50-100). My advice, I would join a gym and attend classes. You will probably really enjoy the camaraderie among your classmates and the instructors are generally carefully screened for their qualifications, and the interpersonal skills. Best of luck.
