Yogalates

Yogalates is a fusion of yoga and Pilates. Some poses look and feel like yoga, while others are key ingredients of a Pilates class. Movements are fluid and there's a focus on breathing as well as the transition from one pose to the next. You'll move your body into a pose, then do toning exercises rather than hold a static position.
