During the period of University,I joined a Yoga class,later because of spinal pain I went to hospital, the doctor told me that disks degenerate and rupture caused the pain, so I gave up practicing Yoga. I personally think the correct practice of Yoga itself has no problem, I blame the teacher put the different level students together in class, to entry-level students make high difficulty movement ,resulting in injuries. Spinal cord injury may have certain effect on fertility, I HATE HER!!! My friend is learning Pilates now, she said she felt healthier.

i think yoga is much okay compare to pilates. yoga uses the brain which control most of our nerves and muscles. finding the inner strength maybe is the solution to solve physical pain.

Yoga isn't real strinuous. Pilates is more active. I don't think either of these is going to be real fun if you a spinal pain. You can get books on Yoga(library or Amazon)and it is probably better for you atleast at first. There are alot of other things you can do to help yourself lose weight and be fit. Good luck!

I've personally never done pilates or yoga...I do work out though...I took pole dancing classes and learn how to use the pole to work out... I know what you're thinking, but I don't do strip tease or anything, just really use it as a prop. I also do "Flirty Girl Fitness", I love to dance and it keeps me in shape. Sometimes I don't like the music on the video, so I turn the TV down and turn my own music on and dance the way I want to. It gets you sweating and gets your blood pumping and it's fun!
