    Yoga and gym both have their own set of benefits but it’s up to the individual and what he or she needs for the body. The asanas or postures in yoga are gracefully controlled movements, while workouts in gym are more rigorous involving rapid movements. The forceful movements in gym workouts help increase the tension on one’s muscles, thus bulking them up and leading to quick weight loss, but there is also a greater risk of injury. With regular exercising, there are a few mistakes one tends to make.

    Most of the time, we don’t challenge the body enough, or we push it too much. Also, a lot of people while working out skip on the warming up and cooling down, which is an integral part of exercising and necessary to maximize workout benefits and avoiding injuries. Yoga involves the mentioned principles.

    Also, gym focuses only on the physical aspect while yoga teaches one – proper exercise, breathing techniques, relaxation, positive thinking and also about positive diet.

    Indeed. rockys, you need to start interacting, not posting cut and paste, and badly worded at that, posts.
