Yoga vs Gym

Although both have same motive which is to keep us fit and strong, but difference is in execution. Both involve physical activity, the difference is in the way we perform them.

Yoga have poses or asanas  while  gym have weighted exercises and high intensity workout whereas Yoga is done without weight. Both have their own benefits and way of performing. You need a room full of machines, weights, barbell, dumbbells to perform gym workout, whereas to perform yoga all you need is a mat and open healthy environment, nothing else.

As I said above both have their own working way and benefits, let me explain you both yoga and gym in more depth.

Yoga focus on both external and internal body, many people consider yoga as morning exercise where people stretch, twist and breathe in different and complex ways  but in actual it is more than that, it is actually the most superficial aspect of this profound science of unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and body.

Yoga is like ocean full of asanas or poses, And every asana has its own specialty and is full of  benfits.



Also known as gymnastics, a 3000 year old practice developed by English countries. you need a room or open place full with machines and weights to perform gym workout, it can’t be done without equipment.
