Exercise can be defined as any physical activity intended to improve fitness and strength. There are a lot of ways people go about exercising their body. When you engage yourself in an exercise, it enhances the blood circulation in the body. They are so many benefits one can derive from exercising regularly.

Yoga, on the other hand, can be any of the Hindu disciplines towards training the consciousness of a person into a perfect spiritual insight and freedom. It is also a form of exercise, but this time around, it emphasizes more on a system of exercise intended to promote and make you the controller of your body and mind.

The sympathetic nervous system is significantly at work when you are exercising your body, while the parasympathetic nervous system is at work during yoga exercise. Another difference is that; you consume more oxygen during exercise than you do during yoga.
