body building in gym and yoga is different. in gym,,the muscles r pumped out. but in yoga, nerves get relaxed and relaxes d whole body

For body buiding going to gym is the best option.I think yogic techniques purify your body and mind.It is very difficult to get a good yoga guru.If you practice kundalini yoga,you can attain cosmic power.But practicing such yogas with out a proper guru is very dangerous.I think simple mediation method is good for us than practicing, difficult yogic method.

You should do both. You should take care of mind and body, so, do Yoga and gym exercises.

I think that going to the gym is better exercise in terms of building muscle or cardio fitness, but yoga is so relaxing and some poses are pretty difficult and good for building strength and flexibility. My favorite exercises are yoga and swimming.
