Yoga has many benefits; but when it is combined with exercising then it becomes really powerful. When I say yoga I am including meditation because meditation is the heart of yoga. Yoga is not yoga if we take away mediation. Remember yoga is the union between your soul and Atman, the spirit within you.
Yoga is taken by many as a replacement of exercising; but exercising is needed as much as yoga. I do exercising and yoga asanas four or five times a week and meditation practically every day. Well, if I am not feeling fine then I might avoid any of them or all of them. We have to adapt to different circumstances.
