I like walking. I think there's no better way to both stay fit and recreate. Jog, if you dun feel walking is enough. Run, even. Ah. Well. Outta gym and yoga, I'd choose Yoga for the recreation and gym for the adrenaline.

I do yoga/Pilates fusion and Piloxing. Love it. Now I've set my eyes on Kettlebell workout.

Depends on what your goals are when you refer to fitness. Yoga is good for maintaining flexibility, but you are not going to make much strength gains with it. A proper gym regime is good for gaining mass and strength, but it won't give you the flexibility. And both of them won't build endurance like cardio.

My suggestion? Combination of three. Gym for strength and mass, stretching (not necessarily everything of yoga, just stretches), and cardio for keeping the aerobic system in good condition.

But most people forget the most important thing when it comes to fitness. Diet. That is at least as important, if not more, as exercise.

depends what you want to achieve.. yoga wont transform your body quickly(may make you leaner and improve flexibility over a period of long time 6 months  may be).. you would need intense exercises, weights etc to help strngthen and change shape of your body fast.. (2 months if you are a regular)
gym is never a waste of money according to me.. doing yoga alone at home? most likely you will be bored and skip.
at gym looking at fitter and hotter people you get motivated automatically LOL..atleast in my case!

I think a lot of people are confusing yoga with power yoga. There are a lot of different kinds of yoga.

Power yoga or advanced vinyasa is really vigorous and intense, and includes cardio and strength training. Seamlessly moving from plank, lowered plank (chaturanga dandasa), handstands, headstands, etc. doesn't just "improve your flexibility." It builds muscle and increases cardio capacity.

Before doing power yoga regularly, I just had skinny arms and no core strength or upper body strength, and now I have much more toned arms, and a strong upper body. Doing plank and chaturanga dandasana sequences is way harder than doing regular old push-ups.

I have friends who pump iron at the gym or do TV workouts who have a hard time keeping up in power yoga.
