By yoga, we usually mean in the West, hatha yoga, a system of exercises to gain control of (especially) body and mind.
Yoga (Sanskrit: योग, "yuk", "unite", "master", also "reborn") is in its broad context: a Hindu philosophy that teaches to control the mind, the feeling and the body to reach the association with God. In a more common, western concept, with yoga it is meant to be hatha yoga: a type of yoga (hatha-yoga) that consists of a system of exercises.
