How does yoga differ from other forms of activity e.g. aerobics?   

Iyengar yoga focuses on correct positioning of the body, on extension not contraction. The work is progressive, but the progression from basic to more complex understanding of the postures is different in each individual. It will not interfere with other sports – it merely makes you more effective in whatever you do.
