Yoga and meditation are both practices that promote health and wellbeing.
Yoga is very physical and helps strengthen the body through breathing and poses. Some of the poses are very challenging and require a lot of mental as well as physical strength to hold them.
There is no age limit on practicing yoga, and no expensive equipment to get started. All you need is something loose and comfortable to wear. You may also want to invest in a yoga mat and maybe a few large cushions. Any of those items can be bought very cheaply and will last you a long time.

Meditation focuses solely on the mind, but will also improve your physical health as well. Just like yoga, breathing is very important. In a way meditation is a workout for the mind. You’ll feel calmer and much more focused. You’ll find problems easier to solve without getting stressed or emotionally involved.
Many people that practice yoga also practice meditation, as they’re both so intertwined.
The main difference though is unlike yoga you can practice meditation anywhere as it doesn’t require any space to move your body. I’ve even practiced meditation while waiting in the doctors surgery! No one would notice as I’m only doing breathing exercises. If you live in a small space with limited room for exercising, you could always use your local park for practicing yoga poses.
