One of the reasons I cringe when people put yoga into the exercise category is because I feel doing so fails to recognize yoga for the positive effects it has on the mind, body, and emotions. Some people's medicine chests are filled with pain relievers, sleep aids, anti-depressants, and so on. Mine is filled with yoga, pranayama, and meditation. Yoga may not cure all that ails me, but it sure does come close.

While I don't suggest that yoga replace traditional therapies, I sure do think that it's a perfect compliment.
