Yes, yoga of course is a good substitute:
Yoga keeps your body strong, as it involves all the muscles in your body to hold and balance yoga asanas (poses). The various yoga postures strengthen your feet, legs, hands, abdomens, lower back, legs, and shoulders.
Practicing yoga not only keeps your body fit and healthy but also makes your mind active and improves concentration.


Depends on your goal – my aim is to increase muscle size, so definately not.. but you should fine with yoga.


Yoga is good for your body and gives you a certain amount of strength. But if you want to gain muscle and looking to build proper strength then weight training is the way to go.
