Exercise is a repitive activity intended to develop specific physical or mental ability.  Exercise has a set pattern. It is usually discreet.  

Yoga encompasses Exercise.  It is much more.  It is an art.  The human body becomes a musical instrument or a paint brush, wherein aesthetic patterns are created in time and space.  As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has said, Yoga and Meditation reduce entropy.

Yoga is primarily a mental activity.  Even though specific muscles are invoked, mental awareness is primary. Yoga is exercise for the mind and body as a holistic whole.
