Depends what you do at the gym. Yoga helps with balance and flexibility. The gym can help with a myriad of things, depending on what you choose to do when you go there.
Judging by your OP, you want an alternative to the sedentary and complacent lifestyle that results from working in an office setting. Have you thought about playing organized sports? They can do miracles for your health, while never really giving you the feeling that you are "working out". If this isn't an option, going to the gym and doing the elliptical, some biking or getting on the treadmill will have the same effects.
Of course, strength training is always an option at the gym, but is much more time consuming and diet-constricting.
Which leads to my next point: Diet. What you put in your body is just as important as all of the exercise you choose to undertake. With the right diet, you could get away with around 2 hours a week of exercise, and still maintain a healthy body and weight.
I work as an IT professional, and you'd be surprised if you saw our office and the staff. We exercise together regularly, have a softball team, ball hockey team, etc... We share healthy recipes all the time, and even have an awesome protein bar recipe that we all use. Its quite motivational if you get your friends and co-workers involved with getting healthy at the same time.
I'm not sure you're stating the question clearly...it's sort of asking: what's better salad or a restaurant..??..you can do yoga at home, the gym or a yoga studio - on the other hand a gym might be able to provide yoga, weight training, aerobic exercises, training classes, etc. Being healthy consists of a good diet and regular exercise...set some realistic goals, find out what type of exercise interests you and go for it.
