Just like you there so many people out there who are confused regarding this question that is mediation different from yoga? However, the fact is meditation is a part of yoga. There are eight limbs in yoga:
1. Yama (Do’s)
2. Niyama (Don’ts)
3. Asanas (Positions)
4. Pranayama (Control of breath or Life Force)
5. Pratyahara (Sense Withdrawal)
6. Dharana (Concentration)
7. Dhyana (Meditation)
8. Samadhi (Spiritual Ecstasy)

Now I think it got clearer to you as you can see meditation comes under the 8 limbs of yoga which is credited to an ancient age, Patanjali. Mediation is best considered to be done after the yoga sessions. Yoga session includes a variant of asanas in which there is proper stretching of an individual’s body.  
With the feverish pace and demands of recent life, many folks feel stressed and over-worked. It typically sounds like there's simply not enough time within the day to urge everything done.  
Many often we think to engage our self in meditation but due to lack of time and our busy schedule, we miss it!

However, if you practice meditation on a daily basis just for 15 minutes it can offer a great impact on your whole body. You will feel relaxed in your busy schedule, you will take important decisions more sincerely, and your brain will get enhanced too.

Meditation helps us to grasp our own mind. We are able to find out how to rework our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from sad to happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the purpose of the reworking meditations found within the Buddhist tradition.

“Prayer is when you talk to God and meditation is when you talk to yourself”

Thanks for the information.
