 In hindi we say yog but while transliterating from english, it is being written as yoga. The original word in sanskrit written as yog or yoga with an 'a' at the end of the word. it seems down south (in India) it is pronounced as yoga while in the north as yog.

There is no terminology called as “Yoga” in the Sanskrit. The word Yog is derived from the word 'Yuj' and 5000 years old Indian body of knowledge, whose literal meaning is Samadhi.

There is no such difference between yog and yoga. Yog is hindi pronunciation and yog is derived from sankrit word "yuj" and yoga is its English pronunciation.

Dear, Yoga is originally a Sanskrit term.

Those who know संस्कृत (Sanskrit) will read this term - योग as Yog.

But whenever a Sanskrit term is written in English, some grammatical rules are to be followed.

Like, any or every nown, if having a complete letter at the end of that word, will have a swar अ. That means - योग is य् + ओ +‌‌ ग् + अ 

So, it's written in English YOGA but pronounced Yog.

योगा (Yogaa) is the wrong pronounciation. 

You can see some people doing same mistake for terms like Charaka (चरक), ashtanga (अष्टांग), etc.

Hope you understood.
