It contains eight dimensions, respectively external regulation, introjected regulation, identified regulation, integrated regulation, accomplish, experience and know.2. The average of yoga exercise motivation in our country is 3.536, the level is in the medium. The average of every factor in order is:external regulation(3.989)>introjected regulation>identified regulation> complish/experience>know> integrated regulation (2.355)3. The exercise motivation had the significant gender, age and education differences. There was significant difference only in identified regulation between boys and girls (M>F). For external regulation, the subjects under the age of 18 and over 50 years old> the subjects with the age from 19 to 50 years old (p<0.01); For integrated regulation/know, the subjects with the age from 18 to 29 years old< the age from 30 to 50 years old (p<0.01),and for know, the subjects over the age of 50 years old>others (p<0.01).For identified regulation, the high qualifications> the low qualifications(p<0.01), for introjected regulation.the high school>others (p<0.01).4. The exercise motivation had the significant practice time, exercise frequency and each exercise time differences. Overall, for the motivation with low internalization (external regulation,introjected regulation) the subjects with less practice time, lower exercise frequency and less each exercise time got higher scores than the ones with more practice time, higher exercise frequency and more each exercise time; for the motivation with high internalization (identified regulation, integrated regulation, complish/ experience, know),the results comes the opposite.5.There was significant correlation between exercise motivation and behavior, and the motivation with high internalization was significantly positive correlated with Yoga exercises behavior and had significantly positive prediction for exercises behavior, Otherwise,,the results comes the opposite.
