Help Me Understand Yoga Positions Because I Think They're So Boring

My cousin teaches yoga so I've been to a few of her classes. And I did maternity yoga or prenatal yoga or whatever when I was pregnant. But seriously, I just don't get it.
Do I not have the mental discipline for yoga or something? I find it so incredibly dull. I'd rather take any other exercise class than yoga. Is yoga hard? Sure, I leave the class feeling like I got a workout and everything. But it's not a fun workout for me. Why do people obsess over it?
I also suck at meditating so maybe I'm just not good at stillness. There are a thousand other exercise activities I love : hiking, swimming, kayaking, boating, dancing, climbing.
With those exercises I feel like I'm really moving and doing something, not just switching body positions. I love using my brain while exercising, like learning a dance routine.
So why doesn't that translate to yoga for me? Why do I always feel impatient in my yoga class? Why is everyone so obsessed with it? Talk to me, yoga lovers. For awhile it seemed like a fad but it's not going away. Maybe I just need to accept that it's not for me and keep doing my thang.
I completely respect and understand why other people love it. But some others get way too uppity and pretentious about their yoga devotion. Most of you are just doing it for exercise.
Pretty much.
Pretty much.
