What is yoga? The yoga practiced nowadays is not the yoga explained in the Gītā. Yoga means to connect. There must be two entities—the soul and Kṛṣṇa Himself. How will the soul and Kṛṣṇa be connected? They will be connected by bhakti. This is called bhakti-yoga. When the fruits of your activities are offered to Kṛṣṇa, then it will be karma-yoga. When you are becoming of your Gurudeva and are totally surrendered, then all the fruits of your activities are of Kṛṣṇa. This is pure bhakti and not karma-yoga. But, when you add something and offer the fruits of your activities to Kṛṣṇa, then it will be karma-yoga.
