Ārava (आरव) refers to a “sound” [?], according to the Mokṣopāya (verse 5.54.4-5, 9 and 16).—Accordingly, “When the first part of Om whose [entire] length consists of three and a half parts, was [articulated] as a clear sound (sphuṭa-ārava) [prathame'ṃśe sphuṭārave] by which the body quivered because the vital airs were slightly agitated, the process of expelling the vital airs, [which is] called Recaka, made the whole body empty, just as Agastya drank [all] the water [and made] the ocean [empty]...”.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
