Atiyatna (अतियत्न) refers to “intense effort”, according to the Hemacandra’s Yogaśāstra (verse 5.6); Cf. Pātañjalayogaśāstra (verse 1.31).—Accordingly, “That external emission of the breath, [which is performed] with intense effort (atiyatna) [and flows] from the abdomen through the nose, the crown of the head and mouth, is considered to be the exhalation”.
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).
