Āvṛtti (आवृत्ति).—One of the six devices which form the requisite qualifications of Sanskrit grammar;—Āvṛtti is also a repetition but it differs a great deal from anuvṛtti which means the extension of some words from the preceding sūtras to the subsequent sūtras, while āvṛtti consists in the recurrence of a pada in the following sūtras a number of times to give a specific sense. It is more or less an atribute of adhikārasūtra.

Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch

Āvṛtti (आवृत्ति) refers to the “cultivation (of gnosis)”, according to Vijñānabhikṣu in his sixteenth-century Sāṅkhyasāra verse 6.2-3.—Accordingly: “One who is not capable of Rājayoga, is suitable for Haṭhayoga. In the Yogavāsiṣṭha, Vasiṣṭha was taught thus by Bhusuṇḍa. In Rājayoga, one cultivates gnosis (jñāna-āvṛtti) and, in Haṭhayoga, the breathing exercises and postures. [Both of] them are important. Since they are auxiliaries, one [depends on] the other. They should [both] be practised according to one's capacity”.
