Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
Lāṭikā (लाटिका) or Lāṭī refers to one of the types of Rīti (‘style’ or ‘essence’ of poetry) according to Viśvanātha Kavirāja (Sāhityadarpaṇa IX.1-2) and Bhoja (Sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa).
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (shastra) of performing arts, (natya—theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing Dramatic plays (nataka), construction and performance of Theater, and Poetic works (kavya).
Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Latikā (लतिका) refers to a “vine”, according to the Haṭhapradīpikā of Svātmārāma: an influential 15th-century Sanskrit manual on Hatha-Yoga dealing with techniques to channel one’s vital energy.—Accordingly, “All methods of Haṭha and Layayogas are for the attainment of Rājayoga. The man who has ascended to Rājayoga cheats death. The highest reality is the seed, Haṭhayoga the field and detachment the water. Because of [these] three, the no-mind state, which is the wish-fulfilling vine (unmanī-kalpa-latikā), immediately shoots forth”.
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).

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!).
