There are ten guṇas with their opposite guṇas. [...] Sāndra (“dense”) has the predominant bhūta (element) of earth, water and the associated actions of “solidifying/prasādana”; while Drava (“liquid”) has the predominant bhūta (element) of water and is associated with the action “liquifying/viloḍana”.

Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Prasādana (प्रसादन) refers to “stability (of mind)”, according to the Pātañjalayogaśāstra (i.e., the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali) 1.34.—Accordingly, while discussing Prāṇāyāma and Samādhi: “Or [stability of mind (citta-prasādana) is attained] through exhalation and retention of the breath”.—[Commentary]—“Exhalation is the emission of the abdominal breath through the nostrils with particular care, and retention is stopping the breath. Through both [of these], one should accomplish stability of mind”.
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).
