Praśithila (प्रशिथिल) refers to “relaxed” (e.g., “making the arms relaxed”), according to the Jayākhyasaṃhitā verse 33.19.—Accordingly, “[The Yogin] should make the joints of his body loose, his chest broad and shoulders comfortable. Having made his arms relaxed (praśithila), he should slightly tilt the head [down]”.
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).
