Śarīralaghu (शरीरलघु) [=Śarīralaghutā?] refers to “lightness of body”, according to the Dattātreyayogaśāstra 67c-d-69a-b:—Accordingly, “When purification of the channels occurs, signs manifest externally on the Yogin’s body. I shall mention all of them; lightness of body (śarīralaghutā), radiance, an increase in digestive fire and then leanness of the body should certainly arise”.
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).
