Śivayogin (शिवयोगिन्) refers to one who practices Śaivite Yoga, as defined in the Śivapurāṇa 1.17. Accordingly, “[...] As for those who are devoted to activities and those who both refrain from and indulge in activities, the gross Praṇava is recommended. [...] Śivayogins are of three types being devoted to rites, austerities and Japas. [...] A pure man shall obtain liberation only step by step, beginning with Sālokya as a result of being purified by the worship of Śivayogins with sixteen services and homage”.
