Svapnātīta (स्वप्नातीत) refers to “that which is beyond sleep”, according to the Śivayogadīpikā by Sadāśivayogīśvara: a text dealing with Śaivism and Haṭhayoga in two hundred and eighty-nine verses.—Accordingly, “O Guru, when will we reach that which is called Śiva's no-mind [state,] beyond sleep (svapnātīta) and waking and free from death and life”.
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).
