Different paths are available, each with practices that can fit with the varied psychological natures of different people:
Raja yoga can include physical exercises to prepare the body for prolonged meditation. As part of this, or related to it, Hatha Yoga uses physical movement, postures, and breathing exercises to improve physical health and clear the mind. These may be done mainly as a type of exercise and stretching. Or, in some settings, they may be accompanied by philosophies of opposing energies, power, balance, or purification, or as ways to “get in touch with our core of existence which is the core of all existence . . .”
For many religious naturalists, Jnana Yoga may be of interest where, through study and reflection, seeking to recognize and respond to the true nature of things can be appreciated as a spiritual path.
