Each sadhana which is full impregnated with devotion or Divine Concentration on Our Source is Great!
Without good intention not good result - yoga not different from full ethic life!
Meditation is only self observing process which must be present in all activities.
Meditation is not only outside state of consciousness or outside state of pure self, because meditation is basically natural form in outside life like concentration and samadhi.
Meditation is action without pose, or, when in action separate not actor and observer, or, when can live in one continue consciousness state without break with outside thinking about any form.
Meditation is very important because in higher yoga is part of samyama. Samyama is Divine Concentration where meditation is between state consciousness in which soul deep enter (samadhi) and state consciousness in which have concentration - 216 samyamas (minimum) have!
When meditation became full part of devotion soul can deeper enter in process self-realization, and in next steps of god-realization.
