Nirodha means something like an obstruction or the act of obstructing, as well as cessation. So the idea in yoga and Buddhism is to bring afflictions to a definitive end in such a way that they are obstructed and cannot arise again. If you would like your friends to think you're cool, you can tell them that you use yoga as a kind of prophylactic.
