Rest day gives your muscle groups a day off of heavy weights so that they can repair broken muscle tissue! This is essential to building muscle! You can do yoga and many different things just nothing that involves weights.

Its whatever you feel comfortable with, but your body does need rest in order to rebuild broken down muscle from your workouts

I used to do those things on most of my rest days. Never was a problem to me. Overtraining is a myth (unless you don't eat or sleep)
