Namaskar Girbey,

Firstly, don't stress out about the Sanskrit. It is not that important at this point.

My suggestion would be that you contact your tutor today, by email. He or she will call you, or email, you today. You have two courses and you have the Intro Course in your hands. You probably should follow the directions for the Intro Course first. This would help you develop a lot of the basics. I know you're in a rush, but you really do need to develop a foundational base in your training.

This is just my opinion but you will never be sorry for the little bit of time that you invest in the Introductory Course. Yoga is not fitness and there is a terminology learning curve, but you can work it out. Just remember that - that Language of Yoga book can be put aside for continuing education later on. We are all learning Sanskrit by the day. Also, how many 200-hour teachers know anything significant about Sanskrit? None that I know of. If you are going to travel on a road, the last thing you want to get stressed out about is the length of the trip. Better off to proceed forward and follow the step-by-step directions.

Let us know how you make out. You're in good hands.

Om Shanti,
