There is a need for Yoga teachers to understand Sanskrit. To communicate with each other it helps to know what someone is talking about.
Example: A teacher talks about mountain pose. I think she means Tadasana, but she means Adho Mukha Svanasana. Two schools of thought and yoga have two different mountain poses. If you say the name in Sanskrit - everyone understands.
There is only one Adho Mukha Svanasana and only one Tadasana. There is no confusion in Sanskrit.
