For Yoga teachers to speak to each other about a technique over the web, it would be useful to have some working knowledge of Sanskrit. For teachers to impress students - might not be useful. For teachers to say, chant, or practice Sanskrit with students of different religions is questionable.
One example: An orthodox Jew doesn't say the names of God. In the Hebrew Holy Books the name of God is sacred. This said - out of deep respect for the name of God, Jews don't say the sacred names and they don't erase them if the scared names are written. "Om" the sacred syllable is such a word. This is just one of many examples.
