Pranam,

The best thing to do is create a cross reference ( Sanskrit / English) chart for your students. At least they will know what the words mean, if they open their eyes and minds. The deeper problem is a narrow minded view of anything outside the box.

Forget about teaching more Sanskrit in your classes, unless you suddenly have an influx of open-minded yoga students. As it is, you might have to say everything in English until cooler heads prevail.

It's a sorry state of affairs when people jump to conclusions about anything unfamiliar. We are in the 21st century, but there are those who still live under rocks.

Om Shanti,

Diane
