Namaste Amos,

Thank you for that. There is no need to push Sanskrit in Yoga classes. The US is not India. The US is indeed a unique place with many idealogies and religions that manage to peacefully cxist. In my homeland a Yoga teacher might also want to be careful speaking Sanskrit (Arabic would be suggested). I don't think music CDs with Sanskrit mantra would be welcome either. In deeply religious areas, Yoga classes should be taught in the native language (English in the US). There is no need to have classes in Sanskrit, especially if it causes problems. It is interesting that your students will tolerate Krishna Das. This is very promising.

Peace be with you,

Hamed
