Namaskar Girbey,

When people gather to practice yoga there will always be Sanskrit to a limited degree. Many Europeans, Asians, Africans, and Americans have a sprinkling of Sanskrit in their classes. Sanskrit is very much alive even if it isn't spoken on the street corner.

In English one pose may be called butterfly, bound angle, cobbler, or something else. In Sanskrit the same pose is called only by one name. That name is Baddha Konasana, which means: Bound Angle Pose. This is an example of how yoga teachers from different parts of the world cross reference a term or a method.

It is understood that you have a fitness background and you teach exercise classes, but you should be aware that Hatha yoga or any form of yoga is the incorporation of mind, body, and spirit. The more you learn about Yoga, the more you will appreciate the time you spent learning.

Please try to relax and enjoy your life each day. Do your best to study without making your life stressful. Do what you can and sleep well at night.

Om Shanti,

A.S. Kumar
